This simple and lighter fried chicken is coated with a seasoned flour mixture and then it’s baked to perfection. Butter is melted in the baking pan and then the chicken is added to the hot pan, creating a flavorful, crispy coating. Depending on the size of your family, feel free to reduce or increase the amount of chicken and breading.
Use a budget-friendly cut-up chicken in this recipe or use your family’s favorite pieces. It’s excellent with whole chicken legs or thighs. Use a food thermometer to ensure the chicken is fully cooked. The minimum safe temperature for chicken is 165 F.
