Serving Size: Serves 4 Ingredients
  • 8 Pieces Skin on Chicken (legs/thighs/breasts)
  • 2 1/2 tsps Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • Pinch Chipotle Pepper Seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 1/4 Cups Milk
  • 1 1/4 Cups Flour
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine your salt, pepper, smoked paprika, chipotle pepper, garlic powder and basil. Mix together. In a separate large bowl add your milk, and in another dish, add your flour. Also, have a baking sheet with a resting rack on it.
  • First, take your chicken, and season liberally with your spice mixture (you will have a decent amount of the spice mixture left over so mix it into the flour).
  • Next, roll your chicken pieces in flour and shake off the excess. Quickly dip the chicken in the milk, coating on all sides, and then back into the flour to coat again. Shake off excess flour well, and lay on the baking sheet with the resting rack, skin side up. Repeat this process with all your chicken pieces.
  • Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Remove and allow to rest about 5 minutes before serving.
