Sometimes the southern girl and me comes out and I just get a craving for fried chicken. But I don’t eat a lot of fried food these days. I have a lot of fond memories of my grandmother Whitley’s fried chicken, and all the time she would spend frying up the chicken in her skillet. I love to find easier ways of doing things, and what better way than to fry the chicken up in the oven. So when those cravings hit this is the recipe I throw together. The best part of this recipe is picking at all the crunchy pits that are left in the pan.

1 whole chicken; cut into 8 pieces (0r chicken pieces of your choice)
