Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken

Recipe by Charles Lieberman

Got it at work; it's for people prone to heartburn and acid reflux. I always liked oven-fried chicken at college, although I did go to school in New England.

This was just "ok" for us. The coating never really crisped up and was bland. The chicken itself was moist and had a good texture. I think I will play around with the coating to see what I can come up with. It was very easy to put together and it was quick to cook.
