Crunchy Cheesy Chicken Bits

This thing of going back to gym is hard!

Everything in my body hurts, except my hair! And when I get back home, all I want is a bath and my bed.

So I was looking for something I could prep ahead and just bake on the way back home. I remember the other day I was looking over some recipes I would like to try. And I remember myself wondering what was this wonder of buttermilk... We don't have buttermilk in Brazil. But aparently it's something amazing all around the globe! So let's give it a try.

Since we don't have it, I had to make it. And make buttermilk is really simple. It's so all over the internet, you have actively try not to learn it! And will be very hard! 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinager and let it sit for 10 minutes.

So, what to do with this? I decided to try with chicken. People say that buttermilk bathed chicken it's so moist and delicious I had to try
So How about a Cheesy Chunchy Chicken Bits?
