The Goods Are At Home: Baked Chicken

Do you have a favorite country style restaurant where they serve the BEST baked chicken around?

Well, I don't have to go any farther than my own kitchen.

This is how I bake crispy chicken:

I used 5 TBS of butter and 1 TBS of garlic salt. Place the stick of butter and garlic salt in the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan. Put the pan in the oven while it is preheating to 350 degrees F. Let the butter melt. When the butter is melted, I take it out of the oven and give the butter and garlic salt a stir.

I used a package of 7 chicken legs. Roll the legs in the melted butter mixture and line them up in the pan.

You can use any spices you have on hand to sprinkle on the chicken. I used Italian spice, Thyme (always good on chicken), poultry seasoning, white pepper, and a little smoked paprika.

Bake it in the oven for 45 to 60 minutes and you will have that restaurant style "best baked chicken".
With the chicken pieces being rolled in butter it creates a crispy coating when it bakes.

This is one of my family's favorites, and I used to make this all the time while my kids were growing up.

  5. Thank you so much Cathy and Micheal Ann...this was used a lot when I was working 50-60 hours a week and had mouths to feed. And the simple sides (like Michael Ann's) made the meal perfect.
