What do you do with a roast chicken?

Saut it, sauce it, stew it, slaw it. Simmer it in soup. Toss it in a salad. Roll it in a wrap. Cook it in a cozy casserole.

Boston chef Tony Rosenfeld celebrates everyone's favorite bird, from his spins on homey classics (Grandma Pauline's Chicken Paprikash) to snazzy sophisticates (Summery Italian Chicken Salad with Fennel & Pears).

First you take a chicken...

Supermarket roast chicken makes a fine base for all 150 recipes. Got a bit more time? Then Tony will show you how to roast chicken for flavor that no store-bought can rival. Roast a chicken (or two ) on Sunday and enjoy weeknights of scrumptious, hassle-free meals.

Creative recipes and terrific tips make this a book full of refreshing answers to the eternal question, 'What's for dinner?'

Bold new takes on casseroles, skillet meals, stews, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and more...

From maple-glazed to southwest-rubbed and cornbread-stuffed, from Chinese salt and pepper to French bistro with lemon and thyme.
