Delicious! The secret about letting thighs get tacky before cooking really kept the coating on so the chicken meat remained moist. Two thumbs up from my guys.

It came out wonderful. Baked it for an hour covered and 10 minutes uncovered. Then put bbq sauce on (the honey bbq) and it back in the for 10 more minutes uncovered. My kids loved it.
improvised on the spices. the buttermilk made the chicken tender and juicy. will make again!

Chicken turned out very tender but flavour was quite bland. Would add extra salt/seasoning.
Chicken was pretty bland. Though it came out very moist and tender, I had to throw some seasoning salt on it at the end to give it flavor. Meh.
Delicious! I did add a little Garlic but that just cause I’m a lover of Garlic !! My fiancé loved it too. I just added some roasted veggies

this recipe turned out fantastic I did put my own twist on it. I used chicken legs and my own combination of spices I chopped up green onion mushroom carrots and red potatoes and put that in with the mix and it was delicious. next time and there will be a next time I will soak my chicken in the buttermilk overnight.

Curdled a little, but was amazing....I used plain paprika and added carrots, onions and whole small potatoes. Baked all together for 1 hour covered lightly with tin foil. Perfect meal, one pan Wonder.😁

Very moist and flavorful!

Great! I used garlic powder in place of garlic salt & increased the kosher salt to a total 1/2 tsp.

The chicken was very tender, though it was too bland for our taste. I don't see myself making this dish again as written in the recipe, but I might try doctoring it up to give the dish some more flavor.

Not bad. We tried to modify so it wouldn't take so long but I think we pulled it out too fast. Overall it was pretty tasty though, there cumin was really strong but it was good

Did not look at all like the picture, but still tasted pretty good! The picture gives it an almost "fried" look, but mine definitely just looked like baked thighs with spices on top.

Delicious and moist! Simple and easy. The only thing I might add next time is a little more kick to the flavor.

This was really good and it was so soft!! Probably the softest chicken I've had. I'll be using buttermilk for my chicken from now on.
