  1. Add chicken to gallon bag with zip top and pour in the buttermilk and salt. Toss well and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 425. Line baking sheet with parchment. Add cornflakes, flour, thyme and salt to flat based medium bowl. Stir well. Remove the chicken from buttermilk mixture and dredge through the cornflake mix. Press gently to coat well. Place on baking sheet. Lightly brush the chicken with olive oil. Cook in oven for 15-20 minutes and then turn the chicken and cook for the remaining 10-15 minutes. In a small pot add the butter, honey, cayenne, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder and salt. Let it melt thoroughly. Once chicken is out drizzle hot honey on it. I let it sit for about 5 minutes and serve.

Restaurant Outing: The Zipper

The Zipper is an indoor/outdoor food cart located on 2705 NE Sandy Blvd in Portland.  Inside there is an assortment of foods,  We sampled Basilisk which had these scrumptious chicken sandwiches.   They were moist and the fries were just the way we like them.   The other restaurants included pizza, full bar, middle eastern, and one that had banana pudding.  ( we sampled that too.)

We like the whole layout of this.  It was kid friendly, if you want to sit outside pet friendly.   It was warm and welcoming.  Definitely going back.
