Combine buttermilk and garlic. In a resealable plastic bag, soak the chicken in the buttermilk mixture for 30 minutes (or up to 12 hours).
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Italian herbs, salt and pepper. Remove the chicken pieces and coat them evenly with the breadcrumb mixture.
Drizzle with EVOO; place chicken pieces on a parchment-lined sheet and bake at 425° until the crust is crisp and the meat is cooked, 45 minutes.
