"A KC favorite that goes back many years! Skinless chicken breasts may be used however for the best flavor skin on is recommended, browning the chicken first will help the coating to hold to the chicken and stay crispy, it also improves the flavor. Serve with cooked white or brown rice"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (set oven rack to lowest position).

Step 4

Heat butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 6

Heat butter and oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 7

Just before browning lightly coat the chicken again into the flour mixture shaking off any excess flour.

Brown on both sides (about 4 minutes per side do not cook completely).

Step 9

Transfer the chicken to baking dish placing skin-side up.

Step 10

Bake (400 degrees) for 25 minutes.

This is a great chicken recipe and one that I will definitely use again. The chicken was so moist and delish! I stuffed it with Shirley's Stuffing and it couldn't have been better!

This recipe is a must try for everyone!! I have been struggling with cooking chicken and having it come out dry, but this was awesome. Chicken was so moist and full of flavor! I have even used the buttermilk soak for pork chops and they came out wonderful! Great recipe!
