Going-to-Church Chicken

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
6 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 lb. mushrooms, thinly sliced
3 whole chicken breasts (about 10 o. each, halved)
1 broiler-fryer (3 1/2 lb. approx) , cut up
Paprika, pepper

Melt butter in shallow roasting pan large enough to hold it in one layer. Spoon over and reserve 2 Tbps. melted butter in pan. Saute mushrooms in this. Arrange chicken in single layer. Turn over in butter and mix, so all sides are coated. Spoon mushrooms over chicken. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika. Cover pan with foil. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, then 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Use drippings for sauce.
