Raspberry Chicken
Maija-Liisa N. Adams

To broil 5-6 inches from the flame, place chicken directly in broiler pan without the rack --

1 2.5-3 lb. broiler fryer chicken, cut up or your favorite pieces of chicken
vegetable oil
1 10 oz. package frozen red raspberries (quick-thaw pouch)
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat broiler. Brush chicken with oil. Season with some salt and pepper. Place chicken, skin side down or remove skin, on broiler rack. Broil 5-6 inches from heat 20 minutes or until browned; turn. Broil 10 minutes more. Meanwhile, thaw raspberries; drain, reserving syrup. If the package of raspberries you bought didn't produce any syrup, use a little bit of raspberry jam and water as the base. In saucepan blend syrup into cornstarch; stir in cinnamon. Cook and stir until bubbly. Stir in butter and lemon juice. Gently stir in berries and nuts. Serve with chicken. Makes 4 servings.

Lindsey's Bread Sticks
Lindsey Dewey

1 loaf frozen Rhodes bread dough
1/2 stick butter
Parmesan cheese
Salad Supreme seasoning

At lunch time, place one loaf of frozen bread dough on a greased cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap that has also been sprayed with non-stick spray.

One hour before meal time, take the loaf and place it on a floured surface. Roll out flat. Using a pizza cutter, cut the loaf into 1/2-inch thick slices. Melt the butter. Take each strip and dip it into the butter. Twist the strip a few times and then place it on a cookie sheet. Place all of your twisted strips close to each other so that they are touching. Sprinkle the breadsticks with Parmesan cheese and Salad Supreme (or paprika). Let rise one more hour with plastic wrap covering the strips.

Heat your oven to 400 and bake the breadsticks for 10 minutes. Enjoy!
