Combine first 4 ingredients. Work into chicken pieces. Allow to dry for a few minutes. Save unused flour mixture for gravy, if desired.
Brown chicken in about 1/2 inch of oil. Place browned chicken in shallow baking pan. Do not stack or crowd. Use 2 pans if necessary. Mix melted butter and milk, and drizzle over chicken. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender. If pieces look dry during baking, pour milk on them.
