I had bought a quart of buttermilk my last shopping trip (I’m lucky enough to have a local dairy that still does glass bottles) with a few ideas for its use bumping around my head. Sometimes I just see an ingredient and will grab it and let inspiration hit later. This grocery trip – they were out of my normal boneless skinless chicken breasts but had whole cut up chicken at a great price and I thought – well… that can’t be too hard to find a recipe for. Then I remembered the buttermilk – and that settled it. Fried chicken!
