Deep fried chicken

As many of you know/remember I keep kosher. No chicken and dairy thus can be mixed in cooking. The good old recipe for deep fried chicken, or at least the all the recipes I have sen, call for soaking chicken in buttermilk. This is my Substitution question. What can I use instead of buttermilk?

I would suggest a brine of some kind.

Yes, but what brine would imitate the buttermilk?

Charlie, you should be able to sub a non-dairy plain yogurt (such as soy) for the buttermilk, just thin it with a little water. I think most supermarkets carry at least one brand or another.

Are eggs considered dairy? Or are chicken and eggs together not allowed? If not, mayonnaise might make a good substitute.

Dairy is a product of the mammary gland of mammals. Basically, it refers to milk and anything made from milk, like cheese, butter and yogurt. And eggs are not made from milk.

I'm not familiar with the rules for a Kosher diet, so, maybe eggs aren't allowed either.

Eggs aren't dairy - I don't know either if they could be combined with poultry while still keeping kosher.
