Elizabeth's Oven Baked Chicken

2 cups cornflake crumbs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Accent*
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt or powder
1/2 teaspoon Lawry's seasoned salt
1 chicken, cut up
1 can evaporated milk
Melted butter or margarine

Mix dry ingredients well. Dip chicken pieces in evaporated milk; coat with flour mixture, and brush with melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until tender.

*Accent is monosodium glutamate. A few people are deathly allergic to it. I recommend omitting it altogether and adding other assorted seasonings, such as garlic powder or flavored pepper.

This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, Elizabeth Netz. It's a sized-down recipe from the Laurel Club. The Laurel Club is a volunteer group of ladies who cook for banquets and other events at the RLDS Auditorium in Independence, MO. Elizabeth worked in that group for many years.

This breading can also be used for tenderloins.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
