Oven Fried Chicken

This is one of my “go to” meals.  In fact, I share this recipe on a regular basis at our store.  We celebrated our son’s Birthday last weekend.  The weather was a little iffy so we opted for cooking inside.  You can’t help but feel the love when you share this meal with family.  You can make baked potatoes and salad or pair with your favorite Herold’s Salad for a wonderful summer meal.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

4 Whole Chicken Breasts with skin and bones (split so you have 8 breasts) (available at your local meat market)
1 cup of Runion’s Mix (available at your local butcher shop)
2 TBLS Rotisserie Chicken BBQ Rub (available at your local meat market)
2 TBLS Butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Moisten chicken breasts and shake off excess water
Combine Runion’s Mix, and BBQ Rub in a Ziplock bag and shake
Add chicken one piece at a time and coat with the Runion/Seasoning mixture

Put butter on a cookie sheet (with at least 1 inch edge), place in preheated oven and melt the butter.
After butter is melted, place chicken (fat side down) on the cookie sheet
Bake for 35 minutes, turn and bake for additional 20 minutes

For boneless, skinless chicken breasts decrease cooking time to 20 minutes per side.

Be sure to pick up your very own copy of this recipe the next time you are in the store.

Until next time…From our Butcher Block to your Table.

Oven Fried Chicken

This is such a gloomy day in May. I am feeling the need for some comfort food. I don’t have to go too far to feel the “love” when I make oven fried chicken. Put potatoes in the oven, make a salad and you have a meal fit for a king–or at least a Butcher and his wife.

Ingredients

4 Whole Chicken Breasts with skin and bones (split so you have 8 breasts)
1 cup of Runion’s Mix
2 TBLS Rotisserie Chicken BBQ Rub
2 TBLS Butter

Combine Runion’s Mix, and BBQ Rub in a Ziplock bag and shake
Add chicken one piece at a time and coat with the Runion/Seasoning mixture

Put butter on a cookie sheet (with at least 1 inch edge), place in preheated oven and melt the butter.

Super Wings

Superbowl is Sunday. Maybe you have forgotten or maybe you are caught up in the frenzy–either way, good eats are a necessary part of the ritual. Wings are always a popular choice, and I am going to show you how to cook them so you are relaxed and able to enjoy the party. Mauri-1

Super Wings

5 pounds of whole wings (cut off the tips and discard, cut the remainder into 2 pieces) or 5 pounds of Party Wings available at your local butcher
1 to 2 bottles of hot sauce (Walnut Creek brand or Moore’s Wing Sauce)
8 to 12 ounces of Runion’s Mix (Available at your local meat market)
8 Tablespoons of butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Take wings and moisten with hot sauce. Shake off excess moisture. Add Runion’s Mix to a clean gallon Ziplock bag. Add several moistened wings at a time and shake in the bag to coat the wings. Put the dusted wings on a paper towel and continue until all of the wings are coated. If the bag gets messy, you may have to start over with a clean bag and additional Runion’s Mix.

Take 2 baking sheets with a one inch lip on them. cut up butter into tablespoon size and put 4 tablespoons on each baking sheet. Put the baking sheets in the preheated oven and allow the butter to melt. Carefully pull out the oven racks and place the prepared wings on the sizzling butter. Fill both pans. Cook for 25 minutes, turn and cook for an additional 20 minutes.wings

Your wings will be crispy and delicious and best of all, no one has to stand over the stove frying wings to appease your hungry crowd.

For a dipping sauce, take hot sauce or wing sauce, add butter and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds. This will make a rich sauce to compliment your wings.

Until next time…From our Butcher Block to your Table.
