Recipe: Kentucky Baked Chicken

I grew up eating Kentucky Fried Chicken once every two weeks or so. My dad even met Colonel Sanders once on an airplane! Where I grew up in Kentucky, we would sometimes go to "Claudia Sanders Restaurant", sometimes called "Colonel's Lady", a restaurant in Shelbyville, Kentucky that the Colonel set up for his wife; they served KYFried, baked ham, creamed spinach, homemade biscuits, pots of honey, and so much more. Banquet style, with the serving carts piled high with the most delicious down-home dishes.

About the KYFried Chicken... I've tried for years to duplicate their recipe, but still don't have it. This one comes kinda close.

Since it uses fresh chicken, this isn't something you could make if confined, with your stored foods. However, if you have a homestead, this is a MUST recipe!

3 cups self-rising flour
2 packages Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix
1 tablespoon paprika
2 envelopes instant tomato cup-a-soup mix
a dash of onion powder (optional)
salt/pepper to taste
butter or lactose-free equivalent

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a medium flat bowl. Coat chicken pieces with mixture. Lay out on sprayed cooking/baking sheet. Pour melted butter over all. Bake 1 hour until crispy.
