Oven Fried Chicken

Oven Fried Chicken

When my kids were growing up this was one of their favorite dinners. We’d have baked potatoes with sour cream and a vegetable along with this chicken and it was a most satisfying meal. Just last week one of my daughter’s neighborhood friends facebooked me that she had made oven fried chicken for her husband and little boy but it hadn’t tasted like she remembered mine tasting. She asked if I could share how I made mine. So here it is . . . this is one of the recipes that used to be on the back of the Bisquick Baking Mix box. BTW, my daughter’s favorite dish at her friend’s house was her mom’s Baked Ziti. I’ll have to track that recipe down!

2 T. butter or margarine
2/3 C. Bisquick baking mix
1 1/2 t. paprika
1 1/4 t. seasoning salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 chicken, cut up or 6 chicken breast halves (I use boneless and skinless breast halves0

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Place the margarine in a 13 X 9 inch pan and place in the oven until the margarine is melted.
3. Meanwhile, mix the dry ingredients in a large ziploc bag and place a couple of pieces of chicken into the bag and coat them with the mix. Repeat until all the pieces are coated.
4. Place the chicken skin side down in the pan.
5. Bake for 35 minutes. Turn pieces over and cook 15 minutes more or until done.
