Staff Reviews

    Let me preface by stating that I am the only McLean & Eakin staff member who read (and enjoyed) 50 Shades of Grey. So, naturally, when Fifty Shades of Chicken came into the store I was curious. Okay, curious is an understatement. I spent at least 10 minutes in awe over this cookbook. At first, it was because behind every picture of a dish there was a well-toned man. However, once I read some of the recipes awe quickly changed to intrigued. I had to purchase this cookbook and test some of the recipes out. The book offers new and the occasional spin on old recipes as well as options to prepare and cook a chicken that I never knew were possible. My favorite dish was the "White Wine-Steamed Chicken Breasts With Sesame Oil and Scallions". I will admit, I was a little apprehensive about steaming my chicken in white wine, but trust me, it is AMAZING. This dish is incredibly flavorful, healthy, and easy to make. While titles of some of the dishes, such as "Dripping Thighs", will turn you fifty shades of red, the recipes will turn you fifty shades of satisfied.

Dripping Thighs, Sticky Chicken Fingers, Vanilla Chicken, Chicken with a Lardon, Bacon-Bound Wings, Spatchcock Chicken, Learning-to-Truss-You Chicken, Holy Hell Wings, Mustard-Spanked Chicken, and more, more, more!
Fifty chicken recipes, each more seductive than the last, in a book that makes every dinner a turn-on. 
“I want you to see this. Then you’ll know everything. It’s a cookbook,” he says and opens to some recipes, with color photos. “I want to prepare you, very much.” This isn’t just about getting me hot till my juices run clear, and then a little rest. There’s pulling, jerking, stuffing, trussing. Fifty preparations. He promises we’ll start out slow, with wine and a good oiling . . . Holy crap. “I will control everything that happens here,” he says. “You can leave anytime, but as long as you stay, you’re my ingredient.” I’ll be transformed from a raw, organic bird into something—what? Something delicious.
So begins the adventures of Miss Chicken, a young free-range, from raw innocence to golden brown ecstasy, in this spoof-in-a-cookbook that simmers in the afterglow of E.L. James’s sensational Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Like Anastasia Steele, Miss Chicken finds herself at the mercy of a dominating man, in this case, a wealthy, sexy, and very hungry chef.  

And before long, from unbearably slow drizzling to trussing, Miss Chicken discovers the sheer thrill of becoming the main course. A parody in three acts—“The Novice Bird” (easy recipes for roasters), “Falling to Pieces” (parts perfect for weeknight meals), and “Advanced Techniques” (the climax of cooking)—Fifty Shades of Chicken is a cookbook of fifty irresistible, repertoire-boosting chicken dishes that will leave you hungry for more.

With memorable tips and revealing photographs, Fifty Shades of Chicken will have you dominating dinner.
