Oven Fried Chicken

It is starting to get pretty hot outside and no one wants to slave over a hot stove in the summer heat. So here is a take on traditional fried chicken that gets you away from the hot stove. But you will have to turn on the oven…


  • 8 boneless skinless thighs or 6 boneless skinless breasts
  • 2 tbs paprika
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine the flour and the seasonings. Alternately, instead of the seasonings listed above (paprika, garlic, salt), you can use Dave’s Down Home Flava’ Soul Food Seasoning or any similar seasoning. Check out this turkey seasoning.

Add the chicken to the flour mixture to lightly coat.

Put the butter in a 9×13 baking dish and melt. Place the chicken in the dish with the melted butter.

Cook the chicken for 20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven and turn it over in the baking dish. Cook for an additional 20 minutes.
