Oven Fried Chicken {Granny's Recipe}

5:47 PM
Oven Fried Chicken is a method of cooking chicken in the oven, but taste just like fried chicken, without all the fuss it takes to fry it.

Oven Baked Chicken is another recipe from my mother's dinner table. I remember coming home from college, and she would have Oven Fried Chicken on the table, one of my very favorites.

My mother worked for a half-way house, Monday through Friday.   She cooked the noon meal, and when she came home in the evenings, she would often cook a recipe much quicker and easier to prepare than she cooked at noon.

If you want to, you can add some rosemary, thyme, and other herbs on top while baking. It gives a delicious depth of flavor.

Although My mother was such a simplistic cook and cooked with few ingredients, she always brought a lot of love to the table with her delicious dishes.

Mother would have served Oven Fried Chicken with something similar as I served, Chunky Buttered Potatoes, and Glazed Carrots.

Oven Fried Chicken
    4 chicken thighs and 4 chicken legs (or 1 whole cut up chicken)
    1/4-1/2 cup butter
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
    1-1 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Preheat oven 425 degrees F. Wash chicken thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel.

Salt and pepper chicken liberally; set aside.

Melt butter in a pie plate in the microwave on high at 30 second intervals until completely melted; set aside.

Combine together flour, salt, and pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and mix well.

Coat each piece of chicken with flour mixture and dip each peace of chicken in the melted butter on both sides.

Place in a large oblong baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with a cooking spray, skin side down.

Bake for 50-55 minutes, uncovered. Take chicken out of the oven and turn over each piece so that the chicken is skin side up.

Return to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes longer until chicken is done and golden brown. Serves 6-8.

Note: Depending on how big the chicken thighs and legs are will depend on how much butter and flour you will need, and how long to cook the chicken.

A "Little" Tidbit
I always salt and pepper my chicken before I coat it with the flour.
So the salt and pepper are in between the chicken and that delicious crust.
This way your chicken is seasoned to Perfection.
