Savory Buttermilk Chicken


1-1/2 cups all-purpose white flour
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 whole chicken breasts, skinned and split
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 to 1/2 cup (1/2 to 1 stick) butter, melted


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

Mix the flour, cheese, and seasonings in a plastic bag. Dip the chicken in the buttermilk, then in the flour mixture. Arrange in a single layer in the baking pan. Drizzle the melted butter over the chicken. Bake for 50 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and bake for another 10 minutes to make the crust crispy. Do not turn the chicken while it is baking. Serve hot.
