Fried Chicken with Buttermilk Soak. What does buttermilk do to chicken? You’ll notice this recipe calls for soaking the chicken drumsticks in seasoned buttermilk for at least 1 hour before cooking. Why is this necessary? Soaking chicken drumsticks in buttermilk makes the meat tender. While harsher acids like lemon juice or vinegar can tenderize, they can also dry out the meat. But soaking chicken in buttermilk helps it stay juicy while tenderizing the meat.
