Baked Chicken

Baked Chicken
Kind of like fried chicken but baked. This is the way I always make it now.
Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (3 lb) fryer chickens, cut into 8 pieces each
  1. In a large roasting pan (or two 9x13 pans), in a 425° oven, melt the butter or margarine.
  2. Mix flour, salt, paprika and pepper in a heavy-duty plastic bag; shake chicken pieces in the bag, a few at a time, until evenly coated.
  3. In the pan (s), place the chicken, skin side down, in the melted butter; bake 30 minutes.
  4. Turn chicken pieces and bake 15 minutes more until pieces are fork-tender.
  5. I usually make gravy from the de-greased pan juices, using some or all of the leftover flour and some chicken stock.
