Maggie Monday: Oven Baked Chicken

In my quest to find new recipes for the blog I have often missed some of the simple, yet delicious ones out there. I’ll have to try the one Maggie brings us today….

I found a number of Betty Crocker recipes lately that I have tried, and they’ve all been easy, tasty, and repeatable! This one is for oven baked chicken, and I swear I like it more than friend chicken. It was crisp and tasty and super easy to make.

Picky daughter #2 even ate it. I chose to use thighs and legs, since they were on sale. This appeared to confuse son #3. He asked why the chicken we were eating had so many legs. True story. Lucky for him he is good-looking.

I made a ton of this to take and serve cold at a picnic. It was just as good cold. Great take along dish, at any temperature. If you need a quick and easy meal- this is truly Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.


Oven Baked Chicken

What you need:

1 Tbs butter

2/3 cup Bisquick

1 ½ tsp paprika

1 ¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

1 whole chicken, cut up

What you do:

Heat oven to 425. Melt butter in 13×9 baking dish, in oven.

Stir together Bisquick,, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with this mixture.  Spread melted butter over whole pan. Place chicken, skin side down, in the hot dish. Bake 35 minutes and turn chicken. Bake another 15 minutes, until juices run clear when thickest piece of chicken is cut.

    I got this recipe from my mother-in-law about 35 years ago. She used garlic powder instead of paprika, and the pieces baked skin side up throughout. You drizzled a little melted butter on the tops at the end and turned the oven up a little to brown before removing.

    – Ha ha!

    I’d love to know your son’s response to this line of yours when he’s a teen! Younger and he won’t get it. Older and *he’ll* laugh at himself. Teenage, that’s the magical phase! 😉

        Although it is heartening that he still retained some childhood wonder. Being a grown up know-it-all can be deadening.

        Thanks for replying, Maggie. I enjoy reading your Monday contributions. 🙂
