Oven Fried Chicken
3 pounds chicken, cut up
1 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup Bisquick® baking mix or instant mashed potato flakes
1 ½ teaspoons paprika
1 ¼ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 425°
Rinse and drain chicken. Put butter in a 13ʺ x 9ʺ x 2ʺ baking dish, and put in oven to melt butter. Be careful not to burn the butter, if it burns it will ruin the entire recipe. Your really have to melt it in the oven because the pan has to be hot, too or the recipe will not come out good.
While butter is melting, put baking mix, paprika, salt and pepper into a large baggie, hold baggie closed and shake it up to mix. Check pan to see if butter is melted, if it is, remove pan from oven.
Put 2 or 3 pieces of chicken in baggie with mix and shake it to coat chicken. Place coated chicken, skin side down in melted butter. Repeat with remaining chicken.
Bake for 35 minutes. Remove pan from oven and turn the chicken pieces over. Bake another 15 minutes.
Serve with mashed potatoes, peas, cranberry sauce, gravy
This recipe is from the back of a Bisquick box back in the 1970’s. It tastes a lot like Kentucky Fried Chicken, with a lot less fat and grease.
