Oven Fried Chicken

Why don’t we bring the pulley bone back?  I  had such fun with this little piece of fried chicken when I was growing up.  Many of my dreams went in and out of the window with the pull of this bone at the dinner table.  Today my students have never heard of the pulley bone.  It’s too bad they’re missing out on making wishes come true and some  quality family time at the dinner table.

My mother could make really good fried chicken.  I loved her fried chicken!    It was perfectly seasoned, had a crispy crust ,and it was tender and juicy inside.  I don’t fry chicken and not many people I know do either.    It makes a huge mess and I don’t want to deal with the grease, so this is my  way of having my chicken fried.  I use the oven.  You have some prep on the backside, but  it will really pay off when you taste this wonderfully tender and juicy chicken.

If you are looking for a really crispy crust this is not the recipe for you, but it is more of a Maryland fried chicken with a great flavor.  And if you are lucky enough to have leftovers, they are easily reheated by placing in foil.  Don’t completely cover the chicken.  Warm in a 325 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes depending of the thickness of the breasts.
