Directions 
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Combine first five ingredients in a large, heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag; seal bag and shake well.
2. Combine buttermilk and lemon juice. Brush both sides of chicken with buttermilk mixture. Place chicken in bag, seal and shake until chicken is well-coated.
3. Place chicken on a rack (coated with cooking spray) in a roasting pan lined with foil for easy cleanup. Sprinkle remaining breadcrumb mixture over chicken. Bake uncovered for 25-35 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
