This Sunday dinner staple is first fried and then baked to a crispy golden brown. Well-seasoned with oregano and sage, this classic is sure to satisfy diners at church potlucks or late-summer picnics, too. I love fixing it for family and friends. —Donna Kuhaupt, Slinger, Wisconsin
Meet the Cook: My family - husband and our two sons, 11 and 8 - tell me they'd like me to fix chicken with this coating mix all of the time. I've had the recipe for years. In fact, I can't remember how I got it...just my many additions and deletions.

The pecans that give this dish its unique nutty flavor are plentiful in the South, and so is chicken. I love to make and serve this easy dish because the chicken comes out moist, tasty and crispy.

This oven-fried chicken is the perfect dish to prepare in advance and take on a picnic because it tastes just as good cold as it does warm. It's been a family favorite for years.

"Soy sauce adds a touch of Asian flavor and paprika lends rich color to this moist mouthwatering entree," says cook Karen Arthur from her Wainfleet, Ontario home. "It's super easy to double or triple the recipe for company, too!"—Karen Arthur, Wainfleet, Ontario
