PACK SIXTEEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MARCH 31,1965 Here's Writer's Idea Of Perfect Lemon Pie By GAYNOK MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor. Ever since we walked through fragrant lemon groves in southern California, we've been search- Ing for the perfect lemon meringue pie recipe. We think we've found It. It comes from -a Los There Only Two In Your Family? Then You Can Make One Chicken Do for 3 Recipes By GAYN'OR MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor If there are only two in your family nnd yo.u warit chicken, listen to what Am) Williams - Heller tells us. She is author of many excellent cookbooks and an outstanding food authority. Here's what she says: "Yes, you can stretch 1 one chicken over two ample meals if you select a larger frying or roasting chicken (about' S 1 ^ to 4 pounds). Fryers of such weight may be too heavy for "classical" frying yet too lean for roasting. We offer two ways to serve them at consecutive meals with different taste and appearance, yet with equal juicy tenderness. "Select a plump chicken about 3Va to 4 pounds ready - to - cook weight. Have butcher cut it in 4 or 8 pieces as you desire; smaller pieces cook faster, make larger servings. Use heart, gizzard and neck for soup. The liver when chopped and sauteed and seasoned fragrantly with a few sprigs of chopped parsley, may go into an omelet." First Meal: .Steam-Fried Chicken Use a heavy lOVz - inch skillet •with tight - fitting cover or dome cover. Place one - haif the chicken (K or 4 pieces according to cut) in skillet; add about 1 cup of water and about 1 teaspoon salt; cover and simmer chicken over low heat until tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Drain chicken; reserve any leftover liquid for soup or gravy. Roll each chicken piece in well- ssasoned flour; shake off excess flour. Heat about */% cup fat (lard or vegetable shortening) in skillet, and brown chicken quickly on all sides over moderate heat. Use above liquid as part of milk if you want to serve the chicken with gravy. Second Meal: Fricasseed Chicken Use second half of chicken. Heat 4 tablespoons of fat or lard in heavy (10^4 - Inch) skillet with tight - fitting cover or dome cov er. Brown chicken on all sides (about IB minutes) turning frequently; add 1 medium onion, finely sliced, 1 scraped carrot, diced,' and l'/ a cups water lor wine if desired). Cover tightly and simmer over low heat until chicken is tender, about 30 to 4,0 minutes. Season to taste with very little salt and a dash of ginger and-or nutmeg. Thicken gravy with flour or cornstarch as desired. Note: Refrigerate second half pf chicken for later use, loosely covered. If you store in freezer, keep chicken frozen until ready to use and defrost before cooking. Angeles test kitchen.

Then they'll enjoy this new morning suggestion for good eating. Or if you need to win over the members of your family to hnve a nutritious morning meal, this menu will help. We are always coming on studies that confirm our own observations -boys and girls need to improve their breakfast habits, - There's less mid and late morning fatigue at school when the first meal of the day supplies from one-fourth to one-third of the day's allowance of calories and protein. Many grown men and women, too, neglect breakfast; studies show that they would probably increase their work efficiency if they ate a good breakfast. Vary your breakfast menus as you can. If you plan them the day before you'll be a step ahead, some families like to set the breakfast table the night before— a good idea if your living space, and your temperament, adapt to this. Try this menu during the week, if you like, or reserve it for Sat- Chicken With Tomato Curry Sauce Good Skillet chicken in a rich sauce is company fare. Ingredients: 1 frying chicken (2'/2 to 3 pounds ready-to-cook weight), 3 tablespoons olive oil, '/•> cup finely diced onion, V 3 cup finely diced green pepper, 1 large or 2 small cloves garlic, l'/4 teaspoons salt, M> teaspoon pepper, l'/2 teaspoons curry powder, V 2 teaspoon dried crushed thyme, 1 can (1 pound* tomatoes. i Method: Have chicken quar- j tercel; then have wings separated from breast meat, legs from second joints. (Save neck and giblets for stock and liver for use another time). Wash and dry chicken pieces. Heat oil in 12-inch skillet; add chicken and arrange in oil carefully because it may sputter. Have heat high enough to brown chicken well on all sides. Remove chicken; add onion, green pepper, garlic, salt, pepper, curry powder and thyme to skillet. Cook several minutes, stirring over moderately low heat. Stir in tomatoes, including liquid from can. Return chicken to skillet. Bring quickly to boil; cover and simmer (do not boil) until chicken is tender — about 45 -minutes. Serve with steamed rice mixed with chopped pecans and currants that have been rinsed in hot water. Makes 4 servings. urday or Sunday brunch. , DELICIOUS BREAKFAST Broiled Fresh Pears Scrambled Eggs with Bucon Hot Cinnamon Rolls Beverage The Broiled Fresh Pears are, of course, the piece de resistance of this breakfast. Everyone who has tasted them at our house — where we are likely to serve them as a luncheon or supper dessert as well as for a brunch specialty — has pronounced them delectable. Buy ripe Anjou pears for this recipe and determine the ripeness by a fingertip test rather than by their color. # the pear "gives" a bit when you press it lightly with thumb and forefinger, it's ready to use. The eggs and bacon on the menu may be cooked on top of the range; or they may be baked or broiled. Take your choice! For the Cinnamon Rolls we recommend the kind that come in a small refrigerator-stored package and need only to be put in the oven. These rolls are one of the very best of the new food products —in fact they are out of this world! BROILED FRESH PEARS Ingredients: 4 ripe Anjou pears, 8 teaspcons strained honey, mace, half-and-half cream. Method: Remove skin from pears and cut each in half. Remove seeds by scooping them out with a half-teaspoon measuring spoon; ;ut out stem structure with small sharp knife. Pill pear cavities with honey, spreading a little over cut top surfaces. Sprinkle each pear lightly with mace. Broil 4 inches from high heat 10 minutes — until pears are touched with brown on top and heated through. Serve 1 or 2 psar halves to each portion. Accompany pears with a mixture of half heavy cream and half homogenized milk; or use light or medium cream.
