The seven chapters of Best Chicken Cookbook are "Super Express ... Thirty Minutes or Less"; "Stir-Fries and Skillet Meals"; "Baked and Roasted Chicken"; "Great Chicken Classics"; "Fire Up the Grill"; "Salads, Sandwiches, and Pizza"; and "Soups, Chilies, and Chowders." The "All About Chicken" section that introduces the book is just that: everything. Learn safe handling, boning, cutting up, flattening, the different types of chicken, stuffing, thermometers, etc. There are roasting timetables and microwave tables and tips on carving.
Every recipe is a textbook example of brevity. Betty Crocker believes in the sanctity of the 3 x 5 recipe card. Both prep and cooking times are listed, as well as the number of servings you can expect. The nutrition breakdown for a single serving completes each recipe so you know exactly what the calories and the fat numbers are like. And every recipe is faced by a full-page color photo of what the finished dish looks like.
Anyone--good cook and new cook alike--can pick up a copy of Betty Crocker's Best Chicken Cookbook and, with the right ingredients on hand, put a flavorful, nutritious meal on the table in a half-hour in most cases. This book will be a place to start for some cooks. More experienced cooks will find ways to trim time from their cooking chores. --Schuyler Ingle

Using reading made sauces is not cooking. So when a book relies on this in most of its recipes, I don't see how it can be called a cookbook. Read morePublished on April 2, 2010 by Haytham Ragab
