Easy Shake-n-bake Chicken

All you have to do is combine these in a bag...

shake your chicken in it, and bake it to get this....

As you can see, we prefer chicken legs...
But it's also because they come in 4 packs, and if we got other pieces it'd be way too much for 2 of us.
TA-DAH! Simple.

Here's the recipe I used, once again original from  I halved everything and estimated the 1/8 tsp amounts, and also used less salt.  I also added the garlic and onion powder.  Some of the reviewers said it's good without putting butter on before putting in the spice mixture... so I did 2 legs rubbed in olive oil and then in the spice mixture, and 2 with nothing but the spices so that we could compare.  Nick and I vote for definitely using olive oil or butter before putting it in the spices- the skin tastes SO much better.

Easy Shake n bake chicken:

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 sage
1/4 black pepper
couple shakes garlic powder
and onion powder
olive oil or 1/2 cup melted butter

Prepare flour and spices by dumping in a large ziploc bag.  Rub chicken pieces with olive oil or melted butter.  Toss them in a bag with the spices.  Shake... then move to a pan... and bake.
