Oven Baked Chicken


This oven baked chicken recipe is a buttery twist on the traditional favourite: oven-fried chicken.  My family really enjoyed the flavours and quickly emptied the entire tray (even though I doubled the recipe!).  If you enjoy chicken and like trying out variations, here is a simple fresh idea for you.
