Oven Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken is a staple of good Southern cooking. This is a bit healthier of a recipe. It gives you the taste of fried chicken without all the fat (beware...it STILL has some fat in it).

2 Tbsp. butter
¾ c. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. thyme or oregano
1 whole chicken cut into pieces (or just use boneless skinless breasts)

Pre-heat the oven to 425ºF. Melt the butter in a 9x13 baking dish. In a med. bowl mix the flour with the parsley flakes, paprika, salt, and thyme. Dredge the chicken pieces in the mixture. Place in the prepared baking dish. Bake for about 35 minutes. Turn and cook for about 15 minutes or so until fork tender.

Useful tip: I always line my baking sheets with foil...makes clean-up oh so easy :)
