COOK CLUB – CHICKEN
Chicken is a wonderful choice in meal preparation for several important reasons. It’s a healthy choice as a reliable source of protein, as a lean meat it helps us build muscle and maintain a healthy weight. It’s easy and convenient to cook and you can choose any cooking method to prepare it. It’s a versatile crowd pleaser. Chicken appeals to many tastes and can be prepared for any flavor profile. In class we will discuss tools and equipment for a variety of preparations; choices and reasons for flavoring and cooking, and the best methods to handle and prepare it. As we gather in the kitchen to cook, we’ll work from these amazing recipes: Cornell’s Famous BBQ Chicken; My Momma’s Golden Chicken; Teriyaki Chicken Stir-fry; Chicken Saltimbocca; Jan’s Homemade Chicken Soup; Chicken Lettuce Wraps; and Michael Symon’s favorite and best Roast Chicken. We’ll enjoy a meal of these great foods, then Jan will lead a group discussion to let us evaluate our cooking experience. Like a book club but much yummier!
