Not sure what to make for supper? Try this recipe from Cary Grant and then pair it with one of his movies, the 1946 Alfred Hitchcock film, "Notorious."

The Recipe:

The recipe is called, Cary Grant's Oven-Barbecued Chicken and the recipe is from PBS Food/The History Kitchen. According to the site, this recipe came from the 1939 book, "What Actors Eat When They Eat!" The book was complied and edited by two silent stars actually, Rex Lease and Kenneth Harlan.

According to this book, Grant got the recipe because it was a national prize winner of the year and he just so happened to like it.

So check out the recipe and test it out tonight for supper!

The Movie:

Now you need something to pair this meal with, so I picked Grant's 1946 movie, "Notorious."

"Notorious," was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and Ingrid Bergman also starred in the movie. The film is about a woman, who is given the task by a government agent (Grant), to spy on her father's friends.

So rent the movie tonight and watch it while testing out a recipe from one of it's own actors, Cary Grant.
