Fried Chicken Batter Falling Off Chicken
Hi there - I'm making fried chicken. Brined in buttermilk, then rolled in a mix of chickpea flour and buttermilk and spices. I'm pan-frying it and then going to put it in the oven (using a cook's illustrated recipe) but the breading wont stay on. It's sticking to my pan. Any ideas?

It's important to let the chicken rest before frying to allow the coating to set up.
Can you clarify exactly how you incorporate the buttermilk with your chickpea flour for your "breading"?
One possible solution is that you are not using enough oil and/or that you are not allowing it too fry long enough before trying flip it. It's important to let the breading crisp up. If you try to move it too early, it will stick to your pan just like you said it is.
