How To Make Buttermilk Baked Chicken

Buttermilk gives tenderness and juiciness to this baked chicken recipe. This is a great dish with slaw and it's also delicious even as a leftover.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 35 minutes
Total: 45 minutes

  • 8slicewhite bread
  • 1cupbuttermilk
  • 1tsphot pepper sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • ¾cupparmesan cheese,grated
  • 1tspthyme,dried
  • 4lbchicken parts,preferably legs, thighs, and wings


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously rub a baking sheet with oil. In a food processor, pulse bread until it turns into coarse crumbs.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together buttermilk, hot-pepper sauce, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan, thyme, and pepper.

  3. Place the chicken in the buttermilk mixture, turning to coat evenly. Working with one piece at a time, remove chicken from liquid, letting excess drip back into bowl; dredge in the breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat evenly.

  4. Place coated chicken pieces on prepared baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 35 minutes, until chicken is golden-brown.
