  1. In a medium bowl, mix the buttermilk and hot sauce. Place chicken in the mixture to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 C.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, mix breadcrumbs, flour, cornflour, sugar, garlic salt, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper. Thoroughly coat the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat, and cook chicken 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.
  5. Transfer chicken to a medium baking dish, and bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
