A question about a recipe: Classic Southern Buttermilk Bathed Fried Chicken

I have a question about the recipe "Classic Southern Buttermilk Bathed Fried Chicken" from Chef James. My chicken has been sitting in the buttermilk since last night. Can I let it brine until tomorrow evening? Change of plans and I won't be able to fry it up tonight? Please help.

I would not brine chicken any longer than 24 hours or the meat will turn to mush. If you can't cook the chicken tonight, I would take it out of the buttermilk, wipe off any excess, and keep your chicken refrigerated until tomorrow evening when you can cook it.

what HalfPint said. 48 hours or so is too long to marinate anything other than Sauerbraten. The meat will lose any semblance of texture.

Thank you. The last we want for dinner is mush.
