Ingredients:  
1 cup buttermilk, divided
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2" chunks
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup plus 2 Tblsp flour, divided
1 tsp coarsely ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup corn or canola oil
1 cup chicken broth

Directions:
Directions:
Pour 1/2 cup buttermilk into shallow baking dish just large enough to hold the chicken. Use your hand to flatten the chicken to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch. Dip chicken in buttermilk turning to coat completely. In another shallow dish, combine cornmeal, 1/4 cup flour, pepper and salt. Dredge chicken in cornmeal, patting the mixture to coat the chicken all over. In a large skillet, heat oil. Panfry chicken chunks over medium-high heat, turning once, until it is cooked through and the coating is dark golden brown, about 8 minutes total. Transfer chicken to plate. Stir 2 Tblsp flour into pan drippings and cook, stirring constantly until flour paste takes on a golden color about 2 minutes. Whisk in broth and remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk. Cook, stirring up browned bits on the bottom of the pan, until gravy is bubbly. Reduce the heat to medium low and continue to cook,stirring 2 minutes. Season gravy with hot pepper sauce (if preferred), and salt and pepper. Serve the chicken with the gravy ladled over it.
