This recipe is one of my daughter Amy's favorite dinner requests. Serve with confetti rice made by tossing cooked rice with butter, salt, chopped red and green pepper; and a sliced orange, onion-ring and lettuce salad, laced with poppy seed dressing.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
1 frying chicken, 3 pounds, cut into serving pieces
¼ cup ground mild red chile
1 teaspoon ground Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1. Lightly oil a large flat baking dish.
2. Place chicken pieces in a single layer in the pan. Combine the other ingredients and sprinkle half over the chicken. Bake uncovered at 375 F. for 30 minutes.
3. Turn each chicken piece over and sprinkle with remaining seasoning mix. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Spoon drippings over the chicken before serving.
