Plan ahead and let this marinate overnight!
This is a great, healthy, and inexpensive meal that would be great for kids (and adults too)!
3 large skinless boneless chicken breasts (or enough so you’ll have 10-12 fingers – you can adjust according to your needs)
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon dried thyme ( less if ground)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning (adjust the quantity depending on the seasoning you have)
Cut the chicken into finger sized pieces (e.g. cut each thigh half). Combine the buttermilk, thyme, cayenne, and garlic powder and marinate the chicken in the milk for 4 hours or overnight.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400F.
Mix the panko crumbs with the all-purpose seasoning. Without rinsing the chicken, dredge it in the beaten egg, then the panko crumb mixture. Place the breaded chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spray chicken with a little non-stick spray.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until coating is crispy and juices run clear.
Sprinkle with parsley to add some colour. Serve with homemade fries and a green salad or coleslaw.
