Chicken takes center 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.

I loved this cookbook and thought it was definitely one of the best cook books I've used in a decade. I tried maybe four recipes, chicken with cilantro, chicken with cream morel sauce and a few others.

I tried quite a few recipes. No disasters, no spectacular dishes.

I did not mark a single recipe to try until I reached page 168, but then I went crazy and found about ten--all in the chapters "summer and smoke" and "pure comfort." Ahhh.
