If you've grown up in the Central New York region, you may assume salt potatoes would be Syracuse's most popular food. However, that isn't the case. The New York Times has named Cornell Chicken as the main dish of Syracuse. For those that don't know, Cornell Chicken is actually a pretty common dish and recipe here in Upstate New York.

Most of the fire departments and churches in Upstate New York use some variation of this recipe for Cornell Chicken we are about to share with you. First though, a little history lesson.

Bob Baker was a professor of food science at Cornell University.  Baker traveled the world innovating how people eat and view chicken. He helped invent chicken nuggets, turkey ham, and poultry hot dogs. However, his simple recipe for Cornell Chicken is his local claim to fame. You can read more on that online here.
