A chicken recipe rite of passage - on the phone

Last night my son cooked me a roast chicken for the first time and it got me thinking, and digging through some of the very best chicken recipes on allaboutyou

by Carol Muskoron

Last night I had a chicken that needed cooking but I was going to get home too late to cook it. Bah, I thought and then I called my teenage son who has never yet fried an egg and said, 'Listen! You're going to roast a chicken.' I took him through it step by step, as if I was in a control tower guiding in a plane flown by someone without a pilot's licence. This morning my colleagues - who'd all listened to me giving my instructions - asked how the roast chicken was. It was a rite of passage they told me, cooking your first chicken. And it got me thinking about how important it is to cook chicken and to cook it well. Inspired by my son's chicken success, I now aim to help the rest of the nation become great chicken cooks! So here are my favourite allaboutyou chicken recipes. Enjoy!
