DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk buttermilk, oil, hot pepper sauce, mustard, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in large bowl to blend well. Add onion, then chicken and turn to coat.
  • Cover, chill at least 3 hours or up to 1 day, turning chicken occasionally. I usually get a big gallon ziploc bag and place the marinade and chicken in the bag.
  • Place racks on 2 large rimmed baking sheets.
  • Whisk breadcrumbs, cheese, flour, thyme, paprika, cayenne and 1 teaspoon salt in large baking dish to blend.
  • Remove chicken from marinade, allowing, excess to drip off. Add chicken to breadcrumb mixture and turn to coat completely.
  • Arrange chicken, skin side up, on racks on baking sheets.
  • Let stand 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F Drizzle butter over chicken.
  • Place chicken in oven and bake until crisp, golden and cooked through about 50 minutes.
