You might think that fried chicken is a newer, maybe even southern thing. Turns out there's an old English recipe that you can make from 1736.

This particular recipe comes from Nathan Bailey's 1736 cookbook, "Dictionarium Domesticum."

The book is filed like a dictionary in that everything is in alphabetical order. It gives you the recipe for the marinade, as well as the batter.

The only terrifying part about this is frying it over an open flame! Even the guy in the video kind of warns how dangerous that is.

But on that note, I can't wait to try this!
