  • 3 pounds chicken breasts and drum sticks, cut into 1-2” strips
  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 4 cups cornflakes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • Sea salt, to taste



Step 1

Rinse chicken, then pat dry with paper towels and arrange in a 9x13” glass baking dish. Add buttermilk, making sure all chicken pieces are well coated (add more if needed). Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours and up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 400°F. In a re-sealable plastic bag, combine corn flakes, lemon pepper, oregano, basil and sea salt. Seal bag, then crush mixture. Empty into a mixing bowl.
Working one piece at a time, remove chicken from buttermilk, let excess drip off, then dip into crumb mixture and coat both sides well. Bake until crisp and cooked through, about 35-40 minutes. Serve with barbecue sauce and steamed greens.
