Based upon the "Real Cajun Recipes" website. Not sure if its really Cajun but it is good and easy. I changed it a bit; made it better (in my opinion).
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 1⁄4 cup shortening
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon creole seasoning, Tony Chachere's
- frying chicken, cut into pieces
- 1⁄4 cup butter, for browning sauce
- Melt 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Spray a casserole dish with non-stick spray (to make clean-up easier later).
- Combine flour, salt, pepper, garlic salt, paprika, creole seasoning together.
- Coat the chicken very well in the flour mixture.
- In a skillet, melt the remaining 1/4 cup butter and lightly brown the fryer pieces.
- Place the browned chicken in a casserole dish uncovered.
- In the pan you have just browned the chicken, pour the (set aside) melted butter and shortening into the skillet and combine with the chicken drippings/butter (that was already in the pan).
- Using half of this mixture baste the chicken; use the remaining mixture half-way through the cooking time.
- Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 to 40 minutes or until done (the juices should run clear when you prick the meatiest part of the chicken with a fork).
