Recipe Book
Chicken

This section contains a selection of traditional recipes for chicken.  All recipes, unless noted otherwise, are genuine Kentucky and Southern recipes over 100 years old. They would have been familiar to the early residents of Old Louisville

 

To Fry Chicken.

Cut up the chicken and put in cold water with a little salt; let stay 1 hour, then wash off in clear water. Dip pieces of chicken in sifted flour with plenty of black pepper. Have hot lard in a skillet; fry a light brown. Make a biscuit dough and cut in long straight pieces and cook.

To Make the Gravy

When the chicken is done take out and put in the skillet 1 tablespoon of flour; when it is well mixed add 1 cup sweet milk, salt and pepper, stirring all the while. This is to be served with the chicken.
