Our Favorite Oven Fried Chicken

This is my favorite oven-fried chicken recipe.  It is perfect for those nights when you are wondering what you will do with that package of chicken you have thawing in your fridge.  I make sure I always have  Peppridge Farm Herb Stuffing in my pantry so that I can make this meal when I don’t know what else to make. 

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, Sally Hughey, about 25 years ago and have made it ever since.  It makes your entire house smell delicious!  When the Hughey kids were younger, I used a whole cut up chicken because it is cheaper.  These days, I usually use boneless, skinless breasts. 

1 pkg of Peppridge Farm Herb Stuffing

1-1.5 lbs of chicken (can use boneless, skinless breasts, bone-in breasts, or a whole chicken cut up)

1 cup buttermilk

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 stick of butter (do not use margarine)

1.  Preheat oven to 400

2.  Put stuffing mix in a large ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin or meat mallet

3.  Rinse chicken and lightly season with salt and pepper

4.  Dip chicken pieces into buttermilk and then coat with stuffing mix

5.  Place onto a cookie sheet that has been lightly greased.  Pour melted butter over the top of the chicken

6.  For chicken breasts:  Cook 20 minutes, turn over and cook 10 more minutes.  For Bone in breasts or whole cut up chicken, cook 30 minutes, turn and cook 15 minutes more.
