Chicken can be made into a thousand and one dishes, any time of the day, throughout the year. Chicken recipes do not have to be the same old thing everyday. This protein-rich white meat can be grilled, braised, stewed, roasted, and deep-fried. It can be ground and formed into meatballs, burger patties, spring roll filling, meatloaf, sprinkled on salads and pasta, mixed with vegetables, and other delicious chicken recipes. Best of all it can be made into a delicious broth, stock and soup. The spices, sauces and seasonings as well as the other ingredients you combine with the chicken will produce satisfying chicken recipes for the whole family.
Chicken is delicious cooked whole or served as grilled chicken breast fillets, spiced as buffalo chicken wings, or fried as legs or thighs. To keep them lean and low-fat, remove the fat and the skin before cooking. Grill, bake, or roast instead of deep-frying the chicken. The flavor profiles change from country to country, with its specialized sauces, spice rubs, marinades, and breading. Chicken can be used as a main course, or as a supplemental ingredient for soups, salads and casseroles.
As in meat recipes, observe safety practices when handling raw poultry. Wash knife, chopping board, and plates that contained the raw chicken to avoid cross contamination. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has issued guidelines on handling chicken. Cook “whole chicken to a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 °F (73.9 °C) as measured with a food thermometer. Check the internal temperature in the innermost part of the thigh and wing and the thickest part of the breast.”
Remember also not to overcook chicken especially the breast part, which will get dry and flavorless. Chicken meat absorbs most flavors so marinate them in your favorite spices (a combination or just one, like rosemary, which is perfect with chicken) when roasting or frying. The best chicken recipes are those wherein the chicken is moist, flavorful, cooked through and tender (but not mushy).
