The Glamorous Chicken

March 8, 2017

Still thinking of Charleston, I find myself poring through Southern cookbooks seeking out the spirit of that food. People EAT there!  Only in the south would leftover chicken be considered glamorous.

This recipes is from Virginia Cooking Past and Present, by the Woman’s Auxiliary of Olivet Episcopal Church in Franconia, Virginia.  I’m not sure I’ll be making this recipe anytime soon, but it does make me smile.

As does this incredible account of the original salamander (hint: not electric) and several historical chicken pot pies. Wouldn’t you like to try Mrs. Washington’s candied lettuce stalks?
