Magic In The Kitchen!
As requested by Tina, here's Merlin's Famous Magic Chicken!
(This is repeated from The Mickey Mouse Cookbook without permission.)
1 teaspoon shortening
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces
Preheat the oven to 425. Grease a baking pan, 13x9x2 inches, with the shortening.
Put the flour, paprika, and salt in a clean plastic or paper bag with no holes in it. Twist or close top of bag, then shake to mix the ingredients.
Place 2 or 3 chicken pieces in the bag. Twist or slide it closed again and hold it while you shake the bag to coat the chicken with the flour mixture.
Repeat the shaking until you've coated all the chicken pieces. Place them side by side in the baking pan, skin sides up.
Bake for 55 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown on the outside and tender when you stick a fork into the thickest piece.
Mom's biscuits and carrots tasty but optional. ;)
