I grew up using the Oven Fry kit and thinking that egg and water was the best wash for oven baked fried chicken. TONIGHT, I learned what I was missing. Buttermilk is the secret ingredient for the moistest chicken ever. I can't wait to make it again.

How to Make Buttermilk Oven Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. This recipe is not exact amounts. Based on four pieces of chicken.
  2. Preheat oven to 400". Bake 20 minutes or until the chicken is brown and crisp. Turn over for maybe 10 minutes or until brown and crisp. Total cooking time is about 40-50 minutes depending on total chicken pieces.
  3. Take the chicken (use thighs for extra moist, but breasts are fine and leaving the bones in is fine). Take the skin off.
    Take the chicken and dip thoroughly in buttermilk. Can be left longer to absorb but literally I dipped for about 10 minutes.
    Take the panko and mix with the montreal seasoning to taste (it does get spicy but its delicious). For a little more refreshing flavor add lemon zest to brighten it up. If you want to go "more italian" add grated parmesan.
    Mix the dry ingredients until evenly seasoned.
  4. Take the buttermilk soaked chicken and dip in the panko mix thoroughly. Place on a silver cookie tray sprayed with cooking spray.

    Note, if you have extra panko mixture, add with the buttermilk, mold into a patty and bake with chicken. Its like a little extra muffin. YUM.
  5. I served this with a broccoli and cheese couches and corn, heirloom tomato, peach and onion salad and coleslaw with sour cream, mayo and cilantro. It offered some fairly serious summer flavors all on one plate.
