This chicken was so moist and yummy and it made the house smell terrific!
Cooking spray, for baking sheet
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup buttermilk (shake first)
1 teaspoon hot-pepper sauce
Salt and pepper
Â¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese (2 Â½ ounces)
1 teaspoon dried thyme
4 pounds chicken parts, rinsed and patted dry
Preheat oven to 400Â°.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir together buttermilk, hot-pepper sauce, Â¾ teaspoon salt, and Â½ teaspoon pepper.
In a separate bowl, mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan, thyme, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
Place the chicken in the buttermilk mixture, turning to coat evenly. Working with one piece at a time, remove chicken from buttermilk, letting excess drip back into bowl; dredge in the breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat evenly. Place coated chicken pieces on prepared baking sheet leaving space between each piece of chicken so it can cook evenly.
Bake until chicken is golden brown, about 35 minutes.
We had this with green beans with lemon and butter and buttermilk biscuits.
