To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with half the seasoning blend, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    If using salmon, follow same instructions, seasoning flesh side only.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side, covering pan after flipping chicken.

    If using regular salmon, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add salmon, skin side up, to hot pan and sear until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. If using wild-caught salmon, follow same instructions as regular salmon, except cook 3-5 minutes per side instead.

    Remove chicken to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim zucchini ends and cut into 1/4" slices on an angle.

    Divide butter into quarters.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add zucchini to hot pan and stir occasionally until browned, 4-5 minutes.

    Add corn, remaining seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt. Stir occasionally until vegetables are tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium-high heat. Add apple cider, honey, mustard, and demi-glace to hot pan and stir until combined. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, stir occasionally until liquid is reduced by half, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in butter, one piece at a time, until melted and smooth.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, drizzling sauce over chicken and garnishing zucchini-corn mixture with crispy onions. Bon appétit!
