2 small frying chickens or about 20 legs and thighs

1 teaspoon of salt

crushed black pepper

1 cup of milk

1 teaspoon of white vinegar

1 package of Shake n Bake chicken mix (The package comes with 2 packets – use only 1)

1 and 1/2 cups of flavored bread crumbs

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of paprika

1 teaspoon of coriander

1 teaspoon of curry powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Olive oil Cooking Spray



Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Remove the back bone from the chickens and save for later use in soups and stocks. Cut the remaining chicken into 10 equal size pieces.

This should give you about 20 pieces.

Place the chicken into a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Add the milk and vinegar and let the chicken soak with the milk for at least 15 minutes or store in the refrigerator for later cooking.

Mix all other ingredients in a plastic bag. Place 2 pieces at a time in the bag and shake well to coat all the chicken.

Place the chicken on a large baking pan that has been heavenly coated with the olive oil spray.

Cook for 45 -60 minutes until the chicken is crispy.

*Do not turn over the chicken as it cooks! It will become crispy on its own!
