Didn’t know this………

When choosing meat or poultry in the supermarket, look out for liquid on the bottom of the package. If it is there, it means the food has been frozen and thawed; the cells have ruptured, releasing some of the fluids. To store meat in the refrigerator, wrap it in a clean plastic wrap or waxed paper. The supermarket wrapping often contains residue.

Thaw it, use it………

 

Always use any thawed meat or poultry quickly, and do not refreeze it, since this will increase the risk of food poisoning when the meat is eaten.

Roasted Chicken…….

 

Let roasted chicken rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving to allow juices to be distributed throughout the meat. Standing the chicken up with bottom end up allows more juices to run into the drier breast area.

Cooking Chicken……..

 
Always cook chicken to a safe temperature of 165°F. You should use a meat or instant-read thermometer to check that the chicken is done. Insert it into the thickest part of the thickest piece, and just be careful the tip of thermometer isn’t touching bone, which can give you a false reading.

Barbecued Chicken

Came across a delicious and Diabetic Friendly Barbecued Chicken recipe to pass along to all of you. It’s from one of my favorite recipe sites, CooksRecipes. The Cooks site (http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html) has a large selection of recipes that will please all tastes and cuisines. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

Barbecued Chicken

Grilled chicken is juicier and tastes better when you brine it first—and the sweet and smoky homemade barbecue sauce is even “sweeter” without the extra calories from sugar.

 

 

Recipe Ingredients:

Barbecue Sauce:
3 cups reduced-sugar ketchup
1/4 cup SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend
1/3 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon paprika
11/2 teaspoons salt
11/2 teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons liquid smoke

Chicken:
1/4 cup SPLENDA® Sugar Blend
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup hot tap water
3 cups cold water
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

1 – For Barbecue Sauce: Combine all ingredients for barbecue sauce in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 20 minutes, or until slightly thickened. (Top with a splatter guard during cooking.)
2 – Use immediately or cool, cover, and refrigerate for up to 1 month.
3 – For Chicken: Combine Splenda® Sugar Blend, salt, and hot water in 1-gallon zipper-lock bag and shake to dissolve Splenda® and salt. Add cold water and chicken. Press air out of bag, seal, and refrigerate 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
4 – Remove chicken from brine and discard brine. Refrigerate chicken until half an hour before you want to grill it (up to 1 day). Pat chicken dry with paper towels and sprinkle all over with pepper. Let rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.
5 – Heat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate and coat with oil.
6 – Put chicken on grill, cover, and cook 5 to 7 minutes on one side. Flip chicken and brush with barbecue sauce. Cook another 5 to 7 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear (about 170°F | 80°C) on an instant-read thermometer).
7 – Coat chicken with 1 1/2 cups Sweet and Smoky Barbecue Sauce.
Makes 8 servings.

When grilling remember………

 
Wash everything after handling raw meat, and don’t reuse the plate that you used for holding or preparing uncooked meat. Food safety first!
