01-Dear Friends

Serves: 5



Don't you love the ease of buying a rotisserie chicken? You can make warm, inviting--and surprisingly simple--meals starting with a ready-to-eat rotisserie chicken. This versatile bird can be the star of the meal, when supported by easy appetizers, sides and dessert. Try the easy menus (see Easy Dinner Menus) like the Family Night Dinner menu or the Brunch Is On menu--dinner will play to a full house!

Or maybe you'd like to use a rotisserie chicken as a starting point for recipes-it's a snap. You'll find more than 125 clever recipes for that store-bought rotisserie chicken you just picked up. Enjoy creating delicious dishes such as Mom's Homey Chicken Soup (see Super Soups, Stews and Chilies), Mediterranean Chicken
Salad (Speedy Salads) or Chicken Divan (Main Dish Magic)-who would guess they began from a rotisserie chicken?

Check out the WING IT! tip that accompanies each recipe for helpful information about the ingredients, suggests tasty substitutions or time-saving tactics, or simple additions to make dinner extra special. And if you're short on time, be sure to check out the SUPER EXPRESS recipes which can be prepared in just 20 minutes or less. A bird in the hand was never so convenient!

In addition, there's a useful overview of yields, carving tips and storage ideas for your fridge and freezer. The Pantry Planner (see Build A Meal Tonight) will help you create a well-stocked kitchen, so when you bring your chicken home, you'll be able to pull together a great dinner, without any fuss or bother. And cleanup is a breeze, since you don't mess up the kitchen roasting a chicken. It's minumum fuss and maximum results for time-crunched home cooks.
