Baked Fried Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Rumdrinker25

This is just a variation of the way my dad used to make fried chicken. Frying at high temperature for a short period of time (just enough to brown the outside) and then baking it to finish makes for incredibly tender and juicy chicken.

This recipe was really tender and crispy, but the old bay seasoning seemed to overpower it to me, will try again but cut back on the old bay. Thanks Rumdrinker25....
