2 cups panko breadcrumbs
2 tsp kosher salt
1-2 tsp herbs de provence (or whatever herbs/spices you like)
6-8 chicken thighs, skin removed*
cooking spray - olive or canola oil
heat oven to 400 degrees and place rack in upper middle position.
soak the chicken in buttermilk for 10 minutes to an hour (however much time you have). put dry ingredients in a shallow bowl. place a wire rack over a jelly roll pan lined with foil. take chicken from buttermilk and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. place chicken, meaty side up, on the wire rack. spray generously with cooking spray. bake 35-40 minutes, or until done.
*i used bone-in chicken thighs, but maybe it would work just as well with boneless?
