i made this up tonight while finding a use for chicken and trying to use up the buttermilk in my fridge. it tasted fantastic – chicken was super juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. the kids loved it.

Buttermilk Baked Chicken
1 cup buttermilk
3 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken
2 cups breadcrumbs
1/3 c grated Parmesan cheese

Mix the buttermilk, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a non-reactive bowl. Marinate the chicken for at least one hour.  Mix breadcrumbs and cheese on a plate. Remove chicken from marinade, letting excess marinade drip off. Dredge each piece in the crumbs and transfer to baking sheet. Bake at 350-400 until chicken is cooked through.  (I sliced the chicken in half lengthwise to make 4 thin, long breasts and it cooked in about 25 minutes.)
