‘Buttermilk’ chicken with black bean and avocado salad

Put things together the night before to roast the chicken tomorrow. It takes just a few minutes and the difference it makes to the chicken is well worth it – soft and succulent. I don’t have any butter milk and use just ordinary milk for this dish. It’s still very good indeed! And if you can’t find black beans use pinto or mixed salad beans.Buttermilk chickenPlace your chicken pieces in a container (I’m using 2 legs and 2 breasts as I’ve got a guest), approximately half a pint of milk, some salt and pepper and a heaped teaspoon of mustard powder, a couple of cloves of garlic. Mix things up a little. Buttermilk chicken When you’re ready to roast.  Put the oven on 200 degrees. Take the chicken out of the marinade, shake it a bit, and put the pieces in a roasting tray.
