DIRECTIONS

  • Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or wax paper.
  • Use flat side of mallet to pound chicken to an even 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Place flattened chicken and buttermilk into resealable plastic bag.
  • Seal bag and turn to coat chicken completely. Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight. Make sure to rotate once or twice.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Lightly mist a small nonstick baking sheet with olive oil spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the onion powder, paprika, black pepper, salt, and cayenne. Place crushed potato chips into a medium shallow bowl.
  • Remove one chicken breast from the buttermilk and let any excess liquid drip off.
  • Season both sides evenly with the seasoning mixture.
  • Transfer the breast to the bowl of crushed potato chips and cover completely with chips.
  • Place coated chicken on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining chicken breast. Discard any remaining marinade.
  • Lightly spray the top of both chicken breasts with olive oil spray. Bake for 4 minutes, and then carefully flip the chicken over with spatula, taking care not to remove the coating.
  • Again, lightly spray the chicken tops with olive oil spray and bake until the coating is crispy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Chicken is ready when coating is crispy and chicken is no longer pink inside.
  • Enjoy!
