    Celiac.com 09/27/2019 - This is another great recipe that comes to us from one of our favorite food blogs on the web, Food Wishes. If you're a fan of buttermilk fried chicken, then this version of buttermilk chicken for the grill might make a welcome addition to your summer grilling repertoire. Basically, it's the same delicious chicken, without the breading and frying. Best of all, it's gluten-free! Just marinate the chicken until it's time to cook. Then, toss it on a hot grill and wait for the magic. Yum!

    Ingredients for 2 servings:

    • 1 whole chicken (about 2½ to 3 pounds), cut in half as shown in video below

    For the marinade:

    • 2 cups cultured buttermilk
    • ¼ cup brown sugar
    • 4 cloves crushed garlic
    • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 tablespoon black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne
    • 2 tablespoons kosher salt

    Into a large mixing bowl, add buttermilk, sugar and vinegar, followed by the garlic and dry spices.

    Place chicken in and the marinade into a plastic bag, then place bag into the large mixing bowl for at least 4 hours, preferably 8 hours. 

    When it's time to cook, remove chicken from bag, and pat dry with a paper towel.

    Arrange chicken on a hot, lightly oiled grill, and cook until done.

    Serve with your favorite gluten-free sides.
