She opens the book with a couple of dozen nice color photographs of just a few of the meals described in this book. You get the idea that the author is really into being creative and treating these meals as a dining experience rather than a compromised meal you just toss off and wolf down. She divides the recipes into the part of the meal they are for: appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches & wraps, entrees, casseroles, and breakfasts & brunches. Almost all these recipes use the chicken meat off the bone. That is, you use it diced, shredded, and sliced more often than as in the normal cuts of chicken such as breast, thigh, wing, and leg.
The recipes are clearly written and all follow the same helpful format. You get a list of ingredients (some use quite a few!) and then the exact set of three to six steps you need to take to pull off the dish. The recipe also tells you how many servings the recipe will provide. Again, these recipes are clear and easy to use. The ingredients use a variety of fresh and prepared ingredients to keep things both tasty and easy to prepare.
Anderson provides a page and a half of introduction that helps you get on the same page with her recipes and the book has a very helpful index at the back.
This is a great book for those of us who want to eat real food, but who also have busy lives that require us to take advantage of conveniences such as rotisserie chickens.
Reviewed by Craig Matteson, Ann Arbor, MI
Having solved the most critical part of the decision- the main ingredient- I'm almost home- almost, not quite. Stopping by the introduction, I am informed that I must adapt my rotisserie chicken to the recipe (separating meat from bones, when to use a boning knife, preparing my own chicken stock, etc.). Too many trips to Trader Joe's have made me lazy. But there are examples of the recipes inside in the front of the book, full color pictures of a variety of the offerings in the various sections and a table of contents that includes the vital chapters for a helpful cookbook, from appetizers to soups to casseroles and entrees, my only challenge to pick one and proceed beyond a grocery list of necessary ingredients.
Among the many choices: Sweet Pepper Relleno Poppers, Monte Cristo Minis, Chicken Tostada Compuesta, Grapefruit Chicken Salad, Chicken and Escarole Soup, Moroccan Chicken, Parmesan Chicken and Eggplant Bake, Chicken and Fig Casserole, Chicken and Asparagus Crepes, Chicken Artichoke Frittata. Low fat, high protein chicken is the foundation of these recipes, the combinations creative and appetizing, directions broken into easy-to-follow steps. Given the variety of combinations, including a great selection of vegetable and chicken meals, there are unusual choices to satisfy the needs of even the pickiest family. There is, however an absence of calorie content with each dish- after the creams and sauces in these recipes, I may be forced to purchase the most current successful diet book. Luan Gaines/ 2008..
