"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 by Step Method
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (set oven rack to lowest position).
Grease a casserole dish (use a casserole dish large enough to hold the chicken without over crowding).
In a shallow bowl combine the flour with 1-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon seasoned salt and 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper.
Heat butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Coat the chicken into the flour mixture pressing down with hands to adhere the flour to the chicken; transfer the coated chicken to a plate (do not discard the flour mix) allow the chicken to sit for about 8-10 minutes.
Heat butter and oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.
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).
Transfer the chicken to baking dish placing skin-side up.
Bake (400 degrees) for 25 minutes.
In the meantime for the sauce; in a bowl whisk/mix all sauce ingredients together until combined.
After the 25 minutes cooking time remove the chicken from oven and pour the sauce over and around the chicken pieces.
Return to oven and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and sauce is bubbly and hot.
Serve with cooked rice.
No special items needed.
