Amish Style Oven Fried Chicken
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup (2/3 stick) butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon dried marjoram (optional)
8-9 chicken pieces - legs, thighs, breasts
Place the oil and butter in a shallow cooking pan and put in a preheated 375 oven to melt. Set aside.
In a paper sack, combine the flour and seasonings. Roll the chicken pieces, 3 at a time, in the melted oil-butter mixture, then drop them in the sack and shake to cover.
Place on a dish or wax paper until you have them all done.
Place the chicken in the pan, skin side down. Bake for 45 minutes.
With a spatula, turn over and bake 5-10 minutes longer, or until the top crust begins to bubble.
