Buttermilk Baked Chicken
Nb persons: 0
|Vegetable oil, for baking sheet|
|8 slices||white bread|
|1 teaspoon||hot-pepper sauce|
|3/4 cup||grated Parmesan cheese, (2 1/2 ounces)|
|1 teaspoon||dried thyme|
|4 pounds||chicken parts, (preferably legs, thighs, and wings), rinsed and patted dry|
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously rub a baking sheet with oil. In a food processor, pulse bread until it turns into coarse crumbs.
In a large bowl, stir together buttermilk, hot-pepper sauce, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. In a separate bowl, mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan, thyme, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
Place 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. Place coated chicken pieces on prepared baking sheet.
Bake until chicken is golden brown, about 35 minutes.Note: Leave enough space between the chicken pieces so that they crisp evenly all the way around.
