Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Williams-Sonoma, purveyor of choice gourmet products and kitchenware, has also created a collection of succinct yet comprehensive cookbooks. Part of the series, Chicken offers 40 recipes that reflect the company's signature good taste. The book presents a wide range of delicious chicken dishes, from classics like Fried Chicken with Herbed Buttermilk Crust and Chicken Cacciatore, to quick supper delights including Spicy Chicken and Basil Stir-Fry, to company dishes such as Chicken with Shrimp Paella and grilled specialties like Thai Chicken with Lemongrass, Garlic and Chiles. Also included are one-pot specialties such as Chicken with Andouille Gumbo and a chapter that puts basic roasted chicken to great second-day use in dishes like Warm Chicken and Couscous Salad. Readers will also find a "beyond chicken" chapter that offers treats like Turkey Meatloaf with Sage Gravy and Coriander-Rubbed Duck Breasts with Grilled Oranges.

Accompanied by color photos that show the dishes in all their glory, the recipes are completely doable, and should appeal to a wide range of cooks. Throughout, sidebars (like "How to Flambé") offer useful information on techniques and ingredients; a glossary and basics section are also helpful. Though small in size, the book provides an inclusive store of superior recipes and instruction. --Arthur Boehm

Well-written, great recipes and beautiful photography.
NuJoi
Some of these recipes are also easy and quick enough for weeknight meals, and make tasty left-overs.

I spent a good hour dreaming over the contents of this book after I first got it.

WS's Chicken cookbook is a fantastic collection of easy and creative recipes for chicken. I have already tried the vast majority of recipes and have yet to find one that my husband or myself did not enjoy. The ingredients are creative, the tastes unique, and the presentation easy. It will make the way you cook chicken seem much more entertaining.

This book is right on par with the other titles in the series. Well-written, great recipes and beautiful photography. The perfect roast chicken and farmhouse chicken noodle soup are delicious. My only disappointment is the chicken basics section. I would've like more photos with the techniques, but that seems to be the style of this series.

CHICKEN IS THE MOST UNIVERSAL OF ALL MEATS,
well, this book, really lends itself to elevating the run in the mill, bird affair. A few time consuming techniques, but it's for special occasions. If you are looking for twists and turns on family favorites, this is a great collection. I suggest owning a convection oven, and high quality stainless cookware, when making most of these dishes.

I own several of the Williams-Sonoma cookbooks and all are of the highest quality. Each recipe is displayed on a 2-page spread with a clear list of ingredients and instructions and a full color photograph on the adjacent page. Each recipe also includes a photograph sidebar that provides cooking tips germane to the recipe. The recipes are always well tested and you will achieve consistent results, probably even as appealing as the professionally styled photographs !

This Chicken cookbook includes more than 40 recipes, as well as a glossary and index. I appreciate the generous use of white space on the recipe pages so that I can make my own notes regarding techniques or adjustments or just to indicate whether the recipe was a hit with the family.

The first chapter includes the classics - perfect roasted chicken, chicken cacciatore, fried chicken, coq au vin, chicken pot pie and noodle soup. The second chapter is labeled "Quick Suppers" and includes Spicy Chicken and Basil Stir-fry, Chicken Breasts with Wild Mushrooms and Marsala, and Chicken Breasts with Cherry Tomatoes, Zucchini and Olives, among others. I made the latter tonite and total prep/cooking time was probably less than 30 minutes. We will have left-overs tomorrow night. The recipes in this chapter should be in regular rotation for your weeknight meals!

The next chapter, Dinner With Friends, includes recipes that are more special and interesting such as Spinach and Chicken Spanakopita, Chicken and Shrimp Paella, Brined Roast Chicken with Wine Jus and others. They take a little longer to prepare, but are all feasible even for a cook of moderate experience in the kitchen.

First, thank you to the seller who took extra effort to make the book arrive safely. Perfect condition. As for contents of the chicken book, Williams-Sonoma lives up to it's reputation of photographic wonder. Each recipe is illustrated by a full page look at what you should expect. And the recipes are inspiring. Some may be basic, but many give new twists on the old preparations. I spent a good hour dreaming over the contents of this book after I first got it. Coq au Vin was especially delicious!

Bought this and the rest of the collection as a added touch for new cooks to review, enjoy, and learn new ways to make chicken---in their Cuisinart products that were also purchased as part of the surprise! Like that they are hardcover--beautiful photos and good quality paper. Nicely done!
