Another recipe from Miss Betty's* Daily Diary Cookbook...I remember Mother making this...
Oven Fried Chicken
1 Fryer cut into serving pieces
1/2 cup butter or margarine
Put butter or margarine in bottom of baking pan. Place in 400 degree oven and melt. Mix flour, salt, pepper in a paper bag. Add a few pieces of chicken and shake until well coated. Place in pan, skin side down, in a single layer. Bake 30 minutes, uncovered. Turn chicken skin side up and cook 30 minutes or until tender.
