Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For home cooks who consider roasted chicken the go-to meat for many meals, this focused book is a helpful guide. It opens with 20 appealing recipes for roast chicken, from simple--like roast chicken with basil, scallion, lemon butter, and potatoes--to more advanced, such as salami-barded, salt-roasted chicken with fennel slaw, and roast chicken with morcilla sausage and pimentón de la Vera. Then there are sides: an assortment of potato recipes, plus such veggies as roasted cauliflower with dry-cured black olives and parsley leaves. Answering the question "What else can I do with roast chicken?" are recipes for roast chicken salads (including chicory salad with roast chicken, crispy croutons, and toasted garlic vinaigrette) and soups (black bean and ancho chile soup with roasted chicken, cilantro, and lime). This cookbook's homespun quality resonates with the subject matter--and the recipes are inspiring and varied enough to make eating chicken often an interesting proposition. (Oct.)
Library Journal
As the food editor of La Cucina Italiana magazine and coauthor of two cookbooks (The Craft of Baking; Olives and Oranges), Fox knows her kitchen. Like Tony Rosenfeld (150 Things To Make with a Roast Chicken), she shares her love of this traditional dish. Both books show cooks how to roast a chicken, but while Rosenfeld relies on marinades, rubs, and a grill, Fox often places the flavorings between skin and meat and puts the bird in the oven. From purchasing to roasting to the leftovers, Fox carefully guides readers on the best techniques. She even includes sides to accompany the dish. Using an occasional exotic ingredient, such as Sriracha sauce or fennel pollen (for which she includes sources), Fox presents roast chicken with variations (Roast Chicken with Mustard Butter, Peruvian Roast Chicken).Verdict Recommended for foodies and chefs wanting to move beyond the basic roast chicken.—Ginny Wolter, Toledo-Lucas Cty.

    My favorite new cookbook!

    A Bird in the Oven and Then Some by Mindy Fox has fast become my favorite new cookbook. What a brililant idea to create 20 new (and delicious) ways to roast a chicken. You have to try the Peruvian Roast Chicken and The Roast Chicken with Mustard Butter. But event better than the 20 roast chicken recipes are the recipes that follow for soups, salads, pasta dishes, and sandwiches that use roasted chicken. I now make 2 roast chickens on Sunday -- one to enjoy for dinner Sunday night and another to make some of the other wonderful recipes to enjoy for lunch and dinner the next couple of days. Every home cook should have a copy of A Bird in the Oven and Then Some in their cookbook library.
