Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • One 3½- to 4-pound whole chicken, cut into 10 pieces
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the buttermilk, hot sauce and 1 teaspoon each of the garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  3. Put the breadcrumbs, paprika, cayenne and the remaining teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder and salt in a large resealable plastic bag; shake to combine. Remove the chicken from the brine and add it to the bag. Seal the bag and shake vigorously to coat the chicken.
  4. Line a baking sheet with a rack and spray well with nonstick spray. Arrange the chicken on the rack, skin-side up, and spray the chicken very generously.
  5. Bake until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 40 minutes.
