Oven Fried Chicken With Lemon Sauce

I recently was looking in some vintage cookbooks that I brought home from my Uncle's house that belonged to my Aunt. I found a cookbook printed in 1967 and decided to try a couple of the recipes in the book.

This chicken dish is really good and very easy to do. I thought I'd share it here today.It was submitted by Miss Frances Forbes, Marlin, Texas 1967

Oven Fried Chicken with Lemon Sauce
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup salad oil - (vegetable oil)
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 clove garlic, crushed

1/2 c. flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon paprika
whole chicken cut up
1/2 cup butter melted

Make sauce: combine all sauce ingredients, mix well. Refrigerate at least one hour before using.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare chicken: combine flour, salt, pepper, paprika in a large bowl. Use to coat chicken well.

Arrange chicken pieces, skin side down in a single layer in a shallow pan.

Brush chicken well with melted butter.

Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Turn chicken.

Pour sauce over all the chicken. Bake 30 minutes longer, or until golden brown and tender.

Enjoy. This was really tasty and good, something different to try with chicken. I loved the tangy lemon taste this sauce gave the chicken. Hope you will try and find yourself enjoying this old recipe.

  7. Hi Suzanne, I haven't forgotten my favorite bloggers, I have been in Florida for two weeks all together. Christmas week and a week in January. Lot of busy times at Christmas and our grandson's wedding this past weekend. It is good to be back and catching up. I posted our grandson's wedding today. It was a wonderful event with lots of our loving family present.

    This recipe sounds delicious. I will definitely make this for the next big crowd that comes for dinner. Unless it stops snowing, that might be a long time from now. We are snowed in totally and it is still snowing. It is beautiful though.

    Have a wonderful New Year. I hope to join in on Thinghy Thursday. It is good to be visiting again.

    Warm hugs, Jeanne
