Creamy Dill Chicken And Noodles

British merchant Peter Durand made an impact on food preservation with his 1810 patenting of the tin can. In 1813, John Hall and Bryan Dorkin opened the first commercial canning factory in England. In 1846, Henry Evans invents a machine that can manufacture tin cans at a rate of sixty per hour. An significant increase over the previous rate of only six per hour. 

The first tin cans were so thick they had to be hammered open. As cans became thinner, it became possible to invent dedicated can openers. In 1858, Ezra Warner of Waterbury, Connecticut patented the first can opener. The U.S. military used it during the Civil War. In 1866, J. Osterhoudt patented the tin can with a key opener that you can find on sardine cans.

The inventor of the familiar household can opener was William Lyman. William Lyman patented a very easy to use can opener in 1870. The kind with the wheel that rolls and cuts around the rim of a can. The Star Can Company of San Francisco improved William Lyman's can opener in 1925 by adding a serrated edge to the wheel. An electric version of the same type of can opener was first sold in December of 1931.

  11. I do my chicken in a similar way although I just serve it just with penne pasta and way more dill. I use to go mad about chicken and pasta for lunches at work since it was an easy and quick snack that tasted great even without heating it up. Have to say your chicken looks perfect. Enjoyed the read, wishing you all the best!

  12. This looks like a perfect "comfort food" dinner.

  13. I bet this would work with salmon and shrimp as well. Summer and fresh dill would make it all work together outdoors too.

    Lovely recipe!
