Any other seasonings you likeI used Simply Organics Adobo
Peachy Dipping Sauce:
1/4cuppeach preservesno added sugar
1tspextra virgin olive oil
Sea salt to taste
Make the “buttermilk”, combine ingredients and let sit together for 10 minutes.
Clean chicken breasts and cut into tender sizes.
Make the buttermilk marinade by combining ingredients in a large bowl/dish to marinade the chicken in. Place chicken pieces in and make sure they’re well coated. Let sit for 30 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 375f degrees in the meantime and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper, spray with oil.
Mix the breading ingredients in a bowl well, then to a large skillet, toast the breading on the stove - 5 or so minutes on medium, watch it the whole time, until golden brown/desired color, then remove from heat and set aside on a large plate you can dredge the chicken in.
When chicken is done marinating, dredge in breading mixture one by one, patting down each side and shaking off any dry pieces of breading.
Place breaded chicken on the greased and lined baking sheet, spray with avocado/olive oil on top of the chicken and bake on 375f degrees for 15 minutes.
For more color, you can optionally broil for a couple of minutes (watch carefully to not burn).
While baking, you can make the sauce by combining all ingredients and pouring into a dipping bowl.
Let the chicken sit out of the oven for 3-4 minutes to set before lifting and serving.
This stores well in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
