Grilling Chicken………

Searing meat gives beautiful grill marks and adds that mouthwatering barbecue char to chicken. The key to a good sear is dry meat and a hot grill. First, pat the chicken skin with a paper towel to take out as much moisture as possible. A super-hot grill allows the chicken to get a good sear and is less likely to stick. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Clean and lightly oil hot grates. When ready, place the chicken on the grill (if using skin-on chicken, place skin side down on grill). Grill chicken, without turning, 6 to 10 minutes for boneless chicken and 10 to 14 minutes for bone-in. When it’s finished cooking, just like a good steak, chicken needs to rest.

Fried Chicken………….

The secret to succulent fried chicken starts with a marinade or brine, which keeps the chicken at its peak juiciness. Fried chicken traditionalists generally choose a buttermilk marinade while others swear by a brine, which is a mixture of sugar, salt and sometimes spices dissolved into water.

Place the breaded chicken into the 350 degree oil. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time. The chicken will drop the temperature of the oil so keep it as close to 350 degrees as possible. Fry each piece for 14 minutes, turning each piece about half way through, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Is it done yet – This method applies to chicken specifically. For properly cooked chicken, if you cut into it and the juices run clear, then the chicken is fully cooked. If the juices are red or have a pinkish color, your chicken may need to be cooked a bit longer.

Buying Chicken…………

The “sell-by” date is 7 to 10 days after the chicken was slaughtered and if properly refrigerated it should remain fresh 2 to 3 days after that date. If it is a “used-by” date, the chicken should be cooked or frozen by that date.

When choosing fresh chicken, avoid meat that show signs of freezing by feeling or looking for ice formation. When choosing frozen chicken, select one that is rock hard and shows no signs of freezer burn.

Is that chicken done grilling?……………

The perfect internal temperature is 165 degrees for dark meat, 160 degrees for white. If you don’t have an instant-read thermometer, you can always do a little cut into the middle to check that it’s just about opaque in the center.

Turkey or Chicken…………….

Turkey is fairly comparable to chicken in nutrients, but both its dark and white meat are slightly leaner. White meat has slightly less saturated fat than dark; skinless, boneless breast is leanest. Super-lean, lower in fat than other red meat.

Freezing Chicken……………..

When freezing Chicken be sure all packages are marked with the content and the date the chicken was frozen. Wrapping individual chicken parts in foil or with freezer wrap and then placing in a freezer bag will allow you to take out only the number of pieces you will need. And finally freeze fresh chicken as soon as possible to maintain the best quality.

Keeping your Chicken crispy……………..

After you’ve finished frying the first batch of your chicken, don’t let it get cold and soggy sitting on a pile of paper towels. Hold it hot in a 250° F oven! Placing the chicken on an oven-proof cooling rack set inside a quality baking sheet is the best way to keep the chicken from getting soggy. Nothing like a good Fried Chicken Dinner!
