Stephenson's Restaurant was a Kansas City favorite until it closed it's doors in the late 90's. I recently purchased an original receipt recipe book with all of the restaurants favorite dishes. If you lived in Kansas City you have no doubt visited this restaurant. I am glad I am able to bring this recipe for you to enjoy.
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
- 1 cut-up frying chicken
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups hot water
- Dip chicken into water. Coat with mixture of flour and seasonings. Put skin side up into 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Dot with butter. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes (or until golden brown). Remove from oven. Mix 1/2 cup Nonfat Dry Milk Powder with 1 1/2 cups hot water. Pour milk around chicken. Cover with aluminum foil. Return to oven and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
I am lucky enough to have eaten this at Stephenson's.... and luckier to have married one of their cooks (he worked there though college). This IS the recipe. It is wonderful. I substitute with real milk- because I just prefer working with real ingredients as much as possible. I have made it with chicken breasts exclusively and it works out in less cooking time. Working on making it GF since gluten is now out of my diet.
This is one of my favorite recipes. I substitute cream for the powdered milk and water.<br/>Delicious
