hey quick note, thanks for stopping by Backyard Foodie, Can I ask you for a quick favor, Can you click "follow" up top. I really would appreciate it.
So my wife requested I make this the other night. We used to pick up the take-out chicken; you know the one in the bucket, but w/ all the grease it started to make us sick when we ate it. Here's a guilt-less way to enjoy grandma's fried chicken and still get that crunch.
The key is the Japanese Panko Bread crumbs. They're unseasoned and made from real bread. I like this alot b/c you can control the flavor and sodium content. For this particular night, I put dried rosemary, parsley, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
Preheat oven to 350, then lock your door, cuz your friends will come over to eat all of it.
8 chicken thighs skin-optional; leaving the skin on gives the extra crunch. It also works well w/ out the skin. I'm a big fan of thighs. [twss]
2 cups of panko bread crumbs
1 tbs of each rosemary and parsley
1 tsp kosher salt
10 grinds from the pepper mill
2 cups of buttermilk
Best w/ mac & cheese, sweatpants and side of Air conditioning. Enjoy. Comment below and thank you for reading.
