My favorite dish at our local Amish restaurant is their baked chicken. We haven’t eaten there in ages, because we never go to that side of town anymore so I needed to find out how to make this delicious dinner. I found this recipe in an old church cookbook and it was contributed by an older lady who was raised Amish. It tastes just like the chicken I get at the restaurant and it is very easy to make.
This recipe is best when made with chicken which still has its skin on. Chicken thighs are great or breasts with rib meat work well too. This is an added bonus because these cuts of meat cost less!
- 3 lbs chicken
- ½ cup flour
- ½ Tbs paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Grease a baking dish with sides.
- In a bowl whisk the dry ingredients until well mixed.
- Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture and place on pan.
- Bake for 1 hour, turning chicken over after 30 minutes.
