I have a few questions about this technique. I heard that its suppose to make your chicken meat tender and juicer when you fry it, and it also helps to let the flavor of your seasoning soak into the meat better. 

Has anyone actual personally tried this and how did it turn out?

I just searched for this. It's supposed to make the chicken tender and help the spices penetrate the meat. They suggest 8 hrs or overnight. I guess it works as a marinade. I will have to experiment. I'm going grocery shopping and will have to try it out.

Thank you so much for the information! Sorry I didn't post back quick enough, but let me know how it turns out. I am curious as well and want to try it out for myself.

i've done it before. made chicken strips. it was fan-frickin-tastic. all the flavor spices come through. it was juicy as heck...had to be good my mom now wants me to make her some. lol.

really good for double breading too. i used the rachael ray method.

kids(meat) in the pool(buttermilk) dry them off(flour and spices mixed together) and repeat.

shes silly but thats how i remembered which goes where.

The acidity in buttermilk causes the meat to break down, which makes it more tender.  '

Overnight is good, two nights is great!

I have.  I used a buttermilk, hot sauce, and cajun seasoning mixture and it turned out great.
