Oven Fried Chicken Drumsticks

My oldest son has recently discovered that he loves fried chicken.  I decided to test out a recipe for oven fried chicken to see if it would pass the test, as buying a bucket of it from the grocery store is quite expensive!  After searching for a bit, I found a recipe for "Better-Than-KFC" chicken and decided to give it a try.  The end result?  It passed the test, though we all wished it were a bit crispier.  I will admit, though, my house did smell like KFC, but the chicken tasted better!

Better-Than-KFC Oven Fried Chicken
Recipe from:  Adapted from Clarks Condensed

1/2 c. butter
8-12 drumsticks
1 1/2 c. flour
1 t. pepper
2 t. paprika
1 1/2 c. milk

Soak chicken in milk for at least 30 minutes.  Longer, up to 3 hours, is better.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the butter into 8-10 pieces and place around a 9x13 dish.  Melt in oven while preparing the chicken.  Mix together flour, pepper, and paprika in a large bowl.  Take a drumstick, shake off excess milk, and dredge in flour mixture.  Bake for 20 minutes, flip each piece, and bake for another 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
