I love fall weather. It is crisp and fresh. It makes you want to put on a warm, soft sweater and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. This weather also gets me in the mood to bake and cook more.
Tonight I think I am going to make Golden Chicken Bake. I found this recipe years ago from the cookbook “Where’s Mom Now That I Need Her.” I got the book as a high school graduation gift. Here is the recipe:
- 1 cup biscuit mix
- 1 tsp salt
- 1.5 tsp paprika
- dash pepper
- 1 fryer chicken, cut up (Zweber Farms’ chicken is the best)
- 1/2 cup butter (use Organic Valley if you have it)
Combine biscuit mix, salt, paprika and pepper in a paper bag; one at a time, put chicken pieces in bag and shake to coat. Melt butter in baking dish; arrange chicken pieces in dish. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 1 hour, reducing heat to 375 for the last 10 minutes. Juices should run clear when done. You may want to cover with tin foil if the chicken is getting too brown.
Just boil some potatoes to mash, serve with a salad and a cold glass of Organic Valley milk.
Fun Farm Fact: Chickens are not vegetarians. If given the choice, chickens will eat insects and worms. Wild chickens are even known to eat small lizards. The chickens at Zweber Farms, have access to pasture grasses where they can dig and peck for insects and worms naturally. They are also feed a diet of grain and grit to balance their nutrition and help with digestion.
