Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Good-quality roasted chickens are available at most supermarkets and delis now, so using them as a timesaving "secret ingredient" in all sorts of dishes is a great idea. Food writer Williams presents recipes for soups, salads, casseroles and stews, sandwiches, and more, along with a selection of gravies and glazes and a handful of side dishes. But now that there are so many excellent convenience foods in the market, including many from ethnic cuisines, it's too bad that she relies on so many of the less-than-wonderful old standbys, such as canned potatoes and French-fried onion rings. Nevertheless, the title alone guarantees demand, and busy family cooks will certainly find some ideas here. For most collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
