    I recommend these two:

    Oven Fried Chicken

    ¼ t red pepper

    1 cup cornflakes crushed

    1 t paprika

    ½ t garlic powder

    ¼ t ground thyme

    ¼ cup buttermilk

    6 chicken breasts halved

    Combine 1st 5 ingredients in plastic bag. Skin breasts and brush both sides with buttermilk. Place chicken in bag of crumbs and shake to coat. Place chicken on broiler pan that has been sprayed with vegetable spray. Bake at 400° for 45 min. or until done. 6 servings. Other pieces of the chicken can be used for this recipe.

    Lightly brown ground meat. Thoroughly drain and use paper towel to absorb excess grease. Add all ingredients together except cheese and tomato. Sauce and peppers: stuff peppers equally with mixture. Place peppers upright in baking dish. Spoon tomato sauce evenly over peppers. Bake 45 min. at 325°. If desired, grated cheese can be sprinkled over peppers during last 10 min. of cooking time.

    Although many people find it intimidating, cooking a turkey is actually quite easy and is quite impressive when brought to the table during a holiday dinner.

    Since my grandmother passed away about eight years ago, our house has become the center for Christmas get-togethers. I have been cooking a turkey each year for that dinner and I never had a bad meal (although one year the bird was overcooked and so a bit dry). The hard part is in the preparation.

    If you are using a fresh turkey, buy it no more than 1-2 days in advance and keep it in the fridge. If frozen, you will need to thaw it at least a day in advance in the fridge, or in cold water (changing the water periodically).

    First, you have to remove the giblets and the neck from the cavity...(that's the first mistake some people have made is leaving those inside in wax paper or a plastic bag!)

    Clean out the turkey cavity with cold water and salt. You want to get rid of any blood or loose material that may be bad or give a bad taste.

    If you are stuffing the bird, you should have your stuffing ready, but DO NOT stuff the bird until you are ready to put it in the oven, otherwise harmful bacteria may soak into the bread and make you sick. If you are NOT stuffing the bird, you can still stick a whole onion, fresh herbs, and a few garlic cloves (or whatever you like) into the middle to add flavor.

    Preheat the oven to 325F and cook an unstuffed turkey at 15 minutes per pound, while a stuffed turkey needs more time (20-25 min per pound). Cover it with tinfoil to avoid it getting brown too early and drying out.

    I like to baste my turkey after the first hour of cooking using a mixture of chicken stock, orange juice, and white wine. I then start basting it every 30-40 minutes afterwards using the juices that are in the bottom of the roasting pan. In the last hour, take the tinfoil off and turn up the heat to 375F or 400F to get that golden brown skin on it.

    A meat thermometer stuck into the stuffing will show at least 165F when it is ready.

    You can also check out some good holiday ideas on www.foodtv.com. I looked there for some ideas of what to put in my stuffing.

    Happy holidays! Hope your dinner works out.

    CHICKEN MARSALA - In first frying pan, Cut boneless chicken into chunks or strips, coat with flour and cook in butter until all sides just start to brown, set aside. In second frying pan, melt butter and add fresh sliced mushrooms (lots) and cook until they just start to soften, add generous amount of Marsala wine and a couple of finely diced garlic cloves and cook for three minutes. Add chicken from first pan and cook until sauce thickens (flour from chicken will thicken sauce), Add a small spritz more Marsala wine ( to refresh Marsala wine flavor) and serve immediately.
