A friend of mine always uses her el cheapo 20-30 dollar toaster ovens. She de-crumbs, wipes them out, but doesn't scrub them. When she can't see through the glass anymore, she throws them away and buys new ones.

I'm just now using my new oven to reheat for the first time. Some General Tso Chicken I got at Safeway, lazy me today. But when that oven says it's a certain temperature it is right on!! So pleased about that!!

Your friend is a hoot Rose :biggrin-new: Keep it simple is her motto, and I like that idea :)

I'd take that recipe Liberty?? I especially love thighs and legs, and I do like a sauce I make using Russian Dressing, but some crispy chicken sounds good for a change ;) especially Southern Fried :)

Ok Denise, this is the Oven Baked Southern Fried Chicken Recipe:

1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Creole Seasoning (or Cajun Seasonings like Zatarain's
4 bone in chicken thighs (or large chicken legs)

Preheat Oven to 400°. Pour butter into cookie sheet or baking pan.
Whisk all dry ingredients together. Coat chicken in buttermilk, then
coat with flour mixture - place 2" apart on pan. Bake uncovered for
30 min. Turn, and bake for 15 minutes more until chicken is brown
and juices run clear.

Note: 1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs and 1/2 cup flour may be used in
place of 1 cup flour if desired.

Guess what I got today, bone in thighs with legs, I mean attached!! It was meant to be!! Not tonight but I will be trying this before end of week. I need to find the Cajun seasoning, which, I've NEVER tried, but if it's anything I am getting more and more open to, it's trying new things :)

Thanks so much Liberty, I'll keep you posted, denise

Yes Denise...the seasoning adds flavor without making it "hot". If you like your food salty you can add some extra salt if you want to (or not)...lol. Its a fav recipe of ours. Usually freeze some pieces if I make a big pan of it in the large oven. Its a lot
like the old fashioned cast iron skillet southern chicken.

Have got a ton of recipes from being in the biz professionally if you ever need something odd and tasty!
