So it is officially that time of year for us Southern Cali folks....we are melting! Yes we have perfect weather 95% of the year, but the other 5% is spent HOT with no relief to be found! Today we were able to find some relief, away from our house. We went to Macy's and made a final decision on our new sofa, FINALLY! It was a tough choice, but I am excited about it. Then we went to the movie. We saw a documentary by our friend Brandon Vedder called La Source. It was incredible! If you are in LA it is only playing a few more days, click here for info.
I had some bone in chicken left over from the Mango Chicken dish so I made Martha Stewart's Baked Buttermilk Chicken recipe. I used to make this before we were married when I lived alone and had forgotten about it. I have altered it a bit, but it is still delicious!
Buttermilk Baked Chicken
1 cup buttermilk
6 pieces bone in chicken (wings, thighs, drum sticks)
1 tsp paprika (I only had smoked but regular would be better)
1 tsp ground mustard
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 Tbsp oil
Mix buttermilk with paprika and ground mustard. Place buttermilk and chicken in a bag to marinate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 375. (This is why I will not be making this dish again until we cool off.)
Mix panko, parmesan and seasoning salt in a shallow dish.
Rub 1 Tbsp of oil in the bottom of a baking dish. Remove chicken from buttermilk and dredge into breadcrumb mixture until completely coated on all sides.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Remove and serve with mashed potatoes and broccoli, YUM!
