This dish was my favorite growing up and remains among my favorites to this day. As such, I have a particular interest in the history of chicks and dumps. But this history seems a bit murky. Wikipedia states that C&D first appeared in the Depression and vaguely places its birth in the American south and midwest. But I see no actual evidence anywhere for this provenance. Nor am I aware of any town that bills itself as the birthplace of C&D.
So, any ideas? Any specifics?
