Spice rubs are for the barbecue! False! We've been developing recipes like Chile Margarita Shrimp Tacos, Cowboy Crust Cashews and this recipe for oven-fried buttermilk chicken to inspire you to think outside the BBQ when it comes to spice rubs & blends. Who would've thought that adding a spicy coffee rub to cashews, butter and brown sugar would create a symphony in your mouth? Well, this chicken is right up there and you will be singing when you take the first juicy bite! Allow the chicken to marinate in the buttermilk and rub mixture for a couple of hours. The enzymes in buttermilk act as a tenderizer and help keep the chicken juicy while it bakes. The addition of Smoky Honey Habanero rub is a sweet and spicy surprise that elevates the usual buttermilk chicken. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
Note: the chicken pictured was made using gluten-free all purpose flour mixture. It will be equally delicious using all-purpose flour of your choice.
