Ingredients
  • 2 pounds chicken breast, pounded thin and cut into tenders
  • 1 Cup buttermilk
  • 1½ cup Panko Bread crumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder or granules
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Sauce
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1 Tbs white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (you can add more if you like it spicy, we do)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lghtly grease baking pan. Soak the chicken in buttermilk (I prep mine the day before and let it sit in the buttermilk overnight but half an hour will work). Mix the together the panko, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl. Remove chicken from buttermilk one at a time, let buttermilk drip off, press into panko mixture until well coated with crumbs. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Turn each piece of chicken over and bake for another 10 minutes.
  2. While chicken bakes prepare sauce, use a food processor or I use my hand immersion blender in a sauce pan to whip the sauce ingredients together. Simmer to meld flavors.
  3. When chicken is done, dip each piece into the sauce, return to baking pan and bake another 5 minutes, let rest for a minute. Serve over rice or noodles if you prefer.
Notes
I typically have the brown rice already made as it takes 45 minutes if done in a sauce pan or 20 minutes in a pressure cooker. I add chicken broth instead of water and a drop or two of sesame oil to cook the rice in and give it a bit of more flavor and the sauce in this recipe is fabulous on it too.
