Potluck Fried Chicken Recipe
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
