I would say add to taste :) Great post and food for thought :)

I've never had that in a recipe but if I did I think I'd skip the recipe! I need exact when I'm first making it. I'll change it up the next time I make it but I can't have generic amounts!

I am curious too, what is a generous amount? How generous is generous?

Huh, I never considered using olive oil for chicken, anyway I like to use shortening, and use about one half inch to fry my chicken up with. :)

I've heard that too much of anything is not for you.

It seems to me that it would be a whole lot more sensible if they simply recommended the amount used by the average person....
&marguicha I agree that it's not a measure...
&scyprincess LOL! yes! Make sure you condition your hair with a generous amount and be sure to shower reasonably early after you make the chicken with a generous amount of stuff. And don't forget a pinch of salt. I also happen to think it could use a glug or two, &DoorwayOne &rpatriot

I don´t mind such words and use as much as I think it´s right. The wording is absurd: that is not a measure.

Generous amount probably means more than what it should be.

I absolutely love posts like this. You have given us something to think about. Thanks. I really enjoyed it.

It depends, a generous amount of say cookies is enough to place in both hands, but if it is calling for a generous amount of liver, well that fits in a thimble LOL

I was told it generally meant a handful ( in the cup part of your palm, which amounts to about a 1/4 cup ) if that helps any

A couple of glugs? Depends on what the flavor is. A generous amount of sesame oil would ruin a dish. Not so with other subtle flavors.

Well, obviously it's not going to affect the recipe if they don't give an exact measurement, so you can just add to taste, I'd think!

Does it mean, "Whatever looks like it will work?"

Rachel Ray would say we should "eyeball it". Lol. I guess it means to use as much as we deem necessary.

A generous amount of liquor and a generous amount of olive oil are different I bet :-P
