Moist chicken that has been soaked in buttermilk and then is pan fried to create a crispy outside - dinner perfection in my book. Soaking the chicken in the buttermilk adds flavor and ensures that the chicken stays nice and moist when its cooked. Then the almond flour adds a nice crispy coating that is reminiscent of traditional buttermilk fried chicken without all the fat.
