Country Oven Fried Chicken


Here’s an awesome recipe for easy to make oven fried chicken. Yes, indeed! You can actually make “fried” chicken in the oven. It’s great because you don’t have all the mess and splatter of traditional pan or deep frying. And of course, it’s easy to just throw the chicken in the oven and let it cook away. But how exactly do we “fry” it in the oven? Simple…

This recipe uses melted butter in place of traditional oil. With the breading of crushed Rice Kisipies and crushed crackers, it creates a wonderful country crisp on the chicken which is so flavorful and so good, you’ll never believe you made this in the oven!
