I came up with this recipe not too long ago, and I just love it. Every time I've made it, I've used a different seasoning mix -- which is why I've called it "Your Way". I recommend serving it with roasted potatoes (get them in the oven before you even start breading the chicken) -- toss raw potato chunks with olive oil, kosher salt and the same spice blend you use with the chicken (roast for about 45 minutes). Yum!

Super easy recipe and the chicken was very moist. Instead of cutting up chicken breasts, I used chicken tenders and left them whole. They were done in 20 minutes. Also used Italian seasoning and let the tenders sit in the buttermilk seasoning for several hours.
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon all purpose Greek seasoning (see instructions, any spice blend can be used)
- 1 1⁄2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1⁄2 cup dry breadcrumbs (unseasoned)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese (freshly grated is best)
Directions See How It's Made
- This recipe is called Your Way because you can use any spice blend you want for seasoning; McCormicks Greek Seasoning is excellent, as is Emeril's Essence; make your own up if you want.
- In a flat dish like a pie plate, combine buttermilk and spice blend.
- Or, if making this up early in the day, combine in a large ziploc bag instead, so chicken can marinate for a few hours in the fridge.
- Combine breadcrumbs, salt and parmesan in another flat dish; set aside if you want chicken to marinate in fridge for a few hours.
- Cut chicken breasts into large chunks.
- If you are making this up early in the day, place chicken pieces into the ziploc bag along with the buttermilk mixture and close bag tightly; make sure all pieces of chicken are coated with buttermilk mixture; let sit in fridge until ready to coat.
- If you don't have time for this, just dip chicken chunks into buttermilk mixture, making sure pieces are thoroughly coated.
- Preheat oven to 400F; have ready a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lined with parchment paper.
- After chicken is coated with buttermilk mixture, dredge in breadcrumb mixture thoroughly, then place on prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is just cooked through.
