Chinese cooking continues to appeal to health-conscious Americans for its freshness and variety. Eileen Yin-Fei Lo's The Chinese Chicken Cookbook
shows in 100 recipes how to use chicken as a basis for a variety of tastes and textures. Simple congee of rice and broth produces a Chinese version of comforting chicken soup. Lo's Mu Shu Chicken requires a complex variety of ingredients, such as dried tiger lily stems and cloud ear, to stuff into homemade pancakes. Special chicken-stuffed dumplings need the cook's dexterity to turn out as lovely as they do in restaurants. The book's final recipe, Mah Jongg Chicken, transforms a large roasting chicken into three individual dishes meant to form a single meal: spiced steamed chicken, a soup, and a stir-fry.
