Milk and Tabasco sauce create a spicy buttermilk marinade.


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp Tabasco sauce, or more to taste
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 cup plain panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Combine milk and Tabasco sauce in a bowl; the vinegar in the Tabasco sauce will make the milk into a thick buttermilk. Add chicken and let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  • Combine bread crumbs and dry seasonings in a bowl and bread chicken. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle extra crumbs on top of chicken.
  • Bake chicken for 3045 minutes or until chicken is firm, browned, and has an internal temperature of 165F.
