Slap Ya Mama Oven Fried Chicken and Slap Ya Mama Country Gravy



Slap Ya Mama Oven Fried Chicken and Slap Ya Mama Country Gravy
By Susan Whempner

My husband says this is the best oven-fried chicken I have ever made!

The Chicken:

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama Original Cajun Seasoning, plus extra for sprinkling
2 1/2 to 3 pounds of your favorite chicken pieces (I used drumsticks and thighs)

Preheat oven to 425. 

Combine flour and SYM seasoning in a big Ziploc bag. Coat chicken pieces by shaking them in the flour mixture. Place floured chicken pieces on a plate and sprinkle both sides with a little more SYM seasoning.  Put butter in 13x9x2 inch pan and pop in the oven until it melts. Place chicken pieces, skin side down, in pan. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Turn chicken over and bake until thickest pieces are done, about 30 more minutes.

The Gravy:

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama Original Cajun Seasoning

In a saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add flour, and whisk for about a minute. Slowly pour in chicken broth and milk (keep whisking) and then add the Slap Ya Mama seasoning. Continue cooking over medium heat until thickened. When chicken is done you can add some drippings if desired. Serve over mashed potatoes or biscuits and enjoy!
