Buttermilk Baked Chicken

Sharing is caring!

Today I’m sharing a wonderfully simple recipe for baked chicken! I LOVE incorporating buttermilk into many of my recipes and this Buttermilk Baked Chicken is such a delicious dish!

Using Panko gives it that much needed “crunch” and the addition of  buttermilk, lemon, and parmesan cheese blend together perfectly to create a crowd pleasing recipe!

Make your “crunchy” topping of panko, garlic, parmesan cheese, and parsely.

Roll chicken breasts into the mixture- first by covering it in the buttermilk/lemon juice and then in the panko mixture.

Then melt some butter and pour it over top all the chicken and set it in the oven.
