HONEY SAUCED CHICKEN
6 pounds frying chicken, cut into pieces
2 cups flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs
4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 cups butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup lemon juice
Roll chicken in mixture of flour, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and paprika.
Put 1 cup butter in a 9x13x2" baking dish. Place in a hot oven (400°F) for a few minutes to melt butter. Do not let it brown. Remove from oven; arrange chicken in a single layer in the pan, turning to coat with the melted butter.
Bake for 30 minutes, skin side down. Turn chicken. Mix remaining 1/2 cup butter, melted honey and lemon juice.
Pour over chicken. Bake for 30 minutes longer or until fork tender, basting frequently with the honey sauce.
