This chicken cookbook contains twenty-five classic chicken dinners that every good cook should know how to prepare. They create a wonderful foundation of on which you can build as the years to by.
Chicken dinners are the mainstay for many families and for good reasons. The meat has less fat than beef or pork (when the skin is removed) and when prepared well can be incredibly delicious.
The second big advantage of chicken is its versitility. The number of available chicken dinner recipes is endless. However there are some recipes that should definitely be included in your recipe stash. These 25 recipes fit into that category.
The dishes will not only please your family today, but can be passed down through the generations for others to enjoy. I have included a number of well-known traditional chicken recipes that all of the best cooks know how to prepare, plus a few extras for the busy modern day woman or man,who simply loves to cook.Chicken has always been the primary meat served in our home, so I have tried almost every kind of chicken recipe there is. The only non-chicken recipe in the collection is a bonus - my personal Thanksgiving Turkey and Dressing recipe that I couldn't resist sharing. The 25 recipes range from quick and easy pasta dishes to more complicated fare such as Chicken Divan, Chicken Étouffé, and Coq Au Vin.
None of them are particularly difficult, but a few require extra time to prepare well. They are all delicious. Happy Cooking!
About the Author
All things beautiful are my passion. I enjoy anything that a masterful hand creates. Writing is one of those and cooking is another. They both captured my interest and imagination at a very young age. The “Mama's Legacy Series” was a pleasure to create because it allowed me to tap into my interests and to publish cookbooks that my audience can use and enjoy time and time again. I began my love affair with cooking when I was very young. As soon as I could reach the counter top my mother gave me free reign in the kitchen. I was allowed to mix and mix and mix, building my masterpieces. They were nothing more that wild combinations of flour, sugar, spices and water; but, to me it was creating at its best. When I finished with each endeavor, I tossed it all and happily cleaned up the kitchen, looking forward to the next time. My creative spirit in the kitchen had taken root. My first adventure in writing came my senior year in high school when I decided to take a writing correspondence course, which was very forward looking for the time. I experienced the first thrill of putting pen to paper, and all these years later it is still one of the most pleasurable activities in my life. If I had my druthers, I would write all the time. In fact, that is pretty much what I do because I have reached a point in my life where it is now possible. In addition to the “Mama Legacy Cookbook Series” I have two other cookbooks, “Cake Making Made Easy” and “Candy Making Made Easy.” They are not only cookbooks; they provide detailed instructions on how to make cakes and candy. The cake book includes 60 delicious cake recipes and the candy book includes 17 starter recipes so the instructions can be applied immediately. I loved writing both instruction books, especially the candy book, because it brought back so many wonderful memories of candy-making with my family on those long summer nights when I was a young girl. All my work is non-fiction. Even though I love fiction and read it voraciously, it has never been my focus and there are others who do it so much better than I. My choice has always been and will continue to be to write about topics that interest and intrigue me and to share what I discover with my readers.
