Another recipe found in my Land O Lakes Cookbook. The tang of buttermilk and the flavor of herbs blend together for a well-seasoned fried chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all coating ingredients in 9-inch pie pan. Dip chicken in buttermilk, then in coating mixture.
  2. Melt butter in 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add chicken. Cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until chicken is golden brown and fork tender (20 to 25 minutes).
  3. Buttermilk Substitute: Use 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1/3 cup. Let stand 10 minutes.
  4. TIP: If chicken breasts are too thick, pound them to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet.
  5. TIP: Reduce heat if chicken browns too quickly.
