Cook the Book: 'Mr. Sunday's Saturday Night Chicken'


Before shooting his weekly Fox News Sunday broadcast, anchor Chris Wallace and his wife Lorraine have a tradition: chicken dinner. Over the course of the nine years that Lorraine Wallace has been married to Chris, she's come to terms with the fact that he's not a big fan of change, so keeping their weekly chicken dinners interesting was quite the challenge.

Instead of going with the same old roasted bird, Wallace created a whole roster of chicken recipes, familiar enough to please her husband and family yet exciting enough to stave off any poultry-related ennui.

If you're the sort of cook who always has a few thighs or breasts in the fridge, Mr. Sunday's Saturday Night Chicken is one of those cookbooks that will serve you well, expanding your chicken cooking repertoire with simple, seasonal recipes. Wallace has included everything from the usual chicken suspects —think Piccata and Coq Au Vin—to the fresh and new like Spring Chicken with Fennel and Artichokes. And since one can't live off chicken alone, Wallace has also included a whole roaster of chicken chicken serve alongs like Sweet and Sour Spring Carrots and Lemon Orzo.

This week we'll make every night a Saturday night chicken dinner with the help of Mr. Sunday's Saturday Night Chicken. Lorraine Wallace gave us a list of her top chicken recipe and we're going to be sharing them with you. Get ready for cool Chicken and Cashews in Lettuce Cups and barbecue perfect Skewers of Sage Chicken with Sweet Italian Sausage.
