A Bird in the Oven and Then Some

20 Ways to Roast the Perfect Chicken Plus 80 Delectable Recipes


From the publisher

Among the simplest of dishes, few satisfy in both the making and the eating like a perfectly roasted chicken. The rewards for a nominal effort are many: a home filled with the mingled scents of whatever flavorings have been massaged into the skin and flesh of the bird; the tender pull-apart meat and crisp, golden, salty-sweet skin of the finished dish.

Affordable and easy for beginner cooks, this classic dish is just as fresh and satisfying as it’s always been. In A Bird in the Oven and Then Some, Mindy Fox provides classic and modern takes on roasting a chicken, plus inspirational side dishes and healthy yet delicious recipes for leftovers.

Whether you’re looking for pastas, salads, sandwiches, small plates, brunches, or lunches, it’s all here. You can enjoy a Chicken Noodle Soup with Leeks, Peas, and Dill, pass around Vietnamese Summer Rolls at a dinner party, or indulge in a Baked Macaroni, Chicken, and Cheese.
