Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We cook chicken more than any other meat, two or three times a week, and I always have leftover grilled or roasted chicken in the refrigerator for lunchtime salads and sandwiches. I bought this book as a source of fresh ideas for making chicken different and exciting, since we eat it so much. In that regard, it has been a success. The recipes are pretty simple, and there is some repetition, but mostly they are reliable, easy and good. Which makes this a great cookbook for weeknight cooking.
