I wonder if mixing a bit of plain yoghurt with homemade buttermilk would work - expect it would.

I took this idea and crossed it with a bit of a KFC thing - crackers blitzed with herbs and cornflakes and gram flour, then coated chicken drumsticks with the mix. I didn't have buttermilk so I added lemon juice to milk and used that. I would usually use mayo to get the coating to stick, and I think I'd do that next time. But the marinade time in the 'buttermilk' made them beautifully moist and tender, so I wouldn't skip that bit - I'd do both.

They were a hit with all the family.
As my picture shows, I've suddenly become younger :-)  DD was of the opinion that her picture should be here, not mine!

That nearly made me sick watching Jamie Oliver's video of what is in chicken nuggets.

Another reason why we have a thermomix.

I just made these tonight and they were delicious for DD4, DS2 and my husband and I. I just used milk with lemon juice and it worked really well-will definitely make these again. I can't believe how easy they were. Thanks a lot :)

Have made these twice now and they are delish. DH and I even like them, and we hate chicken nuggets. These are just like crumbed chicken.... YUM YUM YUM
First time I made them with crushed Ritz biscuits. Second time with cornflakes crumbs.

Have to say the cornflake crumbs went crispier and golden. Also added some dried mixed herbs and a sprinkling of onion flakes to the crumbs.

I made these tonight and they were a real hit with the kids.  Only trouble was my crumbs got a bit soggy towards the end and tended not to stick too well.  I might try the mash potato trick next time.  Perhaps I needed to let the buttermilk drain off a bit more?  I kind of plopped them straight from the buttermilk into the crumbs so it's no wonder they got a bit soggy! Love meals which I can disguise as a treat for the kids!
