4 bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks, or a mix)
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup breadcrumbs (seasoned or plain)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cooking spray


1. Marinate in Buttermilk: Begin by marinating your chicken pieces in a bowl of buttermilk for at least 30 minutes. This step ensures the chicken stays juicy and flavorful during the baking process.

2. Prepare Breadcrumb Mixture: In another bowl, combine breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a seasoned coating.

3 .Coat the Chicken: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Remove each chicken piece from the buttermilk, allowing any excess to drip off. Coat each piece thoroughly with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

4. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the coated chicken pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a wire rack. This ensures even baking and allows air circulation for optimal crispiness.
