Golden Chicken Recipe

The mildly seasoned coating makes this chicken tender and juicy. I'm sure your family will enjoy the old-fashioned flavor and appearance as much as mine does.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups crushed stone-ground wheat crackers (about 50 crackers)
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 1 cup club soda or milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Place 1-1/2 cups in a resealable plastic bag. Store remaining coating in a covered container in the refrigerator for future use.
  • 2. Dip chicken in soda or milk, then place in bag; seal and shake to coat. Place chicken in a single layer in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings (4-1/2 cups coating).

"I thought this was pretty good. I only used 2 teaspoons of salt though because it seemed like 2 tablespoons was a lot. I like that theres enough for a second batch later on. I also didn't have stone-ground wheat crackers but had garlic crackers that I used. Overall, it was pretty good."
