A favorite recipe that I still refer to is the Oven-Fried Chicken. I love fried chicken but I don’t enjoy standing over the stove cooking it. This recipe has the flavor of a true fried chicken but with the simplicity of baking in the oven.
1/4 cup shortening or salad oil
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 tablespoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds chicken pieces
- Heat oven to 425 degrees. In oven melt shortening in baking pan.
- Mix flour, salt, paprika, pepper in plastic or paper bag; shake chicken, 2 or 3 pieces at a time in bag until coated.
- Place chicken skin side down in pan.
- Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Turn chicken, bake until tender, 15 to 30 minutes longer.
- 2 Servings.
