Cooking Guidelines

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

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Halve cherry tomatoes. Stem and finely chop dill. Peel and cut shallot into thin strips. Zest lemon and halve. With a vegetable peeler, shave cucumber into thin ribbons, stopping when you reach the seeds. Mince garlic. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry.

  2. 2

    Season and Cook the Chicken

    In a medium pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tsp. olive oil. Coat chicken breasts with blackening seasoning (if you're sensitive to spice, use sparingly!) Add chicken breasts and cook on each side for 5-7 minutes, or until they reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Spices should char and blacken on surface of meat. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Salad

    While the chicken is cooking, prepare the salad. In a mixing bowl, combine the cucumber ribbons, dill (reserving a bit for garnish), cherry tomatoes, shallot, garlic, lemon zest to taste (reserving a bit for garnish), juice of half a lemon, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Let marinate for 5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Salad

    Add feta cheese and baby arugula to the salad and toss just before serving. Feta cheese is a Greek cheese made with sheep's milk. It has a wonderful briny flavor, which is a nice contrast to the spicy chicken.

  5. 5

    Plate the Dish

    Add a serving of salad to each plate. Place a blackened chicken breast next to the salad. Garnish with remaining lemon zest, dill, and half lemon, quartered.
