Dinner gets steamy
Chicken can be hot and steamy for dinner… in more than one way. Really. This is especially true if you prepare the bird using one of the recipes from the Fifty Shades of Chicken cookbook.
If you couldn't tell from the title, this cookbook is a parody of the wildly popular novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. The 50 chicken recipes and several sultry-poultry images in the cookbook will definitely whet your, ahem, appetite.
Just like the seductive style of the novel, each chapter of the cookbook, written by FL Fowler (the pen name of the author who is apparently a food-industry professional), provides insight into the escapades of Miss Hen and Mr. Blades and the techniques they practice in the kitchen. This clever cookbook is filled with delightful recipes perfectly appropriate for a family dinner, although you might want to follow along while the kids are away.
Whip up dinner
There are only three chapters to the cookbook, but they're filled with mouthwatering recipes:
The Novice Bird: Popped-Cherry Pullet (roasted chicken with cherries and herbs) and Hot Rubbed Hen (roasted chicken with harissa, preserved lemons, chickpeas and mint)
Falling to Pieces — Chicken Parts and Bits: Dripping Thighs (roasted chicken thighs with sweet-and-sour onions) and Pound Me Tender (crispy chicken tenders with cashews and coconut curry sauce)
Birds Gone Wild — Advanced Techniques: Chicken Under the Covers (creamy chicken pot pie) and Flame-Licked Chick (grilled chicken with tandoori spices)
The Fifty Shades of Chicken cookbook goes on sale Nov. 13. If you know someone who wants to dominate dinner, this could be the perfect gift. To order the book visit www.fiftyshadesofchicken.
