Minnesota Cooking: Baked Chicken the Lazy Way

Updated on June 30, 2016

Mowing Day

You know how grandma used to have laundry day? Well, I have lawndry day. [this is where we giggle together]

Any way, to make a long story short, she used to make some sort of a casserole that would cook while she did laundry. You know, back when you used a wringer washing machine and you ran everything through the washer and wringer. If you go back further, I suppose, they went down to the river and used a wash board, but that is an entirely different family.

So, this is what I made while I cut the lawn, hence the word lawn-dry.

Baked Chicken

I had some frozen chicken legs and the instructions said to cook from frozen. Chicken legs are not very flavorful unless you coat them with flavorings.

When I fry chicken, I use Fry Magic seasoned coating mix. I wasn't going to fry them, and followed the baking instructions. 375 degrees, one hour until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

I got out a flat baking sheet, and coated it with a sheet of aluminum foil. I poured some Lawry's Teriyaki with Pineapple Marinade on the aluminum foil in six spots. I had six legs. I rinsed the chicken with some water and rolled them in the Fry Magic and placed each one on the sheet, making sure each one was laying in a puddle of Marinade

I used the rest of the marinade on top of each piece. Then, I sprinkled poultry seasoning on each piece and sprinkled Magic Seasoning mix on each one.

Then, popped the pan into the oven and set my timer for one hour and 20 minutes.

About an Hour Later

I came back into the house after taking photos of things in my yard. I got a little carried away. I took 150 pictures.

My chicken was done. The timer was beeping. I think I missed my timer by ten extra minutes. The chicken was done. If I would have taken four more pictures, I wouldn't be able to write this page. So, lucky me!!!

The temperature probe said 172 degrees and I took the pan out of the oven. It was hot and I had to let it cool briefly, and then I tried a bite.

It was very delicious. Moist. Flavorful.
