Kosher salt and black pepper

3 tablespoons grated Parmesan

Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and a pinch each of salt and black pepper in a shallow dish. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk mixture, letting the excess drip off, and dredge in the breadcrumb mixture until evenly coated. Lay the pieces flat on a nonstick baking sheet and refrigerate, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the chicken until just cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
