Some of my best-loved and most-used cookbooks come from the folks at America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Illustrated. Just last weekend I made Beef Pot Pie using recipes from THE AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN FAMILY COOKBOOK; next week I'll be making Braised Beef Short Ribs, which we've already enjoyed many times, from the same cookbook.
Cook's Illustrated's THE COMPLETE BOOK OF CHICKEN is another much-used favorite. I thought maybe I wouldn't need this new book, as I already have a number of good chicken recipes, but over 100 of the recipes are all new...hmmmm.
Other favorite chicken cookbooks include THE NEW YORK TIMES CHICKEN COOKBOOK and 150 THINGS TO MAKE WITH ROAST CHICKEN.
Chicken is healthy and economical, so new ideas for preparing it are always a Good Thing.
