Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Baked chicken and pumpkin risotto

    • trudys_person on November 02, 2014

      The recipe doesn't specify a size of baking dish. I used a 6 qt cast iron dutch oven and needed all the room. It comes out of the oven soupy, so it was easy to simmer in the Dutch oven. The recipe says it makes four servings, but they must be huge servings! I think eight servings would be more accurate. Very tasty and relatively easy to make.

  • Baked chicken, lemon and pea risotto

    • trudys_person on June 20, 2020

      Delicious and easy, but as with the Baked Risotto with Pumpkin, the serving portions are huge. This easily feeds 8. Made half the recipe and had 2 dinner servings and 3 lunch servings.

  • Baked couscous with lemon and parsley chicken

    • trudys_person on January 10, 2015

      Very tasty, and really easy to make. Definitely will make again. May add some vegetables next time. Supposedly serves 2, but easily could serve 6 if you just added one more chicken breast. This is the second recipe I've made in this book where the yield was wildly off.

Poaching, steaming, frying and roasting take you throught the gamut of textures from comfort-food tender to crisp and crunchy.'
