Chicken is the focus of the premiere episode, one of the most versatile ingredients, this protein can lack flavor, and is easily overcooked if not prepared properly, and Mary teaches how to make it shine in four different ways, including a classic roast chicken, comforting chicken noodle soup, savory chicken stir fry, and cheesy, crispy chicken parmesan. Chicken will never be boring or dry again.
