While fried chicken may be the South's iconic dish, when it comes to southern foodways, there are a lot of ways to love America's most popular fowl. Preparations range from Country Captain to Carolina Chicken Bog to Chicken and Parslied Dumplings and more. Here, Cynthia Graubart celebrates the bird in all its glory, southern style and beyond. This little cookbook packs all the know-how that cooks need to make irresistible chicken dishes for everyday and special occasions, from shopping and selecting to cutting up, frying, braising, roasting, and much more. Ranging in style from traditional southern to contemporary to international, fifty-three recipes are organized to help easily match the cut of chicken to the perfect recipe. Be assured that Graubart includes instructions for making the best fried chicken ever--seven different ways.

Graubart also brings together the chicken's culinary history with the popular culture and lore that surrounds chicken cookery in the South. She notes that the special Sunday Sabbath dinner was often built around a chicken--in fact, prior to the 1940s, chicken was sometimes more expensive than beef or pork. Today, the southern states lead the country in annual poultry production, and Kentucky Fried Chicken features throughout the American landscape. But you won't need take-out when you have Chicken in your kitchen.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

With its delicious recipes, Chicken: A Savor the South Cookbook might be the end-all-be-all cookbook for southern chicken recipes—and the best 53 chicken recipes that anyone would ever need. A real nuts-and-bolts go-to book!—Virginia Willis, author of Lighten Up, Y'all: Classic Southern Recipes Made Healthy and Wholesome and Okra: A Savor the South Cookbook

Cynthia knows her chickens, from buying to cooking to serving, and the techniques and history associated with them. Not only for southerners, this is an exceptional book for both the novice and experienced alike." —Nathalie Dupree, author of Nathalie Dupree's Shrimp and Grits

A delightful book! I love Cynthia Graubart's recollections of memorable home-cooked and restaurant chicken dishes in her home state of Florida, as well as the international diversity of other recipes, with dishes such as Arroz Con Pollo and Avgolemono—a nod to the diversity of today's South. And the arrangement of recipes by the cut of the chicken is very convenient for finding just the right recipe for the next meal. Chicken makes me eager to get into the kitchen and do a little chicken dance for myself.—Kathleen Purvis, author of Pecans: A Savor the South Cookbook and Bourbon: A Savor the South Cookbook
