TERRE HAUTE — When my brother Gary’s wife got breast cancer, he needed something he could fix ahead of time to throw into the oven when it was time to fix supper after Kathy’s treatments.

If you like fried chicken, you’ll like it this way.

Add salad, vegetables, whatever you like. Gary is a good cook.

My boys are like my brothers, they throw together spices or whatever. Thanks, Gary.

2⁄3 cup flour or Bisquick

1 1⁄2 teaspoon Paprika (opt)
