buttermilk marinade - how long is too long?

Lynndsey Rigberg | Aug 16, 2011 11:39 PM


A friend of mine was coming to visit and I was marinading chicken in buttermilk to make "unfried" chicken (oven roasted).

But now her schedule has changed and she's not coming tomorrow, but Saturday. Will this chicken last?

I've tried to research the CH board and online, but can't seem to find a definitive answer:
is it possible to marinade chicken for TOO LONG? Is there any danger of the flesh breaking down too much?

Thanks for your help!
