They look great jamberie. Did you cook them in the oven? Your crumbs are much coarser than mine - maybe that was the problem with min not browning.

Hi Wonder, I pulsed turbo about 10 times, checking after each one.
I also experimented with cooking them on a wire rack and on a silicone sheet to see which would result in a crispier coating...silicone won (and was less messy). I still need to work on getting a real "crunch" though...maybe more oil & less buttermilk next time.

PAP, I have a dairy intolerant DD too, I used soy milk, thickened with a bit of potato flakes. (Not too many tho, I just had some in the pantry so used them up.) Worked well. Hope that helps.  :)

that is a good idea ..... we have only beeh dealing with the GF and LI for a few weeks .... so it is still a bit new to us .... but not too much of a drama cause we eat alot of fresh fruit, meat and veg most meals anyway.

but i like the idea of the potatoe flakes to thicken ....thanks Astarra

I make chicken nuggets from Annabel Karmel which is a similar method to this and it always gets great comments when I cook them for kids parties. 

In the Annabel Karmel recipe you marinate the chicken in milk, lemon juice, garlic and thyme for 4 hours or overnight (in the fridge).  The coating uses Rice Krispies (Rice Bubbles) and grated parmesan which would be easy to add into the thermomix.   She suggests adding a teaspoon of oil to the coating mix, then you can oven bake the nuggets (or I shallow fry).

Also can vary marinade to use oregano/thyme and paprika, cayenne or tabasco.  Hope this gives someone ideas of flavour variations.

I should imagine they would be nice with the rice bubbles.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Do you think whey could be used in place of the buttermilk?

Not sure. Would it be too thin and perhaps not have the taste? Hopefully someone else will have a better idea.
