Chicken Recipe from 1959

So the other day, we were looking for a new way to cook some chicken thighs. So Paula was browsing through various cookbooks and we found a newspaper clipping tucked inside one of Mary’s cookbooks. The recipe was one where you dip the chicken pieces in evaporated milk and coat with crushed corn flakes. Okay, we haven’t done that in a long time. Let’s try it.

But that’s not much of a story. What is more interesting is the ad on the back side of the recipe. It’s an ad for diet pills. It doesn’t say it but my guess is that it’s some sort of speed/dexedrine. So, I scanned and included here.



Oh by the way, here’s the recipe. Tasted pretty good.
