This is the perfect Chicken for a busy week night. The Italian Buttermilk Chicken is finger-licking awesome and kids just love it.
The Chicken goes just as well with mashed potatoes and veggies, if you’d rather have it that way. The Paprika not only gives the Chicken a delicious taste, but it also gives the Chicken Fingers a lovely rich, dark color, unlike some batter covered fried chicken or fish.
Speaking of fish – this recipe is great to use with firm white fish fingers, or even larger pieces !
