Reviews - What do customers think about Betty Crocker's Best Chicken Cookbook?
What a joke to anyone who cooks Dec 14, 2007
I just received this "cook"book and can't believe it's received 5 stars as a good cookbook. Apparently the people who purchased this cookbook think it's okay to throw in a can, package or any other premade, processed food to a recipe and consider that cooking. I don't. This "cook"book is a complete joke.

This book is fabulous! I love chicken and I want to try so many recipes in this handy little book. I enjoy the fact that the book gives you the total amount of calories in each recipe!! This book is an excellent purchase for anyone who enjoys eating chicken.
Fantastic chicken cookbook Feb 3, 2007
This cookbook is exceptional in terms of variety in recipes and full-page photos. I always prefer illustrated cookbooks...as it helps inspire me for meal planning. The format and layout are very clean and easy to read/understand. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a chicken-specific cookbook.
Worth Every Cent! Mar 17, 2006
As a wife and mother of three small children, I can't spend a lot of time in the kitchen; just too much else to do, so I appreciate these recipes: varied, simple, and TIME-SAVING! I also like that there are pics for each recipe so you can have an idea as to what the finished product should look like. (wink) So far everyone's favorite has been Chicken with Garlic Bread Crumbs (pgs 78 and 79), but I'm still having so much fun trying out the recipes! This cookbook is definitely worth every cent spent!
Pictures of every recipe! Feb 14, 2006
This is a great cookbook for chicken recipes. There is a large variety of recipes, from Asian to Mexican to Italian to Southern as well as sandwiches, soups, and stews. Most of the recipes are simple and many are quick. These are mostly made with ingredients that I buy at the grocery store on a regular basis, without a lot of hard to find or uncommon additions. That's especially nice considering the large variety of tastes and textures included.
Many of the recipes feature suggestions for side dishes as well, which is particularly helpful, and tips to make the cooking go easier and faster. The recipe instructions are rather brief, and for the inexperienced cook, they may find this a slight obstacle, but with the reference guide in the front, it would be impossible to not know what to do. The front of the book has a wonderful guide about storage, safety, and cooking techniques.
The best part about this book is that there is a glossy color picture of every recipe on the main pages (there are a few recipes inside the cover of the book that don't have pictures), which is great when flipping through the book to decide what to have for dinner. It's especially helpful for those that are more visually oriented and for whom it is difficult to get a picture and the taste of the recipe by just reading the words.
