The modern chicken is a descendant of Red Junglefowl hybrids along with the Grey Junglefowl first raised thousands of years ago in the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent.

Chicken as a meat has been depicted in Babylonian carvings from around 600 BC. Chicken was one of the most common meats available in the Middle Ages. It was widely believed to be easily digested and considered to be one of the most neutral foodstuff. It was eaten over most of the Eastern hemisphere and a hunter of different kinds of chicken such as capons, pullets and hens wre eaten. It was one of the basic ingredients in the white dish, a stew usuall consisting of chicken and fried onions cooked in milk and seasoned with spices and sugar.

Chicken consumption in the USA increased during World War II due to a shortage of beef and pork. In Europe, consumption of chicken overtook that of beef and veal in 1996, linked to consumer awareness of Bovine spongiform encephalopathy or B.S.E.

  22. That's exactly what I use, but I prefer bone in chicken when baking, so I can have the nice crispy and rosy skin...that way it requires and additional 20 minutes longer. "Great minds think alike":DDD
