Recipe of the Month

Who doesn’t love fried chicken?? I know…I know…it’s not the healthiest thing to eat. But seriously…if you have it once or twice a year, it’s okay to live a little. Right?

This month’s recipe is an easy version of that standing-over-the-hot-oil chicken we all know and love. It was given to me by my dear friend Joni and is a favorite in our house. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Oven Fried Chicken

Chicken thighs (6+)

Vegetable oil & butter (combined butter and oil will equal about ¼ cup for a 9 x 13 pan)

salt and pepper

other seasonings you like


  • Heat oven to 400.

  • Put combined butter and oil in 9 x 13 pan. Melt butter and warm oil in oven while it heats to temp. Once butter has melted, remove pan from oven.

  • Rinse and pat chicken dry.

  • In a resealable bag, mix flour and any seasonings you desire. Lay it on thick too…because the flour will absorb most of the seasoning flavor. I will typically use seasoned salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.

  • Coat chicken with flour. Place in pan skin side down.

  • Bake for 30 minutes, turn chicken and return to oven. Bake for another 30-45 minutes until chicken is nice and brown and cooked through. We like it crunchy in our house, so I will usually cook it 45 minutes after it’s turned.

  • Once done, put onto paper towels to drain and let cool slightly (otherwise you will scorch your mouth). Great the next day or on a picnic.
