Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spice-roasted chicken with fennel, coriander, and lemon

    • Aggie92 on February 14, 2022

      Not bad, just not as flavorful as I would have liked. The lemon zest didn't add much and the fennel was a bit overwhelming. The cooking method is solid, my 3.5 pound chicken was done in an hour and had nice crispy skin on the top. The bottom of the bird was not crispy at all even though it was sitting in a hot cast iron pan. But that's okay, I'm not that fanatical about crispy skin on the whole bird.

  • Classic chicken stew with red peppers, white beans, and spinach

    • Aggie92 on September 13, 2023

      Yummy comfort food on a cool rainy evening. Oven is broken so I simmered it on the stovetop for an hour. Needed a little acid to finish, so added a couple of tablespoons of white wine vinegar and an extra 1/4 cup of Pinot Grigio wine. I think this stew would be equally good with rosemary instead of the thyme.

  • Quick Provençal-style chicken stew with mushrooms and olives

    • Aggie92 on October 02, 2023

      Absolutely delicious! We loved this and can't wait to make it again. Made a few small changes by substituting chicken tenders and cremini mushrooms. Also added 1/4 cup of Pinot Grigio along with the stock.

  • Murgh makhani

    • Delys77 on November 25, 2021

      Easy, fairly light, and quite flavouful. Good technique to maintain juicy and soft chicken.

  • Grilled spice-rubbed chicken drumsticks

    • chawkins on June 20, 2023

      I brined mine for an hour and skipped the cayenne in the spice rub. Quite tasty.

  • Chicken piccata

    • julesamomof2 on December 24, 2021

      This was a fairly standard rendition of chicken piccata, which we make alot. But the neat trick I learned was to slice the chicken breasts crosswise and then slice the thicker pieces in half before pounding. This turned out great and I liked the smaller pieces anyway. Will definitely use this method from now on.

  • Greek chicken

    • rstone128 on January 23, 2023

      This comes from a restaurant near our home. Test kitchen nailed it. Highly recommend.

  • Vindaloo-style chicken

    • mpo on January 18, 2022

      This takes some time, I don’t know if your really need an hour to cook skinless chicken thighs however it was good!

  • Nut-crusted chicken breasts with lime and chipotle

    • mpo on July 26, 2023

      I think next time I will go with more the more Asian-influenced spices like ginger and garlic, in the nut panko mixture. I also dusted the chicken with almond flour versus a whole flour dredge which I don’t think is necessary especially since you are oven baking the chicken.

  • Chicken curry with cauliflower and peas for two

    • mpo on September 06, 2021

      This was good, took some time so maybe not a work night recipe. This can feed more than two, we had plenty of leftovers with generous portions for two.

Poultry enthusiasts unite! Go beyond the basic with 500 show-stopping chicken recipes.

Many cooks fall into a chicken recipe rut and make the same thing over and over again. Stay out of that rut with The Chicken Bible. The test cooks at America's Test Kitchen have cooked chicken almost every day for the last 25 years and so have discovered not only the very best way to cook every kind of chicken but they have also developed hundreds of great recipes. And the basics are only the beginning. Liven up a weeknight with One-Pan Peruvian Chicken with Cauliflower and Sweet Potatoes, impress dinner guests with a streamlined Cassoulet, or deploy your Instant Pot to make Chicken Bouillabaisse. Like fried chicken? We've developed 14 different kinds (so far), including Jack's current favorite, Japanese Fried Chicken Thighs, where marinating, dredging, then frying turns strips of chicken savory and succulent. Also like wings? We have 8 recipes for those, including our game-changing Korean-Style Fried Chicken Wings. We double-fry them so they stay extra-crispy under their blanket of spicy-sweet-salty sauce.

Learn the test kitchen's go-to methods, secrets, and proprietary techniques throughout this expansive resource: when to salt and when to brine; how to add flavor under the skin and over it; cooking in a sealed pot; and high-roasting versus low and slow. Discover the recipe that finally sealed the deal as Julia's, and the company's, all-time favorite way to roast chicken (and we've roasted a lot of chickens). Every cook needs recipes like these in their arsenal.
