Review

To the rescue comes Your Chicken Is Cooked ... comes in handy for your chicken leftovers, as well as holiday turkeys..." -- Peggy Trowbridge, Home Cooking Guide, About.com

Your Chicken Is Cooked is an impressive collection of 125… varied and delicious recipes presented with direct and unambiguous instructions. -- Mid-West Book Review, January, 2004

About the Author

Lauren Brimmer spent over 12 years at Fortune 1000 companies including Microsoft, Iomega, and Honeywell. She is also an adjunct professor of Operations Management at California State University.

With an MBA in operations management, Ms. Brimmer is an unlikely candidate to write a traditional cookbook, but the perfect person to write a cookbook that's truly useful for cooks of all skill levels who are tired of cookbooks with recipes that don't work in a real home kitchen.

The book was also written to give people a laugh and teach them a few things not commonly known about selecting, handling and storing food safely.

Your Chicken is Cooked was conceived while Ms Brimmer carried her first child. Working hard to launch a new software product, dinner was often rotisserie chicken and salad or steamed vegetables. Your Chicken is Cooked was literally created from the leftovers.

Quitting her career and with time on her hands, Ms. Brimmer decided to fulfill her dream and write a book. Assembling a team of talented book designers and editors, she put her past project management experience to the test and published it too!

Buy the book at Amazon.com or choose the Marketplace option, and receive an autographed First Edition. Either way, you're bound to enjoy, Your Chicken is Cooked!

By Harold McFarland HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 3, 2004
Format: Paperback
Filling a rather unique niche in the cookbook genre, "Your Chicken is Cooked" is a series of recipes that prove you can make a great meal from leftover chicken. Each of the meals that contain chicken start with already cooked chicken as a primary ingredient. The recipes range from appetizers to soups to main dishes and include several really tasty meals. Among them are excellent recipes for Oriental Chicken Salad, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chicken and Dumplings, Sesame Chicken, Florentine Chicken Casserole, and Broccoli and Roast Garlic Chicken.
Don't be fooled by the title to the book. In addition to all the chicken based recipes the book also includes several dessert recipes that are chicken free. All the recipes are reasonably fast and most take twenty minutes or less to prepare. "Your Chicken is cooked" is highly recommended for busy people or anyone looking for great tasting ways to use leftover chicken.

From the catchy title and amusing quotes to the easy-to-follow recipes, this cookbook has been both highly informative and entertaining. Since I do not look forward to coming up with ideas for dinner, this book has been a real gift to me. It is so easy to pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. But now, rather than serve it with rice and canned green beans, my family is enjoying a variety of great, tasty chicken meals at lunch and dinner. I am grateful for the wonderful ideas contained in this book. My copy is on the kitchen counter at all times. I strongly recommend this book. You will not regret buying it!

I curled up last night with my new book to pick out some recipes, and promptly left for the grocery store. I made the eggplant parmesan and it was a big hit. I really love the way the book is organized. The recipes all sound delicious!!! Lauren, keep up the good work...

I will be telling all my "foodie" friends about this book and will show it off at my next cooking club dinner.

This book answers the question: What can I fix real quick, and still serve a delicious, and healthy dinner? And have a minimal amount of cleanup afterwards?

Lauren Rae Brimmer answers all these questions, 125 times. Just get a rotisserie chicken, and you probably have the other ingredients on hand. Lunches, soups, appetizers, main dishes, and more.

I especially appreciate the detailed information in the back of the book concerning all manner of information that we need to know (such as "how long does it keep?").

My next question: When will Lauren focus her attention on another food basic, and share the results with us?

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. ~J.R.R. Tolkien

Your Chicken is Cooked is a fun cookbook to have around if you enjoy buying Rotisserie Chicken. By buying cooked chicken, you can save hours of time when making dinner or lunch. Each recipe calls for cooked chicken, but you could also just cook your own chicken at home or use leftover chicken from a baked chicken. Either way, you can enjoy recipes for:

Classic Chicken Caesar Salad

Toasted Chicken Sandwiches

Florentine Crepes

Chicken Fried Rice

Chicken and Asparagus Casserole

For dessert:

Grandma's Apple Pie

No-Fat New York Cheesecake

Chocolate Coconut Custard

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Lauren Rae Brimmer also includes a brief history of chicken, includes notes on each recipes and has sprinkled food quotes throughout the recipes. An enjoyable read from cover to cover. Saves time and the recipes have easy-to-follow instructions and variations.
