We’ve been in love with fried chicken since the time we knew how to walk. Beneath the layer of extra crispy, beautifully-seasoned skin is a juicy piece of poultry that’s waiting to be chomped upon. In the (hopefully) unlikely event that we were somehow marooned back in the 18th century, we need a way to make our beloved fried chicken with very limited technology.
Luckily, Jas. Townsend and Son, Inc., a group known for accurately recreating things from the 18th century, has just the recipe for some old-school fried chicken. They dug up a centuries-old method of making fried chicken from a historic recipe book they found.
