Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Top Review by JustJanS

Claire, the only change I made was to buy chicken legs for this (personal preference). I've never used buttermilk as a marinade before, but it made the legs so juicy and tender. The crumb mixture was really yummy with just the right amount of bite. Thanks for a great recipe that I know we'll make again soon.
