My kind of gal. Daft!!! Just like me. I love to do things to people that make them stop and think. Nothing that will hurt them, just make them think. Like sometimes I will be 'backing talkwards' and 'wixing the mords up' in the middle of a sentence. They get a look on their face that says, "Did I just hear right? Did she speak a foreign language. Or does she have a speech impediment? Should I ask her about it? If it is a speech impediment, will her feeliing be hurt? " So the end up saying nothing and walk away confused. It does give them something to think about for a while.

gravy queen, i really like the idea of partially frying, then baking to finish buttermilk fried chicken.

i've made southern fried chicken a few times and the trick seems to be cooking the big breasts first at a slightly lower temp because they take longer, then frying the smaller legs and thighs. again, it's all about the temp of the oil so as to have the chicken cook through without burning the coating.

but finishing everything in the oven together might be the way to go.

thanks for the tip.

I am still researching ... I just looked at the product that you recommended as well ...

I shall have more time at the weekend to organise and sort all --- I appreciate all your assistance, suggestions and time.

Thanks again.
Have a lovely evening.

Margi,

I place 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar into a measuring cup and fill it up with milk until it reaches one cup. Let it sit for five minutes.

King Arthur Dried Buttermilk

Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen,

My older daughter Naia and her husband Daniel who reside six months of the year on the northern Florida coast, close to St. Augustine, have recommended a dried Buttermilk product from a company called King Arthur, which also produces flour products ...

She told me, that it is a good pair for my needs to make Gravy Queenīs Fried Chicken. They ordered it to be sent to them, and then, my older daughter shall Federal Express or DHL it to me ...

So, thanks again, and I shall let you know the results of my 1st Fried Chicken in Buttermilk.

Another alternative recommended by Merlot on D.C. and a friend on another Forum, was to combine:

White wine vinegar & Milk ...

So, I believe I am going to wait for these dried Buttermilk packets ...

Kindest Regards.
Margi. Cintrano.

Whoopee! Shall look forward to the results. Dont forget to give your chicken a good overnight soaking in the buttermilk.

I used a mix of chicken thighs and drumsticks, fairly even in size. We don't really get big breasts here.............

I like to use thighs as they are juicy.
