what to make with 1c buttermilk?

I made my own butter today (!! yay !!) and now I have 1c of fresh buttermilk left over. I don't really want to make pancakes. Anyone have a good recipe that uses buttermilk??

Re: what to make with 1c buttermilk?

I haven't tried this out yet, but it sounds awesome (and kid friendly!) Although, I doubt I'll make the balsamic sauce to dip them in. My kids aren't too fond of balsamic vinegar, unfortunately.

Cruncy Parmesan Chicken Tenders

4 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders (about 18)
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan
3/4 cup Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.

Brush 1 tablespoon of oil over each of 2 heavy large lined baking sheets. Place the buttermilk in a large bowl. Add the chicken tenders and stir to coat. Let stand at least 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mash the garlic with the salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in the vinegar and then the remaining 1/2 cup of oil. Season the vinaigrette, to taste, with pepper. Transfer the vinaigrette to a small serving bowl.

Stir the Parmesan and bread crumbs in a pie dish. Remove the chicken tenders from the buttermilk and dredge them in the bread crumb mixture to coat completely, pressing to adhere. Arrange the coated chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheets, spacing evenly. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over the chicken tenders and bake until they are cooked through and golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Transfer the chicken tenders to a platter and serve the vinaigrette alongside for dipping.

I don't know if you visit The Pioneer Woman, but she's has the best recipes. Here's one for Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze that is just to die for and it uses 1 cup of buttermilk.
