    Chicken: Preheat Oven 325 degrees: In a bowl combine the milk plus the vinegar and let sit while preparing the flour. In a large bowl combine the flour and all of the seasonings; then divide between two bowls. Coat the chicken in the first bowl of seasoned flour; dip in the milk and finally in the second bowl of flour. Repeat this process with each piece of chicken. Place in a baking pan and drizzle each piece of chicken with olive oil. Bake for 55-60 minutes for a nice golden crust and until juices run clear.
