Amish Oven-Fried Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

This is a great way to "fry" that chicken without all of the splatter on top of the stove. A good recipe, and I think it is good cold too.

This is wonderful. Tender, moist, browns nicely and has great flavor, also, it is quick and easy. I did use only a dash of pepper in place of the 2 tsp., only due to the fact I don't like pepper. This will be a definite repeat.
