Ingredients

    - 2 cups buttermilk
    - 4 tsp fresh thyme
    - 2 tsp smoked paprika
    - 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    - 2 cups dry fine breadcrumbs (I used rye bread and made my own)
    - 4 tbsps grated Parmesan Cheese
    - 2 tsp PC Blue Menu Roasted Garlic Seasoning Blend
    - 1.2 kgs of boneless, skinless chicken breast (8 portions)

Tips

This recipe is from the Heart & Stroke Foundation website and was for drumsticks but I used breasts instead.


Directions

1. Place breasts in a large, resealable bag and add the buttermilk, paprika, thyme and pepper. Seal bag and move around to coat chicken. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.

2. In another bag or bowl, combine breadcrumbs, cheese and seasoning. Add breasts one at a time and shake to coat evenly. Place on a greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining breasts.

3. Bake in preheated oven at 400 F for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and juices run clear.

Serving Size: Makes 8 servings.
