Brush the chicken with the remaining oil, and bake for 20 minutes. Serve Immediately.
about this recipe

Cornmeal isn't just for muffins. Use it to make a satisfying oven-fried chicken
that will look and taste as good as the deep-fried version.
Soaking the chicken breasts in buttermilk serves three functions: it tenderizes the meat, adds flavor,
and help the cornmeal and spices to adhere. Any mix of your favorite spices would work well for the
cornmeal coating.
