Healthy Southern "fried" Chicken

Recipe by Suzie

Discovered this recipe years ago in a church cookbook and have been making it ever since. The recipe calls for 2 lbs. of frying chicken cut up, but I typically make it with boneless, skinless chicken breast. The grandchildren love it. The chicken bakes up nicely-- tender, juicy, and just, plain good.

This was very good! I added more paprika. It tasted almost like shake n bake to me. Will make this again. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game 2010.
