Baked Chicken

Hi All--
Just had to share this recipe with you that we had tonight....

1 whole chicken cut in half
(I cheated and used an already cut up chicken)
1 onion
1 small bellpepper, if you want (I didn't use it)

Take the chicken, salt and pepper it, place in glass baking dish with about 1/2 cup water and chopped onion and peppers on top, then bake at 350° until golden, turn the pieces over and bake again until golden. That took about 45 minutes, but can vary depending on your chicken and your oven. At this point, add a little more water (as much gravy as you would want), then in a small cup, mix together a little flour and water and add to the dish. Cover with foil and continue to bake until the chicken falls off the bone. (Also to speed things up a little, I turned the heat up to 400°)...the total time it took was about 2 to 2 1/2 hours, but it was so good. The meat was so tender and juicy and the gravy was awesome!! I served it with mashed potatoes, salad, and rolls. YUM YUM...oh and we had some leftover stuffing from Christmas that we used....this is a keeper, especially for those really cold days!!!!!!! Kids and hubby gave it a 5......there were NO leftovers on this one ladies!!!
