Expert Tips

  • For 11 grams of fat and 240 calories per serving, remove skin from chicken before cooking. Do not melt butter in pan; spray pan with cooking spray. Decrease butter to 2 tablespoons; drizzle melted butter over chicken after turning in step 3.
  • Substitute 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise into 1 1/2-inch strips, for the cut-up whole chicken. Decrease butter to 2 tablespoons. After coating chicken with flour mixture in step 2, toss with melted butter in pan. Bake uncovered 15 minutes. Turn strips; bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until no longer pink in center.
  • Substitute 1 cup cornflake crumbs for the 1/2 cup flour. Dip chicken into 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted, before coating with crumb mixture.

More About This Recipe
  • Crispy fried chicken without the frying, that’s what you get with this recipe. Instead of wiping down a grease-splattered stove after dinner, you simply wash a single 13x9 pan. If that sounds good to you, head to the pantry because you probably already have the ingredients your chicken needs — flour, paprika, butter, salt and pepper. While your oven is preheating, add the butter to your 13x9 pan and pop it inside your oven — so efficient! Then get busy coating your chicken in the flour mixture, and by the time you’re done the butter will be melted, your pan and oven will be preheated, and it’s as simple as putting the chicken in and waiting. Do remember to turn the chicken halfway through — after about 30 minutes — this will ensure your chicken crisps up nicely on both sides. While we think this recipe is the only one you’ll ever need for oven-fried chicken, we don’t want to play favorites. Betty’s got a chicken recipe perfect for every occasion!
