Patter Fam Sauces

Southwestern Buttermilk Chicken
(serves 12)
3 cups buttermilk
2 lime, zested and juiced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons ancho chili powder (or any pure chili powder)
3 teaspoons ground coriander
3 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
Patter Fam Holy Cow Hot sauce, to taste
1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 bone-in or boneless chicken breasts halved
Canola oil

Whisk together the buttermilk, lime zest and juice, garlic, chili powder, coriander, cumin, turmeric, hot sauce, cilantro, and salt and pepper, to taste, in a large bowl. Pour the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag, add the chicken, seal the bag and refrigerate. Marinate boneless up to 4 hours.  Bone in should marinate for 6 hours.


Preheat the grill pan over medium-low heat for boneless breasts.  Remove the meat from the marinade letting most of the marinade drip back into the bag. Place one to two tablespoons of oil in a cast iron pan or non-stick pan.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste, on both sides. Grill until golden brown and charred on both sides and just cooked through.
