It's winter, and a hearty chicken dinner is more or less the go-to. There are so many ways to prepare poultry, but so many of us get stuck in a routine. If you are getting bored with the winter recipes in your repertoire or just want to treat yourself or a friend, a new cookbook is always a fun buy.

And why buy any old cookbook, when there are so many great ones with fresh takes on this uber-popular protein.

These tomes have so much to offer -- some will make you laugh (see Fifty Shades of Chicken), some will offer you some seriously enviable new skills and others are just so beautiful, you'll want to leave them out on display.
