Oven Fried Chicken!

Before I share the famous chicken recipe that is so good it will make Paula Dean slap that bearded husband of hers I thought I would show you some Halloween pieces I painted years ago when I owned a Ceramic Shop.  When I say years ago I mean years ago. lol
The one above is my favorite of a witch sitting on a pumpkin holding an apple.

A ghost holding a pumpkin!

A pumpkin candy holder or I guess you could use it for a candle too. Kaci loved this and I wanted to give it to her but I knew her dad would not like it so I kept my mouth shut.  I am trying my best to behave.

Now to the chicken recipe. I had several of you ask for it so hope you enjoy it. What's great it taste like Fried Chicken but oh so easy as One two three.

First honey  melt some butter in a big baking pan. While the butter is melting then get your flour out.

You will need enough flour to of course coat the chicken pieces your using. So don't be stingy pour you out some flour. Now when I say easy as One Two Three thats all you need to put in the flour just three things. Paprika, Salt and Pepper.

After you put the spices in the flour mix this up. Now your ready to coat your chicken pieces. Dip them in the flour mixture until their all white and no skin showing. Put your pieces in the melted butter and bake at 3:50. My sister-in-law Linda who gave me this recipe said she fixes a whole chicken cut up and bakes 30 minutes on one side turns it and bakes 30 minutes on that side.

So easy even I can do this. I wonder if Aqua Man tried it yet. lol

Thanks for all your fun comments about my pool romance or the almost pool romance. lol He got lucky that we had pool police monitering our every move.

Be sure and enter my giveaways I have on my side bar. They both end soon. You especially don't want to miss Susan's. Her giveaway is lovely.  Mine will end Sunday night so please enter them both.

Hope you have a fun spooky weekend. I am going to try my best too.  My grand babies are walking Saturday for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation Walk for A Cure in Austin. I so wanted to do the walk with them but I knew I could not with my back. Maybe next year. I am so proud of them they have done a great job raising money for their this disease. Our prayers is one day soon there will be a cure. Also thank you so much for the donations you sent in to help them raise the money.

Darn I meant to tell you about the cooking class at Festival Hill. I will do it another day because it would be to long to go into now and it is way past my bed time.  lol

Your not going to believe it though the Chef's name was John....ha ha  Remember some of you said Johnny might be the Chef well it was not him but it was a John. Very interesting class.

Sweet dreams

I may have to try that chicken when the kids come home. I not only have to have the Thanksgiving meal, but meals for the entire 4 days.

I've always enjoyed Mom still has a cookie jar I did for her when I was in 7th grade! Yours are super cute..I love the witch. Thanks for the chicken recipe too. I find that most of the time simple recipes taste the best! That would be a great recipe to throw in the oven when your man comes swimming over!

Donna said...

Love the recipe that would "make Paula Deen slap that bearded man of hers"!! Ha! You have a way of writing that is probably like you talk and it is charming. I can tell you have loads of personality.
Your cereamics are just darling! Love the ghost! Your grandchildren do too, I bet. Have a great Halloween weekend, Maggie!!!

John huh? Do you think maybe the there is a John in your future? I would either be giddy or weary of every John I meet for a while. A heck you only live once on earth, grab hold and go with it. Hugs. Tammy

Arkansas Patti said...

Aw, I was hoping it would be the same John. Maybe this is a better John, he is wearing an apron after all. Aprons trump speedos.
Chicken recipe is copied and pasted---thanks.

Hi Mags:
I can't wait to try your baked chicken recipe. That man tried so hard to get your attention - and knew your name when he said "hi" - that I won't be surprised at all if he finds out who you are to contact you. In the meantime, get your water therapy sessions renewed with Workman's Comp to help the guy out!
Have a great weekend.

PS. I LOVE AR Patti's comment about the apron trumping speedos. I agree completely!!!

You Chicken recipe sounds wonderful. I've had to change it a bit to make Dr. White coat happy. I line a bakin' sheet with parchment and spray it with a little Pam Olive oil. Dip the chicken (fish, pork chops etc.) in egg whites. I coat with 1/2 flour and 1/2 toasted Italian bread crumbs, season to taste. Once I place it on the bakin' sheet I give the top side a spray. Cook on bottom rack at 357 turnin' every 15 min. or so until golden brown. At the end I add a sprinkling pf paprika to add a nice color. I swear ya can't tell this from fried (except for the lack of grease.) Keeps my cholesterol down and Dr. White Coat happy.

Girl I'm sure prayin' for you. That back thing has gone on long enough!!! Kinda like my shingles! Oh...we're a mess aren't we??? Heeehehehe!

I can't wait to hear about your cookin' classes!!!

God bless ya and have a super day sweetie!!!

If you ever want to get rid of the Halloween ceramics let me know, those are Gems!
And as soon as I get a hold of a chicken, I'm going to try this recipe, and probably eat the whole thing by myself.
