A soak in herb-laced buttermilk imparts a slight tang to this chicken while tenderizing the meat. The key to grilling chicken is to create two heat zones: one for high, direct heat (over the coals) and one for low, indirect heat (away from the coals).

    This is one of our favorite simple, but so delicious. I typically use boneless, skinless thighs, which is outstanding, but I've also been known to use breasts as well. Leave the chicken in the buttermilk for as long as you can for the most flavor. Definitely a keeper.
