George's Oven-Fried Chicken by Judy- Jude

“I have made this recipe in the past and I am posting it in honor of Judy- Jude. Also posting for the "Cookathon" in memory of her (Jan, 09). She had many favorite recipes, however, this one by her father she really liked. I refer to it as KFC Judy D's Father's Recipe. It is very good.”

  8. NOTE:. This recipe is basically written as is, which I had received from Judy. She has also substituted skinless chicken pieces. And I have often added more spices, to make it similar to Kentucky Fried Chicken -- and used boneless chicken as well. Enjoy, it is a very good recipe and a withh a nice KFC taste as well.
