We use buttermilk in this classy version of an all-American feast. Simply add cooked lettuce, sourdough croutons and creamy ranch dressing.

Why use buttermilk?

Because of its slight acidity, buttermilk tenderises the chicken without becoming tough and chewy. Using buttermilk also helps the chicken go nice and flaky when you dredge it through the dry mix. 

Buttermilk is excellent for fried chicken because it a) increases the chance your chicken will come out soft and juicy and b) increases the chances of your chicken coming out crispy.
