1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. thyme, divided
1 tsp. sage
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
non stick cooking spray
2 1/2 lbs. chicken pieces, skin removed
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. garlic powder

In a large bowl whisk buttermilk, garlic powder, paprika, 1 tsp. thyme, sage, salt and pepper until well blended. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 5 hours or overnight to marinate.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

3. In a large pie plate combine panko bread crumbs, flour, garlic powder and remaining 1 tsp. thyme. Remove chicken from marinade, allowing excess to drip off. Place chicken pieces one at a time into crumb mixture, pressing to coat. Turn chicken over and press crumbs onto other side. Brush off excess crumbs. Place on prepared baking sheets and let stand for 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining chicken.

4. Spray top portions of chicken with nonstick cooking spray. Bake about 50 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear, turning once and spraying with additional cooking spray halfway through baking time
