Buttermilk substitute?

sue | May 3, 2006 02:39 PM

I know that I can add vinegar or lemon juice to milk as a substitute for buttermilk. If I need a non-dairy "buttermilk", (for crispy fried chicken) would it be better to use soy milk with the lemon juice or vinegar, or should I use coconut milk, or neither?
I guess what I'm asking is what about the buttermilk makes the chicken so yummy , and how can I come close to replicating that, without dairy? Thanks
