Amish Baked Chicken

Amish Baked Chicken
This is my NEW "Go To" recipe for chicken. We all love this chicken. It is juicy, flavorful, pretty simple, and Finger-Lickin' good!

I have made it for company (so you know it's good) and it never fails to impress.

Now I am going to give a disclaimer on this recipe: I bake it on a stone with sides (Pampered Chef: Bar Pan) so if you do not have a stone I have no idea how this chicken will turn out! For me, the skin is crunchy and flavorful and the chicken meat is juicy and tender. If you bake it in a pan or some other way please leave me a comment and let me know how it turns out.

Thanks so much to GE for leaving a comment and letting me know that using a baking sheet will work with this recipe! 

Used a baking sheet and it turned out moist and delicious. Next time we'll try boneless... And a stone pan! Thank you!!!

Amish Baked Chicken


Course: Main Course

Ingredients

  • 12 cup flour
  • 12 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs 
  • 3 bone-in chicken breasts 

Directions

In a medium bowl combine flour and spices. Whisk well.
Dredge chicken in flour mixture and then place on cooking stone, skin side down. I use two stones, one for the breasts and one for the thighs.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Flip chicken once, half-way through cooking. Mine always takes the full 60 minutes.

Verdict:
This chicken is AMAZING! Everyone loves it.
The breasts are moist and the thighs are perfect. Nothing in this recipe needs changed! Seriously, no matter what other "baked" chicken recipe I try my family always asks "When are we having Amish Chicken again?"
I have tried this recipe with boneless chicken and it just didn't taste right for some reason. It was still good but just not as good as we have come to expect. So I am going to stick with bone-in chicken. Which since that is cheaper in my area is a good thing!

I do not work for nor do I sell Pampered Chef. I just love their stones and use them every single day!

  2. Does the chicken juices drip onto the oven being that it's cooked on a flat stone?

  3. Mikeline,
    I actually have a baking stone with sides. It is called a bar pan and is almost like a cookie sheet. I will edit the post to include this information. You could NOT bake this chicken on a pizza stone, your oven would be a MESS!
    Thank you so much for your comment!

    1. Theresa, Please let me know what kind of a pan you used and how it turned out!

  5. Just wondering, would a pizza stone on a cookie sheet work? It sounds like it might be worth trying anyway. Maybe a large cast iron pan preheated in oven? May try to play with these ideas. Any advice you have would be great. It really does look wonderful. Debharris723@comcast.net

  6. I think that a pizza stone placed on a cookie sheet would work just fine. I have done that with my sausage roll (I should really post that recipe too) and it works great. I have NEVER cooked with cast iron before (I sure would love to try) so please if you do it that way let me know how it turns out!

    3. So glad that it turned out! I have tried the boneless chicken breasts and thighs before and it did taste good but I did not think it tasted as good as the bone-in chicken.
      Thanks so much for letting me know that it worked even without a stone pan! Good to know!

  11. What about butter, oil or grease? I want to try this but have a hard time thikinking it will cook up crispy without some type of "fat". I did not see any mentioned in the recipe. I have a similar recipe but you coat the chicken with melted butter first then the flour mixture. Thanks.

    1. I promise you if you follow the recipe (exactly) the chicken will be wonderful. I think the natural juices from the chicken are all the "fat" that you need. As I stated in my post though I bake mine on a stone so I have no idea (though others have commented that it turned out just as good using a regular pan) how it will be if you do not use a baking stone!
