    HELLO!! The concept of this is much worse than the taste itself, but that being said, would you ever try this savory ~chicken jello~? 😛I stand by my choice to grab the second slice but I’m not sure we're ever gonna spend the whole day to make it again...

      I would except i would season the broth a bit differently to make the flavor more full and i would use * bone in * chicken because that's where the flavor is along with the skin probably thighs and i would use carrots that had been roasted in herbs and butter. It's all about seasoning and layering the flavors. Imagine you are making a soup out of this and each component needs to be flavorful so the soup itself will taste good. there is no difference only that you add gelatin and the foods are suspended in the cold broth/aspic. If you were to add hot broth to the aspic it should melt into a tasty hot dish, that is one way to serve an aspic if you aren't serving it cold.

      i never like it, coz i find it gross, but it's normal food in Poland. You can buy one in store, just like some yoghurt (in little plastic container). In my region we call it GALART and it's with peas and carrot and you pour a vinegar on it before eat.
      Mostly it was on special ocasions like birthdays (or namedays) or christmas, but since you can buy it in store, it's more "eat whenever you want". but it's surely not something that ppl would eat more than once for 2 weeks or month i guess

      The 50's were an after war economic boom.
      People who when they were children went true the great depression of the 30's were now able to afford it all. The gelatin dish ISN'T about tasting good, It's about being able to afford expensive products or at least stuff that was expensive before.

      @Lizzie Cottrell maybe I’m weird, or maybe it’s because I’m French and therefore super sophisticated 💀 but jelly and savoury doesn’t sound scary at all (here, we’d call it ‘in aspic’ and it’s pretty common). My grandma used to have hard boiled eggs in aspic for Easter, and frankly that’s delicious so I think if it’s done well, it’s nice… same with pate in a pastry crust… a bit of jelly makes it less dry and adds a little ‘je n’en sais quoi’ and as we know, that’s usually the secret. 😅

It looked odd,.,.. & it smelled right. But my son that loves eggs. He was 25 or so looked at me and said "mom, that is just wrong in every way." The dogs wouldn't eat it!!!!

    We have something similar in Poland. It's called galareta, galareta drobiowa (when made with poultry), galert (that's regional name) or zimne nóżki (translates as cold feets, because it's made with pork legs). We also cook the meat but with vegetables (carrot, leek, celery root, parsley root), so the broth is more rich in flavour. We make it in normal serving bowls and it usually contains parsley, hard boiled eggs, carrots (from the broth), peas, corn and meat. When ready, we serve it with a few drops of vinegar and bread. Some people love it, some people hate it. I think it's not that disgusting as it sounds 😅

      We made this too, but with just chicken broth and vegetables, no meat in it, and in individual bowls so it would gel faster (and if it didn’t gel very well, you could just eat it out of the little glass bowls). My grandfather immigrated from Poland to Canada 🇨🇦. My grandparents would serve it with Turkish bread called Simiti because my grandmother was from Turkey. As a child I wasn’t crazy about the zimni, but I would eat all the simiti I was given! 😊 My husband’s family has English roots, and his grandmother would apparently make aspic dishes for Christmas dinner. Endless jokes were made about the name - it wasn’t a popular dish.😁 A CBC show called ‘Back In Time For Dinner’ (concept from a BBC series of the same name) said these savoury gelatin recipes were made in the 50s and 60s to show off the fact that you had the $ to afford a refrigerator - an old-fashioned ice box apparently wouldn’t do to set the gelatin. I don’t know what the Victorians did!

    The Victorians were super into savory aspic dishes, they were popular travel and picnic food. Supersizers Go (the show hosted by Sue Perkins of Bakeoff fame and Giles Coren) did an episode where they ate a lot of those dishes. And I'm pretty sure Mrs. Crocombe has made Victorian aspic dishes on The Victorian Way (the ESclips series). I know you guys are more TikTok than Victorian recreation, but given Safiya's love of historical recreation and whatnot, it could be super fun to do an episode on the most ridiculous Victorian or Edwardian aspic recipes you can find, using actual antique recipes. Some of those old recipes are hilarious.
    Oh also, you really needed way more veggies and chicken in your layers for such a deep mold. If you look at drawings and photos of classic aspic dishes, they should be mostly filling with just enough gelatin to hold it together. But for a first time with almost no frame of reference, you did great.

      Jello bright back savory gelatin dishes in the mid century as well, which is where this recipe came from, to try and get American families to stop thinking of jello as a dessert only food so they could raise failing sales. So they threw literally anything they could into a cookbook (not unlike most other cookbooks at the time which were just a cash grab because you didn't have the Internet to tell you how terrible (and often untested) they were
      It didn't really make jello a bit dessert for, but it gave us a really weird era of food

      And if you had a good cold food storage place, the gelatin perserving method would keep the food safe for up to a month.
      Without changing the taste by pickling or fermenting it.

    I think the egg whites make a "raft" to capture anything that would make the broth/jello cloudy making a very clear aspic.

    Okay! So in Ukraine we have a very similar dish to this. The first thing that I would say was not good, to use chicken breast. We are usually using the whole chicken because actual bones giving you a lot of flavor. It takes about 8 hours for gelatin to fully release and then you pulling out the chicken and start getting all those bones and skin out so you are left with clean meat only) if you put that chicken broth in the fridge it’s going to get hard in couple of hours without using anything extra! But definitely you guys did great on your dish and reminded me of my home!

    Similar dish (although the broth base was much better seasoned and we put put it into a cake mould) was the staple Christmas food in my Post-Soviet childhood. It was tasty!

      I often do lots of chicken drumsticks in a large pot with onion, carrots, sweet corn and peas. It becomes very sweet, and if you cook it long enough (since the drumsticks have bones) the collagen seeps out, so once it cools down it becomes actual jelly.
      The difference is that the broth is actually extremely flavorful, and very nice and comforting when it's warm. I have dared not slurp up some of it in jello form. (Also the stock turns somewhat opaque, so you might have to do that french trick where you boil it with beaten eggs to clarify it.)
      There's probably a better way to do this dish but it would not have been published like the one in this video. Because nobody is gonna simmer their chicken for three hours…

    This looks strange. That’s not how we make “chicken jello”. To make real chicken jello aka aspic you need to boil chicken drums for 2 hours so the natural gelatin was transferred into the water. Try it - it’s amazing! When you eat it, it’s like the best chicken soup, but not in a liquid form and more meat per square inch, because the aim it to shred the meat and evenly spread it. If you eat it with horseradish beet relish - it will add sweetness and spiciness. Of course with bread too. So tasty.

    OMG - this brings back memories. I grew up in Austria (living in the UK now) and my grandma used to run a small cornershop and whatever leftovers she wouldn't sell, we would get. They sold this disgusting thing called Gabelbissen ("fork-bites"), which is basically the peasant-version of what you made - pickles, eggs and mayo in aspic and it comes in little cups. It's the most vile thing imaginable. We would get these in bulk. I still get goose-bumps thinking about them. My mum loved them, though.

      The culture that gave birth to this chicken jello tower and numerous other molded aspic recipes did so because it looked funny. Make no mistake, no chef was involved in making this recipe.

    OMG, when I was a little girl in the 60s, ahem, my aunt had a plethora of these new gelatin recipes. Thanksgiving at her house was a source of terror for me. My mom was the type that insisted I eat what was before me. I’m truly an open minded person, but peas and celery do not need to be in lime jello. That said, as I grew up and started cooking, really cookin’, and aspic is really a different deal. Chicken livers in port aspic is lovely. But what came out of kitchens in the fifties and sixties was the stuff of horror.
    I’ve collected these scary recipes from the fifties and sixties. Like some might collect Rob Zombie films. Most of the recipes, like those with sauerkraut or tuna, should serve it with a side of mayonnaise or sour cream. No, I have never, ever, subjected my family to this weird obsession-and I have never made my son eat anything he didn’t want to.

    To keep the pattern, I think my grandmother would do a partial set for a layer, add the stuff for that layer into that tacky partial set gelatin, then add the rest of the liquid for that layer. That said, aspic and jello are not my cuppa, so I'd pass personally, but it does look cool

    Back when this recipe was created, chicken was raised differently, over months, not these modern ones that are ready for market in 6weeks instead of 6 months.
    Chicken raised slowly makes broth with so much more flavor. The chicken itself has so much more flavor.
    The concept of this is still weird and yuck, but modern chicken from the store just cant give the flavor of the original. If you got organic slow raised chicken, it will taste much better.

    I rember aspic being really popular in the 90s. It wasn't with chicken but eggs and shrimp, and vegetables. When we made it we used a smaller mold (about the size of the bottom half) and stuffed it full, then added the gelatin. That way everything stayed where it was supposed to be.

  • Felis Lupus

    Aspic is very much still alive in Norway, although it's more like they yeet in basically a whole salad in there (eggs, shrimp, bell peppers, peas etc). It's pretty tasty, if I'm honest, as long as you make sure the ratio aspic/gelatin to food is wayyyyy skewed towards the foodstuffs; only the thinnest layer of aspic to keep everything shaped together.

  • alex

    i remember learning about why people were so obsessed with gelatin and it's because it was relatively recent at the time that you COULD buy gelatin, and it was seen as some sort of futuristic cooking thing, so people were just experimenting with it at the time. like the idea of buying shelf-stable stuff from the store was new, sort of like canned foods and such as well. so it really was like "look at me, i'm learning the new futuristic cooking things aren't i cool"

It’s orange flavored jello with mandarin oranges in it, layered with a cream made by whisking sour cream, heavy whipping cream, sugar and vanilla extract together. Topped with shredded cheddar cheese and marshmallows. It’s an odd recipe for sure but I stand by it as well as my family. 🍊

    Actually when I make chicken soup... if I put it in the fridge, it solidifies into aspic. I scoop some into a bowl and microwave it and it turns back into soup. So even if you don't like aspic (I do), you can treat it as "amusing way to serve soup before you microwave it."

    I'd be so curious to see a second try of this where you shredded the chicken and did even more layers, but thinner, so that you could get more olives and peppers in there and have them stay where you put them. Maybe also throw in some short noodles to complete the chicken soup vibe!

    Random fun fact I learned from "How to Cook That" - Gelatin food was actually a way to preserve the food inside. The chicken gelatin likely was meant to be made the way gelatin was made in the past - but not necessarily to be eaten. As gelatin was basically the plastic wrap of the past in a way. You'd cook your food and seal it in gelatin to keep everything preserved til the party. I imagine the rest like the absurd presentations came out of this tradition because it would help make the spread of food look better, but no one was probably going to eat the actual gelatin, just the contents.

    I'm old enough to remember going to luncheons with my mother where housewives would proudly serve these gelatin dishes. They were also often served at family gatherings. My mother had a green Tupperware mold with a bottom lid/cover that you could change with different designs for various holidays and seasons.
    Back in the day some of the recipes had ingredients like tomato soup and lemons, meat pate layers were not great but presented less issues when serving than sliced meats. I remember sliced boiled eggs being included in bottom layers. I was not a fan of most of the savory gelatin dishes but I remember that a lot of the fruity dessert dishes that had layers with cream cheese were actually quite good. I think my favorite one ever was a side dish at a Christmas meal it had cranberries, cream cheese, shredded carrots, tangerine sections and walnuts. It was lovely in both appearance and taste really great.
