Amazon.com Review

Betty Crocker doesn't believe in waste, and that includes space. Just look inside the front cover of her Best Chicken Cookbook. There you'll find 10 "Fast and Easy" chicken dinner entrées and five "Quick Main Dish Chicken Salads." You start with four boneless, skinless chicken breasts that you then flatten, and 20 minutes later you serve something along the lines of Pesto Chicken, Pecan Maple Chicken, or Fajita Chicken. Or Oriental Chicken Salad. Or Raspberry Chicken Salad. Inside the back cover, you'll find eight Moist Poultry Secrets (wrap tightly during storage; don't undercook chicken--it's tough and rubbery) and a table of nutrition facts.

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

Maybe there are diffrent issues on the market (with the same ISBN Number). I have the First Edition from 1999 but a diffrent cover as your picture are showing and 304 pages.
But I LOVE THE BOOK !!!! The recipes are easy to following, no fancy ingridients and for weeks you can make different dishes.
I also love there are a picture for each recipe (a lot of cookbooks have none or only a few)in MY Cookbook. So you can see how it's looke like.
I can only reccomend this book !!!!!!!

This is a great cookbook for chicken recipes. There is a large variety of recipes, from Asian to Mexican to Italian to Southern as well as sandwiches, soups, and stews. Most of the recipes are simple and many are quick. These are mostly made with ingredients that I buy at the grocery store on a regular basis, without a lot of hard to find or uncommon additions. That's especially nice considering the large variety of tastes and textures included.

Many of the recipes feature suggestions for side dishes as well, which is particularly helpful, and tips to make the cooking go easier and faster. The recipe instructions are rather brief, and for the inexperienced cook, they may find this a slight obstacle, but with the reference guide in the front, it would be impossible to not know what to do. The front of the book has a wonderful guide about storage, safety, and cooking techniques.

The best part about this book is that there is a glossy color picture of every recipe on the main pages (there are a few recipes inside the cover of the book that don't have pictures), which is great when flipping through the book to decide what to have for dinner. It's especially helpful for those that are more visually oriented and for whom it is difficult to get a picture and the taste of the recipe by just reading the words.

A very helpful chicken cooking guide!

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!

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.

This cookbook is great! There are hundreds of simple, yet tasty, chicken recipes. We have tried several and love them all...and they are done in less than 30 minutes with minimal work. We especially love the Mexican Chicken Skillet...it is healthy and quick. We have tried several of the marinades and rubs as well, and no complaints so far! I highly recommend this cookbook if you love chicken, but need a new way to prepare it. Enjoy!

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.
