Baked Fried Chicken

Love this recipe. My chicken has this nice golden brown look which I could never achieve ❤️. I’m doing it the way my great-grandmother taught my grandmother and she taught my mom and so on…


•1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1/2 stick butter
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1 gallon-size Ziploc bag
•1 cup all-purpose flour
•6 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into thirds
•3/4 teaspoon pepper
•2 teaspoon paprika


Place thawed chicken strips in a bowl of buttermilk, cover, and let soak 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine and mix thoroughly flour, salt, seasoned salt, pepper, and Paprika in a gallon-size Ziploc bag or bowl.

Cut 1/2 stick of butter into a few pieces and place in a 9- x 13-inch pan. Melt butter in preheated oven.

Spread melted butter around the bottom of the pan. Lightly spray the pan with cooking spray, if needed, to make sure that there are no dry spots.

Shake excess buttermilk off chicken and completely coat each piece in flour mixture. Either shake in the bag until coated or dip each piece in the bowl until coated.

Place each piece of chicken in the preheated pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn each piece of chicken over and continue baking for 20 minutes more, or until cooked through (170 degrees F).
