The bread coating on the chicken worked out well; however, we found that it could use some more taste. I would recommend doubling the amount of all the spices and leaving everything else the same.

This is a keeper. We aren't big fans of cornmeal, however, we like the combination with the breadcrumbs. I agree the crumbs could be reduced &/or spices increased abit. Buttermilk is always a great marinade... even better when you add the hot sauce. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.

I made this recipe using boneless chicken breasts and used them atop a hearty dinner salad. With the combination of hot sauce in the buttermilk and the seasoned coating these offered a tasty zip to the dish. Admittedly, I was generous with the hot sauce and added a 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder to coat. Since my chicken pieces were quite small I reduced the total cooking time to 16 minutes. Thanks Redsie.
