Oven Fried Chicken and Biscuits

This one comes from a good ole country cook who lives in Creal Springs, a tiny town here in southern Illinois. NORMA LINDSEY shared this delicious recipe in our COAL COUNTRY COOKIN' cookbook. She is the sister-in-law of one of my cousins and is known for her good southern-style cookin.

This is a simple recipe that is finger-licken good!

Try it and add it to your "comfort foods" file.


1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 1/2- 3 lb. frying chicken, cut up
1 can biscuits
2 T. milk
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic salt (or garlic powder if you'd rather)

Melt butter in 9x13" baking pan. Combine flour, salt, pepper and paprika in a paper or plastic bag. Shake to blend. Add meat 2-3 pieces at a time. Shake to coat. Place meat, skin side down in butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn meat. Sprinkle with salt and bake 15 minutes more. Move meat to one end of pan. Dip biscuits one at a time in milk, then Parmesan/garlic salt mixture. Place at other end of pan. Bake 15-20 minutes longer.


  1. Yum. I think every recipe I have goes in the comfort food file. Does that make me a glutton?

  2. SO delicious looking! Hubby would love this recipe! Bookmarking it! Thanks!!
