Nice looking book with large colorful photos of every recipe. The only problem is the photos don't look anything like the finished recipe. For instance, I could tell by looking at the photo of one recipe that the skin had been left on whole chicken pieces but the recipe said to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I went ahead and followed the recipe exactly and instead of having something that looked like over roasted chicken, I ended up with bland poached chicken because the sauce was too much liquid and the chicken ended up just poaching in it. In other recipes, the chicken ends up tough and bland and the sauces and glazes never look like they do in the photos.

We tried about half a dozen recipes and were not impressed with any of them. In fact, my husband asked for me NOT to prepare those recipes again. It takes a lot to get a thumbs down from my husband because he generally eats anything! I wouldn't buy this book again nor would I recommend it to a friend. In fact, my copy is headed to the Goodwill.

Very disappointing book. So many recipes call for processed dressings, sauces etc. The Readers Digest Great Chicken Cookbook is far more helpful with good truly homemade recipes.

As a wife and mother of three small children, I can't spend a lot of time in the kitchen; just too much else to do, so I appreciate these recipes: varied, simple, and TIME-SAVING! I also like that there are pics for each recipe so you can have an idea as to what the finished product should look like. (wink) So far everyone's favorite has been Chicken with Garlic Bread Crumbs (pgs 78 and 79), but I'm still having so much fun trying out the recipes! This cookbook is definitely worth every cent spent!

You can't go wrong with anything Betty Crocker, when it comes to cook books. A lot of easy to make and very enjoyable choices for chicken. Nothing fancy, just good down home cooking.

This cookbook is exceptional in terms of variety in recipes and full-page photos. I always prefer illustrated cookbooks...as it helps inspire me for meal planning. The format and layout are very clean and easy to read/understand. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a chicken-specific cookbook.
