  1. Place chicken pieces, buttermilk, bay leaves, garlic, salt, and black pepper into a large resealable plastic bag and knead bag several times to mix buttermilk and seasonings with chicken. Squeeze air from the bag, seal, and refrigerate at least 2 hours (up to overnight) to marinate.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place a wire cooking rack into a roasting pan.
  3. Drain marinade from bag and discard bay leaves. Mix Parmesan cheese, flour, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Add Parmesan cheese mixture to chicken in the bag, close the bag, and shake to thoroughly coat chicken pieces with the mixture.
  4. Whisk egg and water in a shallow bowl. Place potato flakes into a separate shallow bowl. Dip floured chicken pieces in egg mixture; roll pieces in potato flakes to thoroughly coat. Arrange the chicken pieces on wire rack.
  5. Bake chicken for 15 minutes and turn pieces over on rack; continue baking until chicken is no longer pink inside and coating is browned and crisp, 15 to 20 more minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For variation you can use flavored potato flakes; just be mindful of saltiness of the flakes combined with the Parmesan.

This was not as good as we had hoped. Followed the recipe exactly. The potato coating, while creative, did not turn out well. Very disappointed.

I didn't have time to make the marinade, so I just did the second part of this recipe and it turned out great! I used boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts which I prefer because they are ...

Super easy to make and the family loved it!!!

Used skinless, boneless thighs. Panko instead of potato flakes. Tasted great. Liked the heat from the cayenne pepper. Could use 1/4 tsp and still be good. Spray the rack and pan for easy clean...

Very tasty. Came out nice and crispy. A little labor intensive, but not bad. Would make again.
