Crispy Lemonade Chicken

I saw this recipe on Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice and it combines some of my favorite things, panko and lemons. I changed it up a hint and it was good, it was really light and refreshing but it would have also been great over some sort of lemon pasta!

2 tbsp lemon zest
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup buttermilk
6 chicken breast**
2 cups panko
1 tbsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Mix 1 tablespoon of lemon zest with the lemon juice and buttermilk. Season chicken with salt and pepper then marinated the chicken for a few hours or overnight. Heat oven to 400. Mix together panko thyme, remaining lemon zest and cayenne. Shake together in a large plastic bag. Remove chicken from marinated and drop in the panko mixture, seal the bag and shake until covered. Repeat until all the chicken is done. Bake for 35 minutes or until chicken is done.

**The original recipe says to use bone-in skin-on chicken but I used boneless skinless and it was perfect!
