  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Melt butter in 15x10x1-inch pan in oven.
  • 2
    In shallow dish, mix flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Place chicken, skin sides down, in pan.

    Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Turn chicken; bake about 20 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest pieces are cut to bone (at least 165°F).

Expert Tips

  • Leaving the skin on the bone-in pieces keeps the meat moist in the oven. If you like, remove the skin from the pieces before eating.
  • Round out this dinner with creamy mashed potatoes, fresh corn on the cob and warm berry crisp for dessert.
  • Cutting up your own whole chicken (or breaking it down, in chef lingo) is not only cheaper by the pound but it’s surprisingly easy. Try it out the next time you make this recipe.
  • This is a good technique for achieving crispy chicken without dealing with the steps (and mess) of deep-frying.
  • For extra crispy chicken, substitute 1 cup Progresso™ panko crispy breadcrumbs for the flour. Dip the chicken into melted butter before coating with the crumb mixture.

More About This Recipe

  • Whether you’re choosing oven fried chicken thighs or oven fried chicken breast, this recipe offers a foolproof, no-fuss way to get a delicious chicken dinner on the table. While your oven is preheating, add butter to a pan and pop it into the oven. Then get busy coating your chicken in the flour mixture. 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 giving it time to bake to perfection. Do remember to turn the chicken halfway through—after about 30 minutes—which will ensure that it crisps up nicely on both sides. If you’d like to review the basics before you begin, check out Betty’s guide on How to Bake Chicken. While we think this oven fried chicken recipe is the only one you’ll ever need, we don’t want to play favorites. Betty’s got you covered for every occasion in her Best Baked Chicken Recipe Collection.
