Same here - I absolutely love fried chicken!! What about a baked version???

Oven-Fried Chicken

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons milk or water
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (2.5-3 lb.) chicken, cut up and skinned

PREHEAT oven to 400 F. Coat 13 x 9-inch baking dish with butter.

COMBINE eggs and milk in medium bowl. Combine corn meal, flour, paprika and garlic powder in medium bowl. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, coating both sides, then into corn meal mixture. Place in prepared baking dish.

BAKE , brushing chicken once during baking with juices from pan, for 45 to 50 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink near bone. Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste.

SUBSTITUTE 2 lbs. fresh or frozen (thawed) white fish fillets for chicken. Prepare as above. Place skin-side down in baking dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Baked Potato Sticks

4 to 6 Idaho baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter melted
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/3 cup corn flake crumbs
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Select 4 very large or 6 medium size potatoes. Scrub well and cut each potato in to 6 or 8 wedges, lengthwise. Arrange on a baking sheet. Combine melted butter and soy sauce and brush over potatoes. In small bowl, combine corn flake crumbs with sesame seeds. Sprinkle over potatoes. Bake in preheated 400F oven for 35 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.


Baked Potato Wedges

3-4 medium potatoes
2-3 tablespoons of melted butter
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
4 dashes of parsley
Salt & pepper
1 tsp. basil

Scrub potatoes. Do not peel. Cut each potato lengthwise in quarters.
Stir together melted butter, garlic powder, basil and parsley. Arrange
potatoes skin side down on a shallow baking pan. Brush seasoned butter
over cut surfaces of potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake,
uncovered, at 400F. for about 1 hour or until golden brown and tender
when pierced.

these may be a bit healthier!

I make a oven fried chicken too. Mine uses Bisquick, salt, pepper, and paprika. Coat your chicken in that mixture and then bake in a shallow pan (with about 2 T melted butter) for about 20 minutes at 400, then flip it over and bake another 15 minutes.

It's always been a big hit around here, especially when we're craving fried chicken and I don't fry.
