okay, okay, so i wanted fried chicken like SO BAD yesterday, but didn’t want to go through the whole thing of frying it on the stove so i did a Google search for frying chicken in the oven and saw that you actually could do it! i know, i know, i’m SLOW, LATE, whatever, but here’s the recipe I used from cooks.com along with the outcome:
1 whole fryer, cut up
1 c. flour
1/2 stick butter
Salt & pepperRoll chicken in flour. Salt and pepper both sides. Melt butter in pan. Place chicken in pan, skin side down. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn chicken over and continue baking for 30 more minutes. Remove from oven and drain on paper towels. This makes a very crispy chicken without the oil used for frying and none of the bother.
