Mindy Fox presents 20 new ways to roast a chicken, as well as 80 delicious ideas for sides and dishes to make with the surplus. Her exuberance and love for pure ingredients and straightforward, vibrant flavors comes across in smart upgrades on uncomplicated classics, such as Greek Roast Chicken with Caper Butter, Roast Lemons, and Skordalia and Farroto with Roast Chicken and Herbs, and inspired new ideas, like Salami-Barded, Salt-Roasted Chicken with Fennel Slaw and Winter Roast Chicken Salad with Fennel, Blood Orange, and Pistachio.

More than just another chicken book, this is an engaging and exciting take on a beloved dish. Making use of easy techniques, Mindy Fox creates beautiful and outrageously good dishes that express a well-traveled palate, including Peruvian Roast Chicken with Avocado Salad, Cordoban Gazpacho with Shredded Roast Chicken, and Chinese Roast Chicken Buns with Scallion and Spiciy Hoisin Sauce.

Editorial Reviews

San Jose Mercury News, 6/26/13 - Jackie Burrell
Call it an encore or a delicious "chicken part deux" — just be aware that if you already have a copy of "A Bird in the Oven," Mindy Fox's award-winning 2010 tome, you already have this book. Fox's new, hot-off-the-press "Perfectly Roasted Chicken" is simply the paperback imprint. It may be a repeat, but it's repeating a winner with 20 ways to roast a chicken and dozens of sides, soups and salads by the food editor of La Cucina Italiana magazine. Some of the recipes — roasted parsnips with za'atar, for example, or asparagus and peas with lemon and tarragon — are designed to accompany the glorious chicken, roasted with fresh basil-lemon butter or berbere spices. Others showcase the tasty leftovers in, say, a Thai coconut soup or rice salad with mint pesto and peas.

Tasting Table
“Fox takes the poultry through its paces, with recipes for classic, tea-brined and porchetta-style-iterations, and more.”
