Julep Style has another recipe submission: Oven-Fried Chicken. This recipe puts a healthier spin on the traditional Southern dish. It’s also much easier to prepare because there’s no popping oil to deal with.
·1 3.5-4 lb. Whole Fryer Chicken
·1/4 cup of Butter or Smart Balance
·Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
·1-2 tsp. Paprika
·2-3 tsp. Ground Dry Mustard
·1-2 cups Flour (plain or self-rising)
Heat Oven to 425°F. Cut up chicken. Melt butter in 9x13x2″ pan in the oven. Watch carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn. Remove pan from oven. Salt chicken and sprinkle with pepper, dry mustard, and paprika. Dip chicken in flour. Place chicken skin-side-down in buttered pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn chicken. Bake 15-20 minutes longer (until brown & juices run clear). Remove chicken from oven, cover with foil, let cool for 10 minutes.
Serve & enjoy!
