Cookbook Wednesday: Pierre Franey

Surprisingly, I do not remember exactly where or when I got this cookbook.  I say surprisingly, because I like it very much.  Really, what's not to love about recipes for great food in under an hour?

 I've made this chicken many times (and once used ham, which was an inspired substitution).  It is simply wonderful.
 I like the fact that he suggests and supplies recipes for at least one side for every main dish.
 He also gives instruction for somewhat obscure things, like fish broth or croutons.
 Even if you don't like the main dish, the sides are great.
 And he can even make plain ol' hamburgers sound some kind of fancy.
No doubt, this is one of my favorite cookbooks.  And now you see why!

This is Cookbook Wednesday, which I'm hosting while its lovely creator, Louise, is on sabbatical.  Leave a comment to link up!

I love that they suggest and supply a recipe for at least 1 side dish - great concept!

It's nice when they suggest a side because I tend to do the same old thing over and over.

It looks like a great cookbook! I've always wanted to try chicken with roasted grapes. YUM.

Sides are always just as good

Chicken breast with grapes that sounds interesting, will give it a try. Anything that is under an hour is good as well, like the sound of this book. Hope you are all well Diane

That does sound like a great cookbook! I'm a huge fan of sides and often prefer them to the main dish...

Do you know Amazon actually has this? I'm going to order it, because you had me at 60 minutes.
