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!

How to Make Amish Oven-Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • 2Place 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.
  • 3In a large resealable plastic bag, combne the flour and seasonings.
  • 4Roll 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.
  • 5Place chicken in the pan, skin side down; bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
