Mom's Baked Chicken from Mrs. Santa!

Well! Look what I found tucked away in my mom's tattered old recipe box. Well worn and loved. This was something she made all the time and many people loved it. It was a regularly requested recipe and no family function could pass without it. It is very old fashioned with few ingredients.

(I must confess I do plan on "tweaking" it a bit myself to add in extra seasonings that I particularly love, like marjoram, rosemary, a dash of Italian seasoning. But I am a bit heavy handed and lean towards Irish cooking where everything goes in the pot but the kitchen sink. However, considering I have heard other Mrs. Santa's across the continents do the same thing, it just be the savvy thing to do to feed many mouths and satisfy many hungry bellies!)  


  1. Put 2 cups flour, pepper, thyme, sage, poultry seasoning, etc in a bag and shake to mix.
  2. Put about 6 pieces of cut-up, cleaned chicken in bag and shake to coat, at a time.
  3. Melt 1 stick oleo in pan in oven until melted.
  4. Add chicken pieces, cut up onion over it.
  5. Bake at 425 for 1/2 hour, then turn pieces of chicken over and bake another 1/2 hour.
