Combine the chicken and buttermilk in a large resealable plastic bag. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Spread the panko on a plate.

Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and wipe off the excess. Season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper, then dredge in the panko to coat.

Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn the chicken, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and cook until crisp and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Cut into 8 pieces.
