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.

  1. Place oil and butter in a shallow cooking pan and place in 375ºF oven to melt butter, set aside.
  2. In a large paper sack, combine dry ingredients.
  3. Roll the chicken pieces, 3 at a time, in butter and oil then drop into a sack and shake to cover.
  4. Place on a plate until all pieces are coated.
  5. Leave any excess butter and oil in pan.
  6. Place chicken in the pan skin side down (or its just as good if you remove all the skin first).
  7. Bake at 375ºF for 45 minutes.
  8. Turn chicken pieces over and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until crust begins to bubble.

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.

This was pretty good, but I found that there was too much butter/oil for my tastes. Next time, I will halve the butter/oil and see how it goes.

Hey, Miss Annie! Your recipe has just saved me from the drudgery of frying chicken. We love fried chicken, but I hate fixing it cause it's just so messy and seems to take forever. I had given in to the fact that Popeye's and Church's make better fried chicken than I do anyway...LOL! We love your version of oven "fried" chicken. Thanks bunches from one Texan to another!!
