Easy Oven Fried Chicken




What I like most about this recipe is that I get to enjoy all the yummy goodness of traditional fried chicken without all the guilt. Sure, this isn't super healthy but at least it is better for you than the deep fried version. The crust was crispy and the chicken was really moist. It was fantastic!

Ingredients
3 to 4 pounds chicken parts ( I used breasts, drumsticks, and thighs)
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 425°.
Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels. In a pie pan, combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with the flour mixture.
Put butter in a shallow baking pan; place in oven to melt. When butter is melted, arrange chicken in the baking pan in a single layer, skin side down. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes; turn and bake 15 minutes longer, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear. Serves 4.

  4. Sounds yummy! I like to make it with cornflakes instead of flour sometimes, just for a little extra cruch. :)
