Buttermilk Cereal Chicken

Pin It
Some of you might notice that I have being "working hard" on my experiments(more recipes HERE) with the Happy Call Pressure Pan(HCP). By the look of the photo above, could you believe those golden and crispy drumlets are NEITHER deep-fried or oven baked!

Yes, for your information these yummy Buttermilk Cereal Chicken is done using HCP without deep-frying or bake. With just minimum amount of oil to grease the pan, you would be able to prepare more healthy and delicious food for the family. In this post, I would be sharing the recipe for this Buttermilk Cereal Chicken using HCP and Oven.

Above shows the comparison of Buttermilk Cereal Chicken done using Happy Call Pressure Pan (HCP) via  Oven Toaster base on the recipes shown below.


BUTTERMILK CEREAL CHICKEN
(Using Happy Call Pan Method)


Look at these golden drumlets with yummy cornflakes coating, isn't it make you crave for some upon looking at it now? These super easy finger food would be something worth trying during weekend if you have some "stock-up" cornflakes in the pantry. And I assure you this definitely taste better than those deep-fried chicken from those fastfood restaurants.


(serves: 2-3 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
6 Chicken Drumlets
1.5 Cups Cornflakes
1 Teaspoons Ground Paprika
1 Teaspoons Grated Lemon Rind
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup Plain Flour
3/4 Cup Buttermilk
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Some Salad Greens, to serve


Method:-
1. Using your hands gently crush cornflakes into crumbs, add in paprika, lemon rinds, pepper, salt and stir until well combined.

2. Place flour and buttermilk in separate shallow dishes. Coat chicken drumlets one at a time with flour, shaking off excess before dipping in buttermilk.

4. While the drumlets are still moist (this will enable the cornflake crumbs to cling), coat it one at time in cornflakes mixture, pressing on with fingertips to secure the crumbs.

5. Place drumlets on preheated HCP (light brush the pan with cooking oil and preheat on low heat for 30 seconds) with pan lock and cook over very low heat for 5 minutes before flipping the pan over for another 5 minutes.

6. Rotate the pan a few times (cook about 20 minutes) or until golden and cooked through (leave the pan unlock for the last 5 minutes to achieve crispy outer skin). Serve with some salad greens.

Tip:-
- If you have time, marinate the chicken with some extra Ground Paprika(1 teaspoon), lemon rind and 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice for about 30 minutes.

~ You can cut a slit on the drumlets to enable the meat to cook faster.


BUTTERMILK CEREAL CHICKEN
(Oven Baked Method)


For those who don't own a Happy Call Pressure Pan, you could also try out this recipe using either Oven Toaster or normal Oven and the end-result is equally good. Just for a note, the outer skin of the chicken will remain crispy for an hour or so if use Oven baked compare to HCP which need to be consume as soon as possible.


(serves: 2-3 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 30 minutes)

Ingredients:
6 Chicken Mid-joint
1.5 Cups Cornflakes
1 Teaspoons Ground Paprika
1 Teaspoons Grated Lemon Rind
1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup Plain Flour
3/4 Cup Buttermilk
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Some Salad Greens, to serve

Method:-
1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

2. Using your hands gently crush cornflakes into crumbs, add in paprika, lemon rinds, pepper, salt and stir until well combined. Set aside.

3. Place flour and buttermilk in separate shallow dishes. Coat mid-joints one at a time with flour, shaking off excess before dipping in buttermilk.

4. While the mid-joints are still moist (this will enable the cornflake crumbs to cling), coat it one at time in cornflakes mixture, pressing on with fingertips to secure the crumbs.

5. Place mid-joint prepared tray and lightly spray/brush with cooking oil.

6. Roast for 30 minutes(turning twice) or until golden and cooked through. Serve with some salad greens.

My family loves this crispy buttermilk chicken which is so flavorsome with it's tasty, tender and juicy meat together with the crispy and hint of spiciness on the outer skin. This is sure a good finger food to be serve during parties which goes well with sparking wine or beer.

  4. the chicken looks delicious! instead of using cornflakes, do you think crushed crackers (e.g. Meiji crackers) would work also? :)

  5. Hi Ellena, this looks yummy! I'll like to try baking it! I'm not sure what is buttermilk. Is it displayed at the milk section in supermarts? And can I don't grease the wings at the end since the wings tend to ooze out oil during the baking process? Michelle

  6. Thank you for this recipe!  I have regular Kellogg's cereal that no one eats (it is triple package with two other cereals which are sweet so kids eat, but not regular one...).  This is such a wonderful idea to get rid of regular one before it becomes stale... Thanks Ellena!

  7. Hi Octopusum,

    It's ok if you ombit the paprika. if you want some spicy taste u can add pinch of chilli powder if you have. Emmm HCP is for quick cooking but it won't get the SUPER crispy and nice crumbs like oven which is similar to those deep-fried chicken :p

  9. Hi Michelle,

    Buttermilk can be found at the dairy products sections together with sour cream, milk and etc. It's ok that you omit the greasing part and i am sure it still taste great :)

    1. Hi Michelle,

      Buttermilk is located at the cheese/cream shelf at most of the major supermarket. If you can't find you can use (1 cup fresh milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice, mix together and stand for 10 mins for it to curdle)

  14. Hi Ellena, I just received my HCP last week and was browsing your website for recipes to try.

    For this buttermilk cereal chicken, can I substitude plain flour with cornflour?

    If I don't have olive oil spray, can I just put some cooking oil instead?

    1. Hi Lolandra, welcome to the HCP club :) Usually for western recipes it often use flour/egg dip/breadcrumb for deep-fried or bake dish. For this recipe I have not tried using cornflour but if you keen you can experiment it with one or two for a try :)

      Yes, you can replace olive oil to any cooking oil.

  15. Hi Ellena, i ended up using self-rising flour coz i ran out of cornflour. The result wasn't as good as yours. The skin dropped off for some of the winglets. =(

  17. Hi Ellena,
    Do you marinate the chicken with paprika, lemon rinds, pepper, salt cause I saw the top left picture, the chicken have some seasoning on the chicken but the recipe says add the seasoning in the cornflake.
