Spicy Oven-Fried Chicken

1/3 c vegetable oil
1/3 c butter
1/2 c ap flour
1/2 c cracker meal
1/2 c cornmeal
1 tsp garlic powder (the cookbook calls for 1 1/2 tsp easy garlic salt - recipe from the cookbook)
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp ground sage
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes
4 lbs chicken pieces (legs, thighs, breast halves), approx. 14 pieces

Combine oil & butter in shallow cooking pan (jelly-roll). Place in oven set to 375 degrees F to melt. Set aside.

In a bag, combine flour, cracker meal, cornmeal, & seasonings. Roll chicken in melted butter and drop in bag to coat.

Place coated chicken in the pan. Bake 45 min, turn and bake 5 - 10 min longer, or until top crust begins to bubble. serve hot or cold. Crust texture is better if chicken hasn't been refrigerated before eating. 

This is the fried chicken recipe that I have been looking for my whole life! I found this great recipe in New Recipes From Quilt Country by Marcia Adams.
