This beautiful spread is from the 1952 “250 Ways to Prepare Poultry” cookbook. At first I didn’t recognize the roasted bird as a chicken, because I guess this is what a chicken looks like when it’s not shot up with hormones and antibitotics, and not fed with genetically altered super-corn. Kinda scrawny! But, it probably tastes a lot better because it’s the way nature intended — not scientists at ChickenCorp, Inc.
Anyway, the other barf-inducing dish is Chicken Salad – which should make you wince if you’ve ever gotten food poisoning from any sort of mayonnaise-infused cuisine. It’s looking a little gray to me, which is probably not a good sign for chicken salad. (Maybe it’s back to those chicken hormones.)
And, of course, nothing goes better with chicken or chicken salad that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — right?
