Lark's "Fake Fried" Chicken

I LOVE Chicken! But my most favorite way to eat it is Fried.   NOT great for my waist line.

I have tried Oven Baked chicken recipes before.....and while some are good,
NOT all is created equal. So That got my mind to thinking. (and I don't need to tell you that when Mom is trying to figure out a new recipe...WATCH OUT!)
 I decided to see if I could combine several of the recipes I saw into ONE REALLY GOOD recipe.  Well this is what I came up with. And I have to tell you my husband didn't even notice that the chicken was skinless.  :) (Score one for Sneaky Me!)

*I end up Doubling this recipe*


6 TBSP.  Butter (I used I cant believe it's not butter)
2/3 C. Bisquick
1 1/2 tsp. Poultry Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 1/4 tsp. Salt (can use salt substitute)
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Onion powder
4 lbs. Chicken ( I use skinless)


Preheat oven to 425
In a 9x13 pan cut up the margarine & place in oven while heating to melt .


Mix all dry ingredients together until well blended.


When margarine is melted take out of oven. Set aside.
I like to keep all the chicken in a bowl full of water. I take one piece of chicken at a time, lightly shake off water.(do not pat dry. You want it wet to hold coating) toss into the coating. Then place "top side" down into the pan with margarine. * If using skin on chicken, place the skin side down. 


Bake uncovered for 35 minutes. Then turn each piece over and return to bake for another 15-20 minutes.  Making sure it is cooked all the way through.


Now if that isn't the Best "fake fried chicken" you have ever tasted...
send me the recipe that is!  :)


Enjoy!

I always oven-fry chicken because it is so much easier. I'll have to try your combo of seasonings! Looks fabulous.
