We made this oven fried chicken with Original Bisquick mix exactly as written and my entire family loved it! Got to love it when a recipe pleases kids and grandma alike. Will make again :)

It doesn't get much easier than this. It was so easy to prepare and had a nice crunchy skin while the meat was moist and tender. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Teresa. Made for FYC tag.
