Which came first, the chicken recipe or the egg recipe? Chances are if one or both are on a plate in front of you, the question becomes irrelevant. The real question would be what to eat first. But such philosophical questions can wait for another day. First, for both chicken and egg dishes, the other ingredients must be considered, including how much of each to include.

The Fred & Friends Nested Measuring Cups take the quandary of the chicken and the egg to a new level. The nesting cup set consists of a chick, an egg and a chicken that all store together in one neat package. Each half of each component is a measuring cup, making it so that the kitchen tool is comprised of six different measuring cups: one-quarter cup, one-third, one-half, two-thirds, three-quarters, and one full cup.

Ham? Cheese? Mushrooms? These are all relevant questions to ponder for a variety of chicken and or egg dishes. Whatever the choices turn out to be, measuring cups help to provide consistent results. Certainly, ingredient choices are much more delicious to consider than simply wondering if it was the egg or the chicken that came first. But no matter what the question is, figuring it out with these fun measuring cups is as easy as (chicken pot) pie.
