Update 3/14/11: I can't believe I commented before but didn't rate this recipe. This has become our GO-TO "fried chicken" dinner. It's my 11 YO DD's favorite dinner. In fact, I made this when one of her friends was over and he begged his mom to get the recipe from me! ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Quite possibly the best oven fried chicken I've ever made!! The secret is definitely in the sour cream dipping sauce, although I subbed non-fat plain yogurt for the sour cream b/c it's what I had. Used a cut-up fryer (skin off), and it was flavorful and crispy. A couple tricks: I baked the chicken on wire racks in a shallow baking pan (no oil). This allows air to circulate around the chicken so it doesn't get soggy on the bottom. I also sprayed the chicken with cooking spray before I put it in 400* oven, baked a half-hour, turned the chicken and sprayed again.
