    Mrs Goodall's Note:

    I love this chicken recipe--after messing around with oil fried chicken, I found this recipe and it's exactly what I was looking for, darn close to "real" fried chicken without the hassle of oil frying. There is marinating time, but otherwise super easy. Don't be intimidated by th amount of hot pepper sauce in the marinade, the chicken will pick up only some of the heat.

    1. 1
      Whisk buttermilk, oil, hot pepper sauce, mustard, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in large bowl to blend well. Add onion, then chicken and turn to coat.
    2. 2
      Cover, chill at least 3 hours or up to 1 day, turning chicken occasionally. I usually get a big gallon ziploc bag and place the marinade and chicken in the bag.

      Place racks on 2 large rimmed baking sheets.
    4. 4
      Whisk breadcrumbs, cheese, flour, thyme, paprika, cayenne and 1 teaspoon salt in large baking dish to blend.

      Arrange chicken, skin side up, on racks on baking sheets.
    7. 7

      This is from a June 2000 Bon Appetit and I have been making it ever since I saw it in the magazine. It is excellent. To get the coating crispier, use panko bread crumbs. Excellent recipe. Thanks!

      My son refused to eat this. I started marinating it this morning. I loved coating it and letting it rest on the racks. I had never done that before and that is a neato bandido trick. I really did not like the crust. To me it was kind of like shake and bake. So, I think if I do this again, I am going to have to figure out a different coating.

      This was very good. I also used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and used spray margarine to reduce fat. I baked on a rack, and the tops got crispy but the bottoms were kinda soggy (still tasted great, however!). Next time I place directly on the baking sheet in hopes of the bottoms getting a little crispier. An easy make ahead dinner for weeknights.
