Good Read and a Recipe

By Donald R. "Doc" McWilliams

Young Jonathan Sullivane (the fictional son of the patriot James Sullivane) and Billy “Cacao” Logan are sent with urgency on a seemingly short trip. But the two friends soon find themselves enlisting as “Secret Agents” for General George Washingon. As the Revolutionary War progresses, they mature into dedicated young men, who find danger, horror, laughter and love.

Maryland Friend Chicken*

  • 1 chicken, 3 pounds
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup minced salt pork
  • salt and pepper
Cut chicken in pieces. In a wide, shallow bowl, combine beaten eggs, salt and pepper and 2 tablespoons water. Place the bread crumbs in another bowl or plastic bag. Dip chicken pieces in the egg mixture then roll in bread crumbs.

Fry salt pork in a heavy skillet until crisp and browned. Add chicken to the skillet; cook slowly until browned. Season with salt and pepper. Dot with butter; cover and transfer to a preheated 325° oven.

 * For Eastern Shore Maryland Fried Chicken, substitute a mixture of Flour and Corn Meal mixed 50/50 for bread crumbs. Sprinkle the egg mixture very lightly with curry powder, along with lots of Salt and Pepper and fry in LARD instead of drippings from Salt Pork.
