Serves: 5

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.

    This really is a family favorite, we eat it often during the colder months. I know Mom used to make this recipe after I had grown up and moved out on my own, but she dredged the chicken on plates instead of using baggies. I remember the time I was visiting her and she told me she had found this great recipe that tasted just like Kentucky Fried chicken and she showed it to me and I laughed and said, “Oh, I make it too!”
