Oven-fried chicken is a favorite of Mickey Strang's because it can be served warm or cold. She livened up this version with sharp cheddar cheese and ancho chili powder. Have a whole chicken cut into pieces at the meat market, or buy 3 3/4 pounds breast, leg, and thigh pieces. As a quicker alternative to making your own bread crumbs, use 1 1/2 cups purchased dried bread crumbs.
