"I usually do this with chicken breast, boneless or bone-in. You can do it with whatever parts you like. I've been making my oven "fried" chicken like this since the '60s! This may sound like a lot of work, but it just takes more time to write it out than to do it. NOTE: Jacqueline in KY warns about expired biscuit mix."

How to Make My Oven "Fried" Chicken and Biscuits

Step-by-Step

  1. IMPORTANT NOTE: the timing for this recipe is based on using good sized chicken breasts with skin on and bone in; if using other parts, please adjust the timing.
  2. Put the 1/3 cup of shortening and 1/3 cup butter in 9x13-inch baking pan lined with foil. I use solid Crisco.
  3. Put baking pan into cold oven and heat oven to 400°F
  4. Meanwhile, put biscuit mix and seasonings in large plastic bag.
  5. Put one piece of chicken in bag and shake to coat.
  6. Do this for all pieces.
  7. When 400°F is reached, remove the pan from the oven.
  8. Place chicken pieces 'skin' side down in hot pan.
  9. Bake for approx 35 minutes.
  10. Meanwhile, using the Bisquick left in the bag, add enough Bisquick and milk to make a recipe of biscuits per directions on box.
  11. You can make drop or rolled biscuits.
  12. When the time is up on the chicken, remove the pan from the oven, turn the pieces over and CROWD them over to one short side of pan.
  13. On other side, place or drop biscuits close together in all those gorgeous juices
  14. Put back into oven and bake for 15 or more minutes, until biscuits are done.
  15. There is no need to butter THESE biscuits, they have soaked up all the juices etc from the baking pan!
  16. ENJOY!
