Amish Baked chicken that tastes like fried
Okay, you can visit your local Colonel Sanders if you want chicken in a hurry, or you can try this Amish recipe. But I hope you aren't in too big if a hurry because this takes 4 - 5 hours to bake. So I can't, for the life of me, figure out why it is called "chicken in a hurry" unless it is just a tongue-in-cheek title. Sometimes, with Amish recipes, the names are as just as good as the food.
This recipe comes to us from an Amish woman in Plain City, Ohio. Geez, again, I hope you aren't in a hurry. If you aren't in a hurry, then I'm sure this will be delicious and I'd highly recommend giving it a try!
Actually, though, the meal is super fast to prepare...so that is probably the genesis of the name. It literally takes 5 minutes, so you can prepare it and focus on other stuff. If you have a slow-cooker, use that. But she says you can also bake in a 9 X 13 inch baking dish at 325 for 2 hours. Again, not exactly a rush job,but it is the prep that is quick. Enjoy!
