I would still dip in BBQ sauce... that's right, BBQ!! :-)

Looks delicious.

The way i seasoned the breader you don't need sauce  ;D

A dash of seasoned salt and some hot sauce sounds good to me.

They certainly came out looking better than they started. No more little tongue look. Nice looking fingers Rick.

Here's a problem I have been having lately:  Anytime i make chicken or pork with breading the breading never sticks to the meat.  I have tried letting the meat soak in milk for at least an hour.  I have tried different batters.  But no matter what I do the breading never sticks.  What gives?

BTW- the chicken looks great.

Whip 3 to 4 eggs with buttermilk. Mix good add meat and let sit in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.

Here is how i batter.

Buttermilk/egg/meat in the bowl-----------dry batter-----------hot oil

Left hand does the wet and into the dry, right hand does the dry to oil.

Then you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, that's what it's all about.

I havent used buttermilk but have I do put 1 egg in the milk mixture.  Maybe I need more eggs???  I have tried it so many different ways.  I have used beer, bread crumbs, corn meal.  I am usually pan frying the meat and everything looks good until I cut into it and it falls apart.   ???

Care to give out your dry batter recipe?
