Another wonderful and delicious recipe from one of my Amish cookbooks (the Amish are really great cooks).

Besides bone-in chicken pieces, you can also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts; I've also used these and they turned out great!

Ingredients

1/3 c
vegetable oil
1/3 c
butter
1 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
salt
2 tsp
pepper
2 tsp
paprika
1 tsp
garlic salt
1 tsp
dried marjoram (optional)
8 to 9 chicken pieces (legs, thighs, breasts)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 F.
2
Place the oil and butter in a shallow cooking pan (such as a jellyroll pan) and place in preheated oven until butter is melted; remove and set aside.
3
In a large resealable plastic bag, combne the flour and seasonings.
4
Roll the chicken pieces, 3 at a time, in the melted oil-butter mixture; drop them in the bag and shake to cover; place on a dish or wax paper.
5
Place chicken in the pan, skin side down; bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

With a spatula, turn over and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer, or until the top crust begins to bubble; serve hot or cold (crust texture is better if it is not refrigerated before eating).
