Some easy recipes for oven-fried chicken are Betty Crocker's oven-fried chicken and southern oven-fried chicken. The Betty Crocker recipe calls for 1/4 cup of butter,1/2 cup of all-purpose flour,1 teaspoon of paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
Melt the butter in a baking pan over medium heat. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a shallow bowl. Coat the pieces of chicken in the flour mixture, and place each one in the baking pan. Make sure that the skin side of the pieces faces down.
Cook the chicken in an oven that is set to 425 F for 60 minutes. Flip each piece halfway through the baking process. Chicken breasts should be cooked until they register an internal temperature of 170 F, while legs and thighs should register 180 F.
The southern oven-fried chicken recipe calls for the same ingredients as the Better Crocker recipe. However, the southern oven-fried chicken recipe includes 3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese that needs to be added to the flour mixture before coating the pieces of chicken. The recipe also suggests cooking the chicken for 30 minutes, flipping the pieces, and then cooking them for an additional 15 minutes, instead of 30 minutes.
