CHERi's Baked *Fried* Chicken



Love Fried Chicken but hate all that Grease? Yeah, we know it's not healthy and I hate cleaning it up so here's a healthier and easy recipe that is so Tasty, the Secret is to get your butter really hot in the pan, but DO Not Burn, and be careful when putting chicken in pan to bake.

Serves: 6
What You NEED:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon All Purpose Seasoning (I make My own)
¾ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon paprika
Salt (I use very Little)
½ stick butter (or ¼ cup)
Buttermilk
1 gallon-size Ziploc bag (optional)

How to make it:
Place thawed chicken breasts in a bowl of buttermilk, cover, and let soak 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator..
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine and mix thoroughly flour, salt, seasoned salt, pepper, and Paprika in a gallon-size Ziploc bag or bowl.
Cut ½ stick of butter into a few pieces and place in a 9- x 13-inch pan. Melt butter in preheated oven.
Spread melted butter around the bottom of the pan. Lightly spray the pan with cooking spray, if needed, to make sure that there are no dry spots(the secret here is to get your butter good and hot but not burn)
Shake excess buttermilk off of chicken and completely coat each piece in flour mixture. Either shake in the bag until coated or dip each piece in the bowl until coated.
Place each piece of chicken in the preheated pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn each piece of chicken over and continue baking for 20 minutes more, or until cooked through (170 degrees F).
