From Marcia Adams' Cooking From Quilt Country. This is an excellent oven baked fried chicken; nicely seasoned, easy and takes you back to when you didn't care about fat content, calories or protein counts. The drippings make for very yummy gravy, too!

  1. Place the oil and butter in a shallow cooking pan (I use a sided cookie sheet or the broiler pan) and put in preheated 375 degree oven to melt. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl or plastic bag, combine flour and seasonings. Mix well.
  3. Roll the chicken pieces, a few at a time, in the oil/butter mixture and then drudge in flour mixture.
  4. Place coated chicken pieces into pan, skin side down.
  5. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Turn over the chicken pieces and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until top crust is bubbly.
  6. Serve hot or cold.
