Homemade Shake-and- Bake Chicken

I was recently invited to participate in a recipe swap. The stipulations were that the recipe I submitted should be easy to make and not have a lot of ingredients. That should be easy. I don't like recipes that have a lot of steps. As I went through my collection, I was amazed to see how many of my favorite recipes involved a lot of ingredients and quite a few steps. Then I came upon the easiest recipe I make: Homemade Shake-and-Bake Chicken.

There are only eight ingredients, counting the chicken and all you have to do is mix the flour and seasonings in a plastic bag, dip the chicken in milk and then shake it in the bag and bake. While the chicken is baking, you make your other dishes. An easy, delicious dinner.

Verdict: Yum!! This one's a keeper!!


Homemade Shake-and-Bake Chicken
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 chicken legs and thighs
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, paprika, salt, garlic powder, thyme, and pepper in a plastic bag.
Dip chicken legs in milk, shake off excess. Add to bag and shake to coat evenly. Place chicken on a greased baking sheet. Bake 40 minutes, until chicken is tender and coating crisp.
