Recipes For This Meal Plan:
This easy oven fried chicken recipe with biscuits is super tasty! The recipe is wonderful because of how the frying chicken flavors the biscuits, but you can just make the fried chicken if you like. I make it both ways and my family loves it!
Once I realized how easy it is to make this oven fried chicken, I started making it a lot more often. It’s a great way to please the hungry family when I’m not feeling that great and I don’t feel like doing a lot of extra work. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare and then I can leave it to bake while I do other things.
If you want to feed a larger group, you can easily double or triple this recipe. My husband and teenagers love it so I often make a larger batch. If there’s any chicken left over, it’s easy for them to warm it up in the microwave or air fryer for a quick lunch. Air frying the chicken leftovers give then the same oven fried chicken crispiness!
Oven Fried Chicken Recipe with Biscuits
This easy oven fried chicken recipe with biscuits is a super easy way to make yummy fried chicken your family will love! It’s a cheap and easy meal and my teenagers love it so much, they always ask for more!
This recipe is from our Dining On A Dime Cookbook, Volume 2.
4 –5 Tbsp. margarine (not butter)
1/2 cup baking mix
4–6 pieces of chicken
Salt and pepper
1 can refrigerator biscuits
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Melt margarine in a 9×13 inch pan.
- Pour baking mix on a plate or in a plastic bag.
- Roll chicken in the margarine, then into the baking mix.
- Place back into the pan.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake for about 45 minutes, until the juices run clear.
- About 5-10 minutes before the chicken is done, push the pieces of chicken tightly against one side of the pan and lay biscuits into the pan on the opposite side.
- Finish baking until the biscuits are brown.
It’s okay to lay the biscuits in the margarine and all in the bottom of the pan. That makes the biscuits margarine soaked and crispy. Oh, yum!
You can serve virtually anything with this easy oven fried chicken recipe. Since it already includes the biscuits, I will usually throw a vegetable like broccoli, mixed vegetables or green beans (We prefer French cut if we can find them) in the microwave when the fried chicken is finishing because it’s so easy. If I don’t end up making the biscuits, sometimes I will serve rice in their place along with a vegetable.
The following recipes also go well with the oven fried chicken recipe. They are part of the easy meal plan we have included above.
