Praise for The Best Chicken Recipe:
"Genius in the kitchen arises from competence. In the matter of chickens, this book will provide it."
-The New York Times
"Can be regarded as one of the definitive volumes on cooking chicken."
-Richmond Times Dispatch
"From most publishers, this title would be mostly meaningless...but the folks at Cook's painstakingly test each recipe dozens of times."
Tired of hearing "We're having chicken... again?" No more!
Bored with making the same few chicken recipes over and over? So were we. The Best Chicken Recipes offers over 300 recipes (including over 100 ALL NEW!) for making dinner interesting again. We approach chicken with a fresh eye, offering classics with a modern twist (such as Chicken Salad with Fennel, Lemon, and Parmesan or Braised Chicken with Leeks and Saffron) as well as dishes that may be entirely new, like Chicken Biryani, Warm Roast Chicken with Bread Salad and Arugula, and Korean Fried Chicken.
With our information-packed primer, we show you how to take the guesswork out of knowing when chicken is done and provide tips for boosting flavor, as well as detailed illustrations for basic butchering and carving techniques. Illustrated two-page spreads cover the basics for a variety of topics such as making quicker and better homemade chicken stock, easy pan sauces for boosting flavor, outdoor cooking essentials, and stir-frying do's and don'ts.
Whether you want a foolproof recipe for Simple Roast Chicken, or are looking for something new to add your repertoire (Firecracker Chicken, anyone?), you'll find it all here. In addition, we offer recipes to fit just about any lifestyleâ€”from health conscious to time-crunched -- divided into easy-to-navigate chapters so you can find exactly what you need.
