Ever since seeing these on Nigella's show , I have been making these with gluten free crackers, but prior to my TM I used to crush the crackers in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. Now I do them in the TM and the whole process is much easier. The buttermilk is crucial to the entire recipe, it seems to elevate the taste of the chicken to another level entirely. Great recipe! My kids always request it- they could eat it 7 days a week if I let them!!
