My Granny gave me this recipe when I was a young newlywed. I asked her to share some recipes that my Papaw had always enjoyed. I was determined to impress my new husband with delicious dinners when he arrived home after a long day's work. This is one that quickly became a favorite at our house and one that our kids LOVE. It smells absolutely heavenly when baking. You can use any part of the chicken you like. I buy packages that are drumsticks only, because our four kiddos always want that part of the chicken and this keeps the arguing at bay during dinner time at our house.
Try this recipe for oven fried chicken and it's sure to become a new favorite on your menu too.
Oven Fried Chicken
Chicken pieces of your choice
3 Tbs. oil
3 Tbs. butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Salt, pepper and paprika individual pieces of chicken, slightly rubbing in and under skin. Place flour in bag. Toss a few pieces into flour bag and shake generously to coat chicken. Repeat with remaining pieces.
Place oil and margarine in 9 x 13 pan and place in oven for 3-4 minutes to melt butter. Place chicken pieces in pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, turn chicken and bake for another 20 minutes. So easy.
