There are more than thirty ideas for preparing boneless, skinless chicken breasts. And ten things to do with a leftover roast chicken or that rotisserie bird purchased on the way home. Get the idea?

The Ultimate Cook Book: 900 New Recipes, Thousands of Ideas 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

This book is a great resource, a reference even, for any cook. It's comprehensive in scope and provides variations and alternative methods of preparation and serving. The directions are written in an easily-readable fashion. I highly recommend it for beginner cooks, but almost as much for experienced cooks as well since we can all benefit from some new knowledge, new tricks and skill sharpening and The Ultimate Cook Book offers all of that.
