Storage Know-How

This bread tastes great even the day after it's been baked! Be sure to cool it completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap. Store overnight at room temperature and you've got a fresh, tasty treat the next morning!

Oven Fried Crunch Parmesan Chicken

1/3 cup flour

1 tsp. salt

Dash of pepper

1 broiler-fryer chicken (3 lb.), cut up

1 egg, lightly beaten

2 Tbsp. water

1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese

1/2 cup crushed corn flakes

2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Mix flour and seasonings in shallow dish. Add chicken; toss to coat. Beat egg and water in separate shallow dish. Mix cheese and corn flakes in third shallow dish.

DIP chicken in egg mixture, then in cheese mixture, turning over to evenly coat both sides. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish; drizzle with butter.

BAKE 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through (180°F).

Holiday Churros

1 cup water

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup flour

1 cup honey-flavored multi-grain cereal flakes with oat clusters, finely ground

1/4 cup PLANTERS Pecan Pieces, finely ground

3 eggs

2 cups oil

1/3 cup cinnamon sugar

Make It!

BRING water, butter and salt to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in flour. Reduce heat to low; cook 1 min. or until mixture forms a ball, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Remove from heat; stir in cereal and pecans until well blended. Place in medium bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with electric mixer on medium speed after each addition until well blended.

HEAT oil in medium skillet to 350ºF. Spoon cereal mixture into heavy-weight pastry bag fitted with large star tip. (Or spoon into a cake decorator's tube fitted with star tip.) Carefully squeeze three or four 3-inch-long strips of dough into hot oil. Cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown on both sides, turning after 1 min. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough.

ROLL in cinnamon sugar while still hot. Serve warm.

Rice Krispie Waffles

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup rice krispies
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Preheat traditional waffle iron to medium. Meanwhile, stir flour, rice krispies, cornstarch, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in large bowl. Whisk egg yolks, milk, vanilla, and oil together in medium bowl.
With electric mixer of balloon whisk, beat egg whites in bowl to soft peaks. Pour milk mixture over dry ingredients and whisk until combined. Whisk in beaten whites until just combined. Do not over mix; a few streaks of whites should be visible.
Pour 2/3 cup batter into center of preheated waffle iron and use back of dinner spoon to spread batter toward outer edges (batter should reach about 1/2 inch from edges of iron before closing lid). Close lid and cook until deep golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
