COOKING WITH CLORIS -- MARGARITA CHICKEN

Cloris offers another one of her great chicken recipes today, perfect for when the supermarket has legs and wings on sale. Personally, I think it goes best with an icy cold Margarita (I like mine one the rocks with salt), but it tastes just as delicious with any beverage -- alcoholic or otherwise. Don’t want to heat up the chicken? Cook the chicken outdoors on your grill. -- AP

Ingredients:
4 lbs. cut up chicken

Oh good, another new way to cook chicken. We are big chicken eaters here. My favorite way to cook it is to coat the chicken with ranch dressing, dredge with Italian bread crumbs and bake in the oven.

That sounds yummy, Kathy. I'll have to give it a try with low fat ranch dressing and whole wheat bread crumbs.
