Okay, I may be on a diet, but I love the flavor that butter gives to dishes (real butter). If you are not a butter fan, this is definitely teh wrong recipe for you, otherwise, if you're like me, your tastebuds will be dancing the minute you taste this!!!

    ritz butter crackers, crushed finely
  • 1/2 tsp
    garlic juice
  • ·
    salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 c
    real butter, cut in slices
  • 1 tsp
    italian seasoning

How to Make Butter Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Soak chicken pieces in a medium bowl or resealable plastic bag with the melted butter for 20-30 minutes in the refridgerator.
  3. Put all dry ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag and shake to mix well.
  4. Coat each piece of chicken in the egg mixture, and place in plastic bag with the dry ingredients. Shake and mix well to coat the chicken completely.
  5. Arrange coated chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place pieces of butter around the chicken
  6. Bake for a total of 25-30 minutes in the oven (or until juices run clear). For a really crispy product (the bottoms can get a bit soggy cooking in teh baking pan), I remove the chicken 1/2 way through the cooking process, and place them on a cookie cooling rack placed over a cookie baking sheet so that the bottom crisps up a bit. Other times I cook the entire time in the baking dish, if I'm being lazy. I love it either way!!!
  7. This is awesome served with either twice baked smashed potatoes or butter noodles, with veggies on the side.
