The Dish: Chicken Not So Little.

Sully fell for it. I ain’t never seen a scrawny chicken on any farm, in my whole life - unless they were sick. Were we all picking at bony little two pound birds when I was born? Hell no. Do you realize how little meat is on a two-pound bird? Look at history. Vintage cookbooks from the 19th century spec four pound and larger hens.

This is what I mean about today’s internet. Doesn’t matter who is curating, how popular or clever they are. Accept nothing at face value. That includes MY finds. I do my best ... and in spite of that, I still link some pretty stinkeroo stuff from time to time. One must question the premise, every damn time.

Later: See the comments for clarification.
