Kroger bargain recipe of the week- Oven fried chicken

Bargain Meal of the Week

Who doesn't like fried chicken??? I loooove it...... I just am scared to make it. I think of hot oil spattering and keeping my kids out of the kitchen. My left eye twitches just thinking about it ! Kroger has chicken thighs on sale this week and I found a recipe for OVEN fried chicken. My mouth is watering just thinking about it...... Happy eating!

Check out Stretching a Buck deals here to see more deals at Kroger. I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.

Oven Fried Chicken

6 chicken thighs (On sale $1.99 a lb) $2.96
2 eggs (On sale .98) .16
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs .50
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place flour in a shallow plate or bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Put the bread crumbs in another shallow plate or bowl and beat the eggs in another bowl.

Dredge the chicken piece by piece in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, until all pieces are coated. Pour the oil into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Add the chicken to the dish and sprinkle with paprika to taste. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then turn pieces over and bake for another 30 minutes. Remove from oven and drain on paper towels. Enjoy!
