Read A Bird in the Hand: Chicken recipes for every day and every mood Online Free - Chicken takes centre stage in Diana Henry's new collection of recipes for every day and every mood.
Chicken is one of the most popular foods we love to cook and eat: comforting, quick, celebratory and casual. Plundering the globe, there is no shortage of brilliant ways to cook it, whether you need a quick supper on the table after work, something for a lazy summer barbecue or a feast to nourish family and friends. From quick Vietnamese lemon grass and chilli chicken thighs and a smoky chicken salad with roast peppers and almonds, through to a complete feast with pomegranate, barley and feta stuffed roast chicken with Georgian aubergines, there is no eating or entertaining occasion that isn't covered in this book. In A Bird in the Hand, Diana Henry offers a host of new, easy and not-so-very-well-known dishes, starring the bird we all love.

Wow. I only recently discovered Diana Henry's cookbooks. Everything I've tried so far is top-notch, and there are many more recipes in here I can't wait to get to. Highly recommend this book.

Lots of inspiration here, although most of this I wouldn't be breaking out on a weeknight or even for picky kids. For myself though the book was lovely and plenty of things called my name. Nothing seemed fussy or too many steps

Comprehensive and inspiring with saliva inducing photography. Plenty of delicious ideas that are very different from my household's usual chicken meals. A couple of ingredients are expensive or hard to source, and some of the recipes weren't allergy-friendly. However, any proficient home cook sho...
