Fried Chicken Dinner

On Saturday it was pouring rain so we couldn't grill. We had leftover buttermilk in the fridge so SP asked for fried chicken. I didn't feel like standing over the stove frying the chicken so I decided to try Ina's recipe for Oven Fried Chicken:

It worked out great. You fry the chicken for a few minutes and then finish it in the oven. The outside got nice and crispy and I had 30 minutes to get the mashed potatoes and corn together without stressing. Our only complaint was that the coating wasn't very thick. Next time I'll double coat with the buttermilk and flour.

Earlier in the day SP made buttermilk biscuits:

I cooked some corn on the cob:

... and we had mashed potatoes to round out the meal:

Pin It!


  1. Now that is a good meal to have on a rainy day! I'll have to try that recipe for oven baked chicken :)

  2. The chicken looks perfect! My husband always asks for fried chicken and I have yet to make it for him. Your entire plate looks delicious!

  3. Joelen - It was surprisingly good and I tell myself it's healthier then traditional fried chicken. :P

    Melissa - Thanks! This is an easy recipe.

  4. oof what a fantastic looking meal... biscuits too! yum.
