Recipe by Jessica at Good Cheap Eats
1 cup buttermilk (substitute by adding 1 Tb vinegar or lemon juice to milk let set for 5 minutes)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (made from the heels of a loaf of bread)*
1/2 teaspoon each salt, dried basil, dried oregano*
nonstick cooking spray
2 cups heated spaghetti sauce
1 pound pasta, cooked according to package directions
grated Parmesan cheese
*If you have seasoned bread crumbs you can omit the salt, basil and oregano and substitute the seasoned bread crumbs in place of the plain bread crumbs.
Preheat oven to 375°. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment. In shallow dish, combine buttermilk, garlic powder, and black pepper. Rinse chicken breasts and allow to marinade in buttermilk mixture. Meanwhile, combine bread crumbs, salt and spices. Dip chicken breasts in bread crumbs to coat. Place chicken breasts on baking sheet and spray with non-stick spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes until coating is crisp and chicken is cooked through. Juices should run clear. Serve with pasta, pouring sauce over top and sprinkling with cheese. Serve broccoli on the side.
