For our family, it's not a picnic unless there's fried chicken! Chicken, deviled eggs and potato salad are all "musts" for a picnic as far as my husband is concerned.
This is a "Golden Oldie" recipe for me—I've used it any number of times, both for leisure time picnics and as part of a meal I pack and take out to the field for my grain farmer.
I enjoy cooking, especially giving a recipe a couple of tries and adjusting it or throwing it out. I always remember back to the way Mom or
Purchased sweet-and-sour sauce takes the work out of preparing this traditional dish, which tastes very much like the takeout version. “Before we were married, my husband surprised me by cooking this after a long day at work,” recalls Holly Tittel of Great Bend, Kansas.
I was never impressed with the fried chicken recipes I'd tried, but then I started to experiment and came up with one that my whole family loves. Once you taste it, you'll know why! —Samantha Pazdernik, Breckenridge, MN
My family has always enjoyed Thai food, but we really love chicken curry. Since we have a two-year-old son, I wanted to make something that he would eat.
