I've been making Bisquick oven-fried chicken for years - love it! No mess! To make it healthier I like to use boneless skinless chicken thighs - be sure to use glass pyrex baking dish - I also add a little water - about a quarter cup after it's been cooking for a while. Also, cut both cooking times by about 5-10 minutes because it cooks quicker without the skin and bones. A lot less grease in the pan (and on your hips) but no loss of great flavor. Tonite I also added pizza pepper to the bisquick mix for more zing. Hubbie loved it!

Madt this today for a picnic tonight. It is delicious. I added some garlic powder, dried thyme, lots of pepper and used butter instead of margarine. Very tasty chicken indeed! Very easy to do. Maximum taste for mimimun effort.
