Summary
"How did chicken achieve the culinary ubiquity it enjoys today? It's hard to imagine, but there was once a point in history, not terribly long ago, that individual people each consumed less than ten pounds of chicken per year. Today, those numbers are strikingly different: Americans consume nearly ten times as much chicken as our great-grandparents did. Modern Americans devour 73.1 million pounds of chicken every day. How did chicken rise from near-invisibility to being in seemingly 'every pot, ' as per Herbert Hoover's famous promise?"--
