Recipe: Roast Fowl

Clean and singe a five-pound fowl; stuff with Bread Stuffing, truss, place on a trivet in a pan suited to the size of the fowl, dredge with flour, cover with thin slices of fat salt PORK, and bake in a slow oven three hours, basting every fifteen minutes. Put into the pan the CHICKEN fat (which was removed when cleaning) and use for basting. Dredge with flour twice while cooking. Cook the giblets in boiling water one hour, and chop fine; make a gravy in the pan, allowing four tablespoons each of fat and flour, and the water in which giblets were cooked, with enough boiling water added to make two cups; season with salt and pepper, and add the giblets. If cooked slowly and basted often, a fowl will be as tender as a CHICKEN.

Recipe: Chicken Broth

Heat the broth in which the fowl for Sunday dinner was boiled, and when it is at the boiling point throw in quarter of a pound of rice, or fine macaroni, which will cost three or four cents, and boil it about twenty minutes, or until tender; see if the seasoning is right, and serve it hot.

Recipe: Fried Chicken

Dip the pieces of chicken saved from the Sunday dinner into a batter made according to the following receipt, and fry it a delicate brown color in quarter of a pound of olive oil or sweet drippings, or lard, (cost three cents,) heated until it is smoking hot. Before you begin to fry the chicken, wash one quart of potatoes, (cost three cents,) pare off a ring from each, and put them to boil in plenty of well salted boiling water. When the chicken is done take it up with a strainer, and lay it for a few minutes on brown paper to free it from fat; then serve it hot, with the boiled potatoes.

Recipe: Cooking of Giblets

As has been pointed out, the giblets–that is, the liver, heart, and gizzard of all kinds of fowl–are used in gravy making and as an ingredient for stuffing. When poultry is stewed, as in making stewed CHICKEN, it is not uncommon to cook the giblets with the pieces of CHICKEN. The gizzard and heart especially require long, slow cooking to make them tender enough to be eaten. Therefore, when poultry is broiled, fried, or roasted, some other cookery method must be resorted to, as these processes are too rigid for the preparation of giblets. In such cases, the best plan is to cook them in water until they are tender and then sauté them in butter. When cooked in this way, they may be served with the poultry, for to many persons they are very palatable.

Recipe: Chicken Bechamel

Still another CHICKEN dish that may be used to break the monotony of meals is CHICKEN bechamel, the word bechamel being the name of a Sauce invented by Béchamel, who was steward to Louis XIV, a king of France.


  •  1 good-sized CHICKEN
  •  2 tsp. salt
  •  1/4 tsp. pepper
  •  1 c. small mushrooms
  •  1/4 c. chopped pimiento
  •  3 Tb. flour
  •  1 c. thin CREAM

Clean, dress, and cut up the CHICKEN. Place the pieces into a Saucepan, and cover with boiling water. Add the salt and the pepper, and allow to come to the boiling point. Remove the scum and simmer the CHICKEN slowly until it is tender. Remove the CHICKEN from the liquid, take the meat from the bones, and cut it into small pieces. Add to these the mushrooms and chopped pimiento. Reduce the stock to 1 cupful and thicken it with the flour added to the thin CREAM. Cook until the Sauce is thickened. Then add to it the chopped CHICKEN with the other ingredients. Heat all thoroughly and serve on toast points or in timbale cases, the making of which is explained in Meat, Part 2.

Recipe: Jellied Chicken

The housewife who desires to serve an unusual CHICKEN dish will find that there is much in favor of jellied CHICKEN. Aside from its food value, jellied CHICKEN has merit in that it appeals to the eye, especially if the mold used in its preparation has a pleasing shape.


  •  1 3 or 4 lb. CHICKEN
  •  2 tsp. salt
  •  Several slices of onion
  •  1 hard-cooked egg
  •  1 pimiento
  •  Several sprigs of parsley

Clean, dress, and cut up the CHICKEN. Put it into a Saucepan and cover with boiling water. Season with the salt and add the slices of onion. Cook slowly until the meat will fall from the bones. Remove the CHICKEN from the Saucepan, take the meat from the bones, and chop it into small pieces. Reduce the stock to about 1 1/2 cupfuls, strain it, and skim off the fat. With this done, place slices of the hard-cooked egg in the bottom of a wet mold. Chop the pimiento and sprigs of parsley and mix them with the chopped meat. Put the mixture on top of the sliced egg, and pour the stock over the whole. Keep in a cool place until it is set. If the stock is not reduced and more jelly is desired, unflavored gelatine may be dissolved and added to coagulate the liquid. To serve jellied CHICKEN, remove from the mold, turn upside down, so that the eggs are on top and act as a garnish, and then cut in thin slices.
