In the original Joy of Cooking, Irma Rombauer wrote, "The chicken is a world citizen." Those words of wisdom have certainly withstood the test of time. They may even be truer today than they were in 1931. The draw of chicken is obvious: it's
low fat, inexpensive, and easy to prepare--yet it can also be so... dull. As the star of its own volume in Joy's All About series, it truly shines.
Adapted from The Joy of Cooking and coauthored by Rombauer, her daughter Marion Rombauer Becker,
and her grandson Ethan Becker, this volume upholds Joy's long-standing tradition of teaching generations of Americans to cook. In the same conversational yet instructional tone that made the original Joy such a favorite, the authors cover everything a
cook needs to know to become a master of chicken.
Like the other editions of Joy, this one provides plenty of time-tested recipes for classic standbys as well as an inspirational array of recipes for more exotic fare to encourage readers to
experiment and find new favorites. For a casual family supper, you can't go wrong with Baked Chicken with Onions, Garlic, and Rosemary or Chicken and Dumplings. For more elegant occasions, the flavorful Gorgonzola-Stuffed Chicken Breasts or buttery
Chicken Kiev fit the bill. Those who are calorie-conscious will revel in dishes like the succulent Sautéed Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes, Capers, and Basil or the delightfully tangy Sautéed Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast with
Balsamic Citrus Sauce. More adventurous eaters will find satisfaction in dishes like Doro Wat (Ethiopian-style chicken in red pepper sauce), Spicy Chicken Hobo Pack with Lime and Chili Peppers, and Baked Chicken with Chili-Garlic Spice Paste. Full-color
photographs depict finished dishes and offer step-by-step illustrations.
A section on stuffings, a chapter on flavor enhancers--marinades, sauces, and spice rubs--and tips on buying, storing, and freezing chicken make this book is an indispensable
guide for serving chicken for every occasion. --Robin Donovan

Invaluable techniques and tips for buying, storing, preparing, and carving chicken
Sixty years after Irma Rombauer advised new cooks to
"Stand facing the stove," America's love affair with Joy of Cooking continues unabated. And why not? Joy in hand, tens of millions of people -- from novices to professionals -- have learned to do everything from make a meat loaf to clean a squid to frost
a wedding cake. For decades, Joy of Cooking has taught America how to cook, serving as the standard against which all other cookbooks are judged.
All About Chicken upholds that standard. In the conversational and instructional manner of the
flagship book, All About Chicken is organized by technique. Chapters that cover roasting, broiling, baking, sautéing and stir-frying, braising, frying, and grilling chicken incorporate more than 100 of Joy's best-loved recipes -- Casserole Roasted
Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic to Broiled Lemon Garlic Chicken to Chicken Breasts Baked on Mushroom Caps. You'll also find recipes for a dozen or more stuffings, sauces, marinades, and gravies, as well as techniques for carving, preparing, buying,
and storing chicken. Add to that more than 150 original photographs, specially commissioned for this volume, presented in the most easy-to-use design imaginable.

copy (or two) of Joy, or you have never cracked the spine of a cookbook before, Joy of Cooking: All About Chicken is for you. It is a spectacula
