The cheeky chappies have certainly been busy in the kitchen lately - this wonderful book is their second release of the year! Never ones to shy away from a challenge, this time around Dave and Si are applying their signature down-to-earth approach to fantastic chicken and egg-based recipes. Filled to the brim with gorgeous ideas, handy tips and insightful techniques to learn, this is one you'll be into for years to come... * GREAT BRITISH FOOD * ...the Hairy Bikers' collection of recipes featuring either chicken, eggs or both is practical, well-illustrated and full of robust and flavoursome recipes. Their cheery approach makes the book fun to read and easy to use, while a major plus is the chapter on techniques, which includes advice on how to spatchcock and butterfly a chicken. The two main ingredients run the gamut of cookery delights, from soups and salads through chicken with carbs to puddings. We particularly enjoyed the chicken parmigianaand cherry clafoutis. -- Vanessa Berridge * SUNDAY EXPRESS * What I love about this cookbook is that it really does show how amazing chickens are and how much we rely on them for cooking, baking and eating. It covers a vast array of ideas, from simple soups and salads to pies, pasta and rice dishes - and there are some great ideas for making a little go a long way. -- Aldo Zilli * DAILY EXPRESS * Delicious recipes: Chicken biryani, lemon ice-box pie and an irresistible Black Forest pavlova - cracking chicken and egg dishes from the Hairy Bikers' latest book. * DAILY MAIL *
