Oven Fried Chicken
2.5-3 lb chicken breasts
1/4 cup shorting and 1/4 cup butter OR 4-6 tbsp olive oil. Personally, I opt for the olive oil.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 425. Wash chicken and pat dry. In oven, melt shortening and butter in a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan. You can also coat a pan with olive oil, or coat your chicken in olive oil. Mix flour, salt, paprika, and pepper. Coat chicken pieces thoroughly with the flour mixture.
Place chicken in baking pan. Cook uncovered 30 minutes. Turn chicken; Cook additional 20-30 minutes or more until thickest pieces are fork-tender.
