Oven Fried Chicken, aka Gebratenes Hühnchen or Brathendl, was (and is) a real treat for our family. The easy way was when my hubby brought home fast-food fried chicken pieces. Now, I know what you're probably thinking - this doesn't sound like a German-style chicken dinner. But remove that breading and include paprika in the rub ... German!
But when I served it with potatoes and red cabbage, m-m-m-m-m, it sure tasted like traditional German cooking! Really! One of our kids' favorites. And, leftovers are great.
Arrange chicken pieces, skin side down, in a single layer on stoneware cookie sheet, or on cookie rack on foil-lined cookie sheet.
Sprinkle seasoning salt and paprika all over. Turn pieces over, skin side up, and sprinkle seasoning salt and paprika all over. Do not cover chicken.
Put on center rack in oven and bake for one (1) hour.
Fast Food Chicken?
The were two problems with getting fast-food chicken. First, it was expensive. Second, since we live way in the country, it was almost cold by the time he got it home. In other words, what I really wanted was quick and easy dinner recipes.
I experimented and came up with this easy version. Made in the oven, it was quick and didn't splatter! The above posted recipe is my solution. I wanted a recipe for roasted chicken that was easy and economical.
Easy, I just take my favorite seasoning salt, sprinkle it on the chicken pieces and bake.
Economical, I use whatever is on sale - chicken drumsticks, chicken thighs, quarter chicken pieces or I cut up a whole chicken.
Easy Clean-Up ...
Quick clean up was also important. As much as I like quick and easy dinner recipes, if they take forever to clean up afterwards, I don't' use them often.
In the beginning, I put the chicken pieces on a cookie rack on a cookie sheet (with an edge). Good, but messy to clean. Not a winner.
So, I tried lining a cookie sheet with foil. That worked better.
However, I found that my stoneware cookie sheet with an edge works best of all. I just put the chicken pieces directly on the stoneware - no rack. What's great about stoneware, there's very little splattering.
Both ways will give finger-lickin' good chicken.
Please don't use an old stewing hen! Tough!
For these types of quick chicken recipes you'll need a nice young bird!
Bake as many pieces as you need - leftovers are always nice!
