Winner, winner.

You might be thinking, “Not another chicken cookbook.” But we’ll insist. Yes! Yes, another chicken cookbook, from Diana Henry, one of Britain’s most beloved food writers. A Bird in Hand reminds us of what chicken can be: simple enough for everyday dinners, elegant enough for special occasions, soothing as a meal for one, and endlessly giving (the book has an entire chapter titled “The Remains of the Day: What to Do with the Rest of That Bird…”). Make Chicken with Shaoxing Wine, Crisp Radishes, and Pickled Ginger; make Persian Chicken with Pistachios and Mint; make Ginger Beer Can Chicken. Hope that there are leftovers. Invite us.
