This is one of the best fried, baked chicken recipes that I have tried on this food site. Thank you so much for sharing this quick and easy to make recipe. The chicken was perfection, cooked beautifully, tender, moist and oh so flavorful. I used drumsticks and thighs this time, can't wait to try this with breasts also. For the cracker crumb I used the garlic ritz. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Kudos on making it into Favorites of 2014 Cookbook. Made for Best of 2013 Tag Game.

Looked and tasted just like Fried Chicken! Used Perdue bone-in skin-on chicken thighs, which fit into my 5-quart deep frying skillet snugly. I followed Baby Kato's lead and made crumbs from 18 Garlic-Butter Ritz crackers. Will definitely make these again and again! Made for Best of 2013 tag game, based on LifeIsGood's recommendation.

This was amazing! The BEST fried chicken recipe I've ever found. The only thing I did different was double the amount of crumbs, as I went through them faster than I expected. The flavor and moisture was to DIE for. :D

Good chicken and quiet easy. It was very moist and the cooking time was spot on for bone-in thighs. If I make it again, I'll add a bit more seasoning to the crumbs. This would be great with thyme and some garlic.

I think either my cast iron pan was too hot...or I should have turned my chicken pieces sooner...they did get really dark...I served this for a family of four and we all thought that it was lacking in flavor...it needed some other type of spices other then salt and pepper...over all the technique was good and I plan to make this again with the heat lower and more spices in the crumb mixture...made for Best of 2014 tag game...=)

This was quite good, cxstitcher. Someone suggested using garlic butter Ritz. I looked for them and found a lot of different flavors of Ritz crackers, but I never found garlic butter Ritz. So I used plain Ritz and added a little garlic powder to the cracker crumbs. I didn't really taste the garlic, so I'd like to make this again when I can find the garlic butter Ritz. But even with plain Ritz, this turned out very nice.

Absolutely loved this oven-fried chicken. I used ritz cracker crumbs and all chicken thighs. They turned out sooo good. Served this chicken with some delicious roasted sweet potatoes/peaches and a salad on the side. This made a wonderful dinner and I'll definitely make this chicken again.

I made this using some chicken drumsticks. This was a very easy recipe to do, and very flavorful. I did add a pinch of poultry seasoning, since I had on hand.

Fantastic!!! I just loved the simplicity, flavor and texture of this chicken!!! I cut this way back to serve one, using one very large chicken thigh and Ritz crackers for the breading, so good!! I saw that most others added all kinds of other spices: garlic, paprika etc., to me that changes the recipe and flavor. I really enjoyed it just the way it was written and the Amish make it.

The only change I made was for dietary reasons that cracker crumbs send my blood sugars through the roof so I dried some bread and pulverised it in the food processor to get fine breadcrumbs and used that, I quartered a 1.7K chicken (taking the wings off the breast and leaving the thigh/leg intact which we call a Maryland cut) and crumbed as per recipe and fried up in the butter as specified and when going into the oven I must admit I was not going to alfoil but bake as was but I did alfoil and am so glad I did for after 30 minutes removed the alfoil and let bake for another 30 minutes and beautifully moist chicken with a nice crunch on the skin, thank you cxstitcher for a great recipe and to LifeIsGood for recommending it in the Best of 2013 tag game.
