Quick from Scratch Chicken Cookbook was recently released by Food & Wine magazine.

“It is a part of a series of cookbooks to be published. The next to come is Quick from Scratch Italian,” explains Kate Heddings, senior editor for the magazine who is overseeing the editing of future cookbooks.

She adds that people love chicken and “here at the magazine when we do a story on chicken it is hugely popular.”

The book also offers leftover ideas to stretch recession budgets without stinting on flavour and texture.

The book also features wine pairing recommendations explaining why certain wines go with a particular chicken dish.

So whether the cook wants to treat the family or guests to curry, soup, stew, salad, sandwiches or a grilling choice, it’s bound to be in this cookbook.

Here is a recipe for chicken wings.

Orange-Glazed Chicken Wings

250 ml (1 cup) fresh orange juice (from about 2 oranges)

30 ml (2 tbsp) grated orange zest (from about 3 oranges)

6 cloves garlic, minced

50 ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce

15 ml (1 tbsp) brown sugar

7 ml (1 1/2 tsp) salt

2 ml (1/2 tsp) fresh ground black pepper

2 kg (4 lb) chicken wings

Heat oven to 200 C (400 F). In a large bowl, combine orange juice with the orange zest, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Add chicken wings and toss to coat.

On two large baking sheets, arrange wings in a single layer. Reserve 50 ml (1/4 cup) of the orange mixture and spoon the rest of the mixture over wings. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn wings over and baste with the reserved orange mixture. Cook until just done, about 10 minutes longer.

Makes 4 servings.

Wine recommendation: Sweet, salty and spicy, this dish really needs a wine with good acidity, moderate alcohol and just a touch of sweetness. Look for a low-alcohol German Kabinett Riesling.
