  • Summary

    Lindy Boggs, who represented New Orleans in Congress for 18 years, was as astute in the kitchen as she was in politics, and deployed the knowledge that she had gained growing up on a Louisiana plantation in both. Mrs. Boggs, a Democrat who championed women’s economic concerns, did all the cooking for her yearly garden soirees, which were attended by more than 1,000 guests. Here is her easy recipe for oven-fried chicken, which should be for anyone afraid of stovetop frying. It is a weeknight recipe from a busy woman who cooked, and governed, with confidence and grace.
