REALLY, You people need to stop taking old favorite southern recipes and messing them up by adding corn meal where NO southern cook would use it. FLOUR ONLY for dredging these meats!!!!! Buttermilk chicken is a southern recipe as old as the hills, but there is NO cornmeal used unless you are going to make corn bread!!!
