I made this for our supper recently and we enjoyed it really well.
The seasoning combination on top of the chicken is really flavorful!

Southern Oven Fried Chicken Recipe

1 fryer chicken (about 3 lbs.) cut into pieces
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups Ritz cracker crumbs
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. sage
1/4 tsp. cumin

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Wash chicken pieces well and pat dry with paper towel. Melt butter in bowl. Place cracker crumbs on plate. Mix all seasonings together in small bowl.

Dip chicken pieces in butter and then roll in cracker crumbs; place chicken in prepared pan. Sprinkle chicken evenly with the seasoning mixture. Bake at 375 for about 55 minutes, until deep golden brown ad chicken juices run clear. You can turn chicken
pieces over half way through baking time, but it's not necessary.

The Cherry Delight recipe that Judy shared in the 7/22 newsletter is a dish that I have often made and it is always quickly eaten. You can use other flavors of pie filling in this recipe, but cherry is our family's favorite followed by blueberry.

Both of these recipes have been around for years and are always devoured when I make them. They are also frequently requested. Since they were based on the larger cake mixes I use one of the options for increasing the smaller cake mixes that have frequently been listed in the newsletter.

Baked Eggs in Avocado Recipe

1 ripe avocado
2 eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional toppings: red pepper flakes, fresh herbs, salsa

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Slice your avocado in half. Remove the seed by carefully hitting it with a large knife. Place each avocado half in a small ramekin so the avocado half stays up. Spoon out a little bit more of the avocado flesh to ensure the whole egg fits. Crack each egg in a small bowl. Using a spoon, carefully spoon the yolk into the hole in the avocado. Be careful not to break the yolk. Then add the remaining egg white. Bake the avocados for 15-20 minutes, watching them carefully. When the whites are set, they're done. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of the egg, and enjoy.
Yields: 1 or 2 servings, depending on how hungry you are

Creamy 3-ingredient, No Churn Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

This recipe is made to be a little less sweet than most traditional recipes, as it only uses about 1/4 the amount of sweetened condensed milk when compares to most recipes out there. You'll get plenty of sugar-rush from the chocolate syrup, but if you've got a sweet tooth, then add a little more sweetened condensed milk if you like. Adapted from
Nestle Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream.

2 cups (475ml) cold heavy whipping cream (cold)
1/4 cup (60ml) sweetened condensed milk (not to be confused with evaporated milk)
3/4 cup (180ml) chocolate syrup
(optional) pinch of sea salt

In large mixing bowl of stand-mixer or in a large bowl and using an electric hand mixer, add all the ingredients: heavy whipping cram, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate syrup and/or sea salt (optional). Whip the chocolate heavy cream mixture on high speed until stiff peaks form (to prevent massive splattering, start out at a slower speed and as the cream thickens, increase the speed). Be careful not to over mix or "break" the whip cream mixture. Pour the whipped mixture into a freezer safe container. We like to use a bread pan. Cover and freeze for about 4-5 hours. In about 3-4 hours you can have a "soft serve" type ice cream. If you prefer a more firm texture, freeze for at least 5-6 hours or overnight. Now eat and enjoy this creamy, luscious, delicious dessert!
