  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk*
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon regular salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/4 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs) or fine dry bread crumbs
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried savory, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a bowl.
  2. For marinade, in a small bowl, stir together buttermilk and half of the salt. Pour over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  3. Grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. In a small bowl, combine egg and the water. In a shallow dish, mix panko, sage, thyme, savory, pepper and the remaining salt. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Dip chicken pieces, one at a time, into egg mixture; coat with crumb mixture.
  4. In prepared baking pan, arrange chicken so pieces are not touching. Sprinkle with any remaining crumb mixture.
  5. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven about 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F). Do not turn pieces while baking. Makes 4 servings.


  • * To make 1 cup sour milk, place 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1 cup liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using it in a recipe.


  • Curried Oven-Fried Chicken: Prepare as above, except substitute 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder for the sage, thyme, and savory.
