A 300-Year-Old Recipe for Fried Chicken

You might think that Harlan Sanders invented fried chicken, or maybe some guy named Church or Popeye instead, but you'd be wrong.

Fried chicken has existed in one form or another for millennia; Asians were probably first to 'fry' chicken. But those early historical versions are far removed from what we see - and expect - today.

I'm going to share with you a 300 year old recipe from England found in a gem of a “household tips” book written by Nathan Bailey, called “Dictionarium Domesticum.” This site gives that recipe and a lot of the story behind it. There are undoubtedly countless varieties of fried chicken recipes found in every corner of the globe (who am I kidding?; Miss Cellania probably has hundreds herself), but Nathan Bailey’s 300 year old recipe is currently sweeping the internet, so don't be left out!
