Mississippi Oven-Fried Chicken

All of the yumminess of fried chicken with only a little bit of the guilt.

1 broiler-fryer chicken
1/2 c. fine bread crumbs
2 tspn. salt
1 tspn. paprika
1/4 tspn. pepper
1/4 c. melted butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Wash chicken pieces and pat dry.

In a medium bowl combine bread crumbs, salt, paprika and pepper. Stir to thoroughly mix.

Brush each piece of chicken with butter and then roll in the bread crumb mixture.

Place each piece of chicken in a lightly greased shallow baking dish skin side up.

Bake at 425 degrees for 35-45 minutes.

What does the family think? I LOVE this chicken. It is so good!!! Hubby and our oldest like it and our youngest isn’t a big chicken fan, but he will eat it. I don’t make this a lot though because I am the only person in my family that will eat dark meat. That’s a lot of dark meat for only one person.
