On The Fly Delicious Chicken Recipes

There's no need to brood or worry when your time is tight and dinner isn't even started yet. Just come back here to these super easy to make chicken recipes. I think you'll find that either of these recipes can be ready in thirty minutes or less and their sure crowd pleasing recipes. It doesn't matter if your making these recipes for your family or guests I think you and the people eating them will think they really are something to crow about.

Money Saving Tip

If a recipe calls for chicken breast you can save money by using the more flavorful chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. Just remove the skin and bones from the chicken thighs and you'll have chicken that is a lot more flavorful than the breast and it's usually about a third the cost of chicken breast.

Purchasing Poultry

Be sure that any poultry you purchase is well with in the purchase by date on the package. Your packages should be well sealed and free of holes or tears. Poultry that is supposed to be frozen should be frozen solid.

Chicken Food Safety

You should never leave a package of chicken out to thaw on the counter because bacteria thrives at room temperature. The most accurate way to determine the doneness of chicken is to use a meat thermometer. Dark meat should register 180 degrees and breast meat 170 degrees. This is most easily done with an instant-read thermometer.

Never place cooked chicken on the same platter that held the uncooked meat. This often happens when people grill and it ends up making people sick. You should never refrigerate a raw or cooked whole chicken with stuffing inside the body. Always store the chicken and the stuffing separately.

Homemade Sanitary Bleach Solution

You should always clean up cutting boards, knifes, and counters where you have cut up raw chicken with a sanitary solution made of one part bleach to six parts water. Store this mixture in a spray bottle so you can spray and clean up easily.

Use A Plastic Cutting Board When You Work With Chicken

When you cut up and work with chicken always use a plastic cutting board because it's easier to clean up than a wooden one. And with wooden cutting boards you have the problems of cracks and bacteria grows in cracks. Wash your plastic cutting boards in hot soapy water or run them through the dishwasher.

Fresh Chicken Is Highly Perishable

You should know that fresh chicken is highly perishable. As soon as you arrive home from the market, wrap chicken in plastic wrap and then you can store it in the coldest part of your refrigerator for up to two days.

For longer storage, you can freeze properly packaged chicken parts for up to nine months and whole frozen chickens for up to a year.

Time Saving Tip For Quick Meals

Grill chicken thighs that you've removed the skin and bones from and while the chicken thighs are grilling sprinkle them with your favorite taco seasoning. When the chicken is cooked take a couple of forks and shred the chicken so you can freeze it and then on a busy day you can make chicken tacos or a chicken taco salad real fast.

You can also grill the chicken with out the taco seasoning and then when they are done shred the chicken and freeze it. On a busy day you can add barbecue sauce and have really great chicken barbecue sandwiches ready in just a few minutes. So no your family doesn't have to live on hot dogs.

Honey Dijon Mustard Sauce

You can make a delicious Honey Dijon mustard sauce by mixing a half cup of honey with a fourth cup of Dijon mustard. I do mine in the blender so it gets mixed together very well. Sometimes I add a half teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper to the mix.

I have a home deep fryer I cook my chicken in and that is the easiest way to do it. The best way to cook your chicken is to use a instant read thermometer and cook your dark meat chicken pieces to 180 degrees and your white meat chicken pieces to 170 degrees. This is an internal temperature I am talking about.

You will never believe how very good this fried chicken is until you make it and taste it. I think it's some of the best fried chicken that you'll ever taste. Once you make it post a comment and let me know what you think.
