Big Mama's Kitchen - Oven Fried Chicken
- Big Mama's Rub:
- 4 cups white sugar
- 1/4 cup chili powder
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons ground celery seed
- 2 tablespoons smoked hickory salt
- 1/4 cup meat tenderizer
- 1/4 cup salt
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 10 pieces fresh chicken, desired bone-in parts
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper
- 1 teaspoon no-salt seasoning
- Big Mama's Rub
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- Canola oil, for frying
Place all ingredients into a resealable container and mix until thoroughly combined.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cover each piece of chicken in buttermilk, then lemon-pepper, no-salt seasoning and Big Mama's Rub, to taste. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator overnight so that the meat can absorb some of the liquid.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and dredge in self-rising flour.
Fry the chicken in a 1/2-inch of canola oil in the bottom of a roasting pan in the preheated oven. Fry the chicken for 15 minutes per side
