You know what they say—like mother like daughter. Humph! Try telling that to chicken and egg. With no resemblance in looks, flavor, or foodie ambitions, this mother-daughter duo is rarely on the same menu page and spends an ungodly amount of time fighting on which came first.

We think a healthy reconciliation is possible in our daily diet, so give both mama and baby clucksters some love in the following egg recipes and chicken recipes:
