Personal Notes:
Quite a few years ago when Ryan was much younger, he asked me to make Pennsylvania Chicken. Since I didn’t make a dish called Pennsylvania Chicken, I tried to figure out what he was referring to. The more questions I asked, the more frustrated he became….our conversation was quickly going downhill. As he was attempting to describe it, the light finally went off for me and I asked if he was talking about Crescent Chicken. Yes! He said. You know, that town you lived in when you were little….Cresson, Pennsylvania….Pennsylvania Chicken! So, from then on, it has been known as Pennsylvania Chicken in our home. It’s one of our favorites and every time I make it, I chuckle a little as I remember that very special conversation with Ryan.
