Food52 cofounders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs write the foreword for this collection by chef Kord (co-owner of No. 7 Restaurant; A Super Upsetting Cookbook About Sandwiches). Based on the popular, award-winning site, this cookbook takes 60 chicken recipes and organizes them in chapters by level of meal difficulty and type of audience, from daily dinners and meals for picky eaters to more irreverent fare, such as what to eat when you are sad. Highlights include mix-and-match chicken sandwich, along with weeknight meals. More interesting recipes include spicy Parmesan chicken potpie, chicken cooked in chocolate milk, Parmesan sake-grilled chicken, and chicken kimchi perogies. Step-by-step recipes are precise and easy to follow, with beginner cooks in mind, and most are accompanied with vivid photographs.
VERDICT For anyone tired of the same old chicken recipes, home cooks interested in a new take on an old favorite, or those looking to get started on an easily accessible ingredient.
