Chicken a la Maryland is none other than the famous fried chicken dish offered on the very last first class luncheon menu of the doomed Titanic voyage in 1912. This chicken Maryland recipe is a modern take on Escoffier's version in Ma Cuisine. Ours produces tender, flavorful chicken, with a mildly crunchy, butter-fried coating. Escoffier's version and countless others, including this one, include some form of banana garnish, because bananas were one of Baltimore's prime imports around the time this dish first became popularized. Bon appetit!
