  1. Buttermilk makes a great marinade for fried chicken, including oven-fried chicken (which is what I make). There are some good recipes on Epicurious.

      I use it to make Nigella Lawson's "Ritzy chicken nuggets," which can be baked or fried. I use panko instead of ritz crackers and thigh meat instead of breast though.

      I also make ranch dressing or a buttermilk blue cheese dressing.

    2. I've found some good suggestions in the threads here on leftover or extra buttermilk:

        This Lemon Kefir ice cream recipe is absolutely wonderful. I couldn't find Kefir around where I live and substituted buttermilk with very happy results. It is cool, tangy, slightly crystaline, and very refreshing.

      2. buttermilk pie is delicious

        1. Chicken and Biscuits. Marinate the chicken parts in buttermilk for an hour or four, and, and follow your favorite coating recipe after that. Use the remaining one cup to make buttermilk biscuits, which can be made from scratch easily. A classic.

          Tyler Florence has a great fried chicken recipe on the FoodNetwork web site.

          1. Freeze it, buttermilk freezes well for future use.

              I do this a lot.
              I keep have some used apple sauce containers and they're about a half cup each. I measure out the half cup, freeze then bag them. I can then take it out a half cup at a time.

                It also keeps in the fridge well beyond the best-before date.
