Chicken a la Maryland is none other than famous fried chicken. This Maryland chicken recipe is a loosely adapted take on Escoffier's version in Ma Cuisine
, in which he dredges the chicken in flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs, and then fries it in butter.Trivia:
Chicken a la Maryland, presumably prepared with a decidedly French twist, was offered on the very last menu of the doomed Titanic voyage in 1912. The dish was served in first class and possibly second class (third class had much less fancy foods and would be unlikely to have had this dish).
