Rose Mary's Story

I first tasted this awesome recipe while visiting family in Kansas City Missouri, it is /was from a famous restaurant there called Stephesons Restaurant. I fell in love with it, then I found out they had a little cookbook, and the recipe was in it, I had to have it. I understand the restaurant has since closed, but I am still enjoying the recipe because I have the cookbook, I did make a couple of changes to the recipe, but it is good anyway you serve it in my book. It is definately a family favorite.

1/2 c
1 1/2 tsp

1 tsp
1/4 -1/2 tsp

1 1/2 c
warm/hot milk evaporated or regular
1 can(s)
cream of chicken soup (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

PREHEAT OVEN TO 425 DEGREES F. Spray a 9X13 X2 inch size pan with non stick cooking spray & set aside till needed.Mix flour and spices together in a reclosable zip lock bag. Dip chicken in water to moisten so flour will stick to chicken.
Place one to two pieces of chicken in bag at a time. Shake well to coat with flour.
Place chicken parts in prepared pan with skin side facing up. Dot each piece with 1 or 2 pats of butter. Bake UNCOVERED in preheated 425 degree F. oven for 30 minutes, or until pieces are golden brown & crisp.
Remove pan from oven, Heat milk in microwave till hot & pour milk carefully around the base of chicken parts. COVER with aluminum foil & seal pan tightly. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F. Return to oven and bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 additional minutes or until juices run clear.
Note you can add 1 can of cream of chicken soup undiluted when you add the hot milk to give you more gravy. Serve over rice, mashed potatoes or noodles with biscuits or hot dinner rolls.
Please note: Original recipe called for non fat powdered milk, but I find it easier to use evaporated or regular milk. Also sometimes I like to add the addition of sliced bell peppers, onions, & sliced mushrooms with the chicken during the last 45 minutes of cooking time.

    There used to be a Stephesons Restaurant at the edge of the AR/MO line. They served the best Apple Fritters. Are they by chance in the cookbook???

    yipee yipee yipee...I knew I should have bought one of their cookbooks before they closed down!!!
    You'll have to make them, dusted with powdered sugar they are a dream.
    Sometimes they would bring you some homemade apple butter to dip them in......oh my goodness was that ever yum yum.

    The recipe for the Apple Butter is in there too., so I will have to post both of them. The little booklet is only 48 pages and spiral bound, but has some good recipes. Well I gotta run I am making Panko Chicken for dinner tonight, so I can post pix.

    Thanks in advance for posting both...yes, I remember looking at the little cookbook while waiting for our table (or browsing thru there gift shop where they sold the cookbooks).
    We ate there every chance we got...usually for someone in the family's birthday or anniversary. It was close to a country club and was kind of a fancy place.
    Always white linen tablecloths and napkins, fresh flowers on the table (not just a bud or arrangement).
    We'd eat so many apple fritters with apple butter that by the time dinner arrived I was almost to full to even eat it. Lots of times I'd take home a "doggy box".
