Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Amish Chicken

An easy dinner is one thing we all love, right? Well this dish really couldn’t get much easier. Plus it makes its own sauce while it’s baking so all you need is some rice or pasta to go along with it. I’m not sure where the name of this recipe came from but if it is from the Amish, then those people know what they’re doing because this is good! The chicken is crispy and the sauce is flavorful and you can use any chicken pieces you want. I used thighs. Seriously guys, super yummy!

Amish Chicken
4 - 6 chicken thighs ~ skin on
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x11 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Stir together the chicken stock and heavy cream.
In a shallow bowl or pie plate, combine the flour and seasonings until mixed.
Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture and place in the prepared pan.
Pour the broth/cream mixture over the chicken and allow to bake for 1 - 1 1/2 hours or until skin is golden brown.
Serve over noodles or rice.

Okay...let's cook the easiest dinner ever!

Combine the flour and the seasonings.

Then dredge the chicken in the flour. Don't be stingy here...really coat it on!

Next mix together the chicken 
broth and the cream and pour 
it over the chicken.

Then bake! Now don't let the amount 
of fat scare you. You will have plenty 
of sauce in this dish...probably too much. A little bit goes a long way because it's 
so full of flavor.
