3 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with foil and spray foil with nonstick spray.
  2. 2 Combine buttermilk, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large zip-close plastic bag; add chicken. Squeeze out air and seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 3 hours or up to overnight.
  3. 3 Mix together panko, Parmesan, paprika, sage, rosemary, remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in shallow dish.
