"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup unflavored yogurt
2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
2 teaspoon hot sauce
2 teaspoon dried tarragon, 1 tsp chopped, if fresh
2 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoon salt
1 (2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into serving pieces or 4 to 6 breast halves

cooking spray
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plain oatmeal

For the marinade:

In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, yogurt, mustard, hot sauce, tarragon, paprika, and salt. Put the chicken in a heavy re-sealable plastic bag or a baking pan large enough to hold the pieces in one layer and pour the buttermilk over it. Seal the bag or cover the pan with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for about 8 hours.

For the breading:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Grease a baking pan large enough to hold the chicken pieces in 1 layer.

Place the flour and oatmeal in a brown paper bag. One piece at a time, place the chicken in the bag and shake until coated. Place the pieces skin side down in the prepared baking dish. Continue until all the pieces are covered in the flour mixture. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is golden brown.
