KFC Chicken (mock)

♥ Baked KFC Chicken ♥

  Did the secret get discovered?  KFC's secret recipe? It is very close and it is also baked...not fried! Wee Bear and I enjoyed this delicious baked chicken, that I found on my Facebook feed.

It's Summer and time for a picnic! Herd the kiddo's into the family truckster and head to the lake with your homemade crispy chicken! This is super easy and you are really going to love it! It is very close to the Colonel's!!

Milk or buttermilk ( I used buttermilk)
chicken pieces or skinless chicken breast tenderloin strips
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 T Season All or Tony's (I used Tony's)
3/4 tsp. Pepper
1 c. Flour
2 tsp. Paprika

Place thawed chicken breast tenderloin strips or chicken pieces in a bowl of milk or buttermilk. Let soak for 20-30 min.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut 1/2 stick of butter into a few pieces and place in a 9x13 pan. Melt butter in pre-heated oven.

Spread melted butter around the bottom of the pan. Lightly spray the pan, if needed, to make sure that there are no dry spots.

Shake excess milk off of chicken and completely coat each piece with the seasoning mix. You can either shake the chicken in the bag, until coated, or dip each piece in the bowl until coated.

Place each piece of chicken in the pan.

Cook for 20 min. Turn each piece of chicken and continue cooking for 20 more minutes.

Our mid week dinner on the veranda, baked mock KFC chicken, twice baked potatoes, corn on the cob and a Summer salad with fresh vegetables, from my garden and my neighbors!
 My neighbor, Ruth, was so sweet the other night, she called to ask me if I wanted some green onion's! I said sure, I'll meet you in the garden. Her green onion's were growing so fast, she didn't know what to do! She also has beautiful carrots, Kale, peas, artichokes, asparagus, celery and tomato's. I walked right into the kitchen and  made us a delicious salad! Thanks Ruth!

Who can resist a sweet delicious carrot, fresh from the garden? And these tomato's straight off the vine in my herb garden, full of juice and nutrients!

  4. I made this tonight and it's so delicious. I love the fact it's bake and not fried, and I don't have the whole oily stove area to clean after I cook. :) Thanks for the recipe. :)
