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 |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 24 oz. diced chicken, follow same instructions, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken.

  1. 1

    Start the Chicken and Vegetables

    Pat diced chicken dry.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until browned, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step.

    While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions.

  3. 3

    Finish the Chicken and Vegetables

    Return pan with chicken to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish), tomatoes, and seasoning blend to hot pan.

    Stir occasionally, breaking up tomatoes, until mushrooms are softened and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes.

    Add demi-glace and 1/4 cup water and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce is slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Make Grits and Finish Dish

    Once water is boiling in small pot, stir in grits and 1/2 tsp. salt. Reduce heat to low and stir or whisk constantly until grits are smooth, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in cheese, butter, and a pinch of pepper.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping grits with chicken and vegetables, and garnishing with reserved green onions. Bon appétit!
