Chicken doesn’t have to be boring, especially when you have this essential collection at hand. It contains recipes with not only common preparations like roasting, grilling, and frying, but also recipes featuring popular kitchen appliances such as slow cookers, pressure cookers, and air fryers. The introduction helpfully offers information about all parts of a chicken, along with common equipment necessary for cooking it, as well as the best ways to prepare different parts for various meals. This will come in handy when preparing standouts such as honey mustard-glazed chicken with roasted sweet potato salad; spicy chicken flautas; two honey roast chickens; and chicken, spinach, and artichoke pot pie. Similar to other America’s Test Kitchen books, each recipe is well written and features tips on how to effectively make each dish. The book concludes with a handy chapter on cooking for two, with several options and variations.
VERDICT A beautifully photographed addition to the family of America’s Test Kitchen books that will draw in cooks of all levels.
