Outstanding Oven Fried Chicken

Outstanding Oven Fried Chicken

My grandma had a very tiny kitchen but she was the most amazing cook. No matter what she made it was delicious. She use to make the most delicious fried chicken you would ever eat.
I have searched for a recipe just like hers and this is the most amazing Outstanding Oven Baked Chicken that tastes like deep fried but so much healthier for you. (Grandma would love it too)
Made fresh with just a few very basic ingredients, this fried chicken is absolutely delicious.
I use to make this all the time when the kids were growing up. I still make it today. It is so delicious 😋 and it will be eaten up very quickly.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
