Oven-Fried Chicken

  • 4 oz. bag potato chips
  • 1/4 tsp.garlic salt
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 lb. fryer chicken
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine

Crush potato chips to yield 2 cups crushed, add garlic salt, and a dash of pepper.

Select 2-1/2 to 3-lb. ready-to-cook broiler or fryer chicken, cut up. Dip pieces in 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine, then roll in crumb mixture. Place pieces, skin-side-up and not touching each other, in a greased pan. Sprinkle with remaining butter and crumbs. Bake at 375° about 1/2 hour or until done. 

Variations: Crushed BBQ chips instead of regular chips, or unsalted chips for sodium-conscious diners. Or, substitute 2 cups crushed Corn Flakes, or 3 cups crushed Rice Krispies.
