Item description for The Best Chicken Recipes by Cook's Illustrated Magazine ...
Chicken is the go-to main course for most Americans, but the same old recipes featuring bland, dry chicken are all too often the norm - resulting in a collective sigh around the dinner table. The Best Chicken Recipes offers more than 300 foolproof ideas for cooking chicken right - and making dinner interesting again. Whether you're looking for a never-fail recipe for Simple Roast Chicken, classics with a modern twist (Chicken Salad with Fennel, Lemon, and Parmesan or Braised Chicken with Leeks and Saffron), or something entirely new to incorporate into your repertoire (Chicken Tagine or Firecracker Chicken, anyone?), you'll find it all here. In addition, we offer recipes to fit just about any season, occasion, and lifestyle, all divided into easy-to-navigate chapters for quick reference. Our information-packed primer shows you how to take the guesswork out of knowing when chicken is done and provides tips for boosting flavor, as well as detailed illustrations for basic basic butchering and carving techniques. Whether you're entertaining a group or cooking for two, are health conscious or time-crunched - we're got you covered. With this book in your kitchen, no one will ever be late to dinner again.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Best Chicken Recipes?
Lives Up To The Cook's Illustrated Standard Sep 7, 2008
If I didn't own so many Cook's Illustrated books, this book would be five stars. Because I own the other books, I've seen many of the recipes before. Repeats aside, this is still a wonderful book to own. There are a range of recipes from beginner to more advanced, all presented in an easy to understand format.
The Chicken 101 section is extremely helpful. It has step-by-steps for butchering, brining, etc. I wish they would've included instructions for trussing.
There are some hidden gems in the book like a primer on gas griling. As with all CI books, there are some best equipment and ingredient recommendations sprinkled throughout. The recipes are solid and almost fail-proof. I love the CI method: provide all the background info on the recipe and then a straight-forward recipe.
The book covers everything from chicken as appetizers to leftover chicken recipes. Cool chapters are Express Lane Chicken and Chicken Dinners for Two.
Well-researched, perfect for your table chicken recipies Jun 24, 2008
You'll never think of chicken as bland or boring again! Each of these recipies is carefully tested and bound to make you enthusiastic again about this often-overlooked main dinner course. From soups to slow cooker recipies, this oversize book has everything. I like the informative "Chicken 101" section nearly as well as the wonderful recipies. There are drawings that illustrate some of the preparation steps, and a few color photos as well. There are even cooking tips for other foods, like the one that cleverly tells how to peel boiled eggs quickly. Includes index and conversion chart.
Clear step-by-step 'how to' explanations make for an exceptionally easy presentation. Jun 20, 2008
America's Test Kitchen roasted some 40 chickens to find a foolproof recipe for roast chicken - and this is an example of just one of the exhaustive testing methods conducted on each and every recipe featured in BEST CHICKEN RECIPES - making it the best. Chapters divided by type of chicken - roasted and baked, fried, or stir-fried for example - make it easy to locate dishes by method, while a peppering of color photos and clear step-by-step 'how to' explanations make for an exceptionally easy presentation. Highly recommended: any general-interest library catering to any level of home cook needs this.

Successful chicken recipes Jun 9, 2008
I bought this cookbook as a gift for my niece as she was running out of ideas for chicken recipes. She loved receiving it and immediately tried a few of the dishes with great success. Cook's Illustrated and their TV program, America's Test Kitchen, always have great recipes so buying this book was a no brainer!
For someone who loves to spend time in the kitchen May 9, 2008
I saw this book mentioned in our local paper and without reviewing it at a local bookstore or the library, I bought it. I knew better. This book has some nice information in it for true cooks. I'm not one. I actually like those recipes that call for a can of soup as a sauce. If you love to spend time in the kitchen making wonderful food you might enjoy this book. If you want to make enough food to satisfy a significant other and then get back to more interesting things, you probably won't want this book.
