A note about serious food allergies

There are two types of great cheddar. There's the type your kids and grandkids talk about from the rap songs. (Pssttt… it means “money.”) And there's the cheddar straight outta Somerset, the cheese the US Department of Agriculture calls the most popular in the world. We're giving you Mr. Popularity featured on top of a succulent chicken breast and topped with crunchy potato sticks. We're not rich enough to say that cheese is the only cheddar we want, but after a few bites of this delightful dinner, we might reconsider.

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

Customize It Instructions

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, adding topping, then roasting until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Vegetables may need to continue roasting another 4-5 minutes.

  • If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, adding topping, then roasting until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 8-10 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • Protein thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner cut, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve any large butternut squash pieces to roughly match smaller pieces.

    Gently crush potato sticks.

    Trim and cut white portions of green onions into 1" lengths. Thinly slice green portions. Keep white and green portions separate.

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with blackening seasoning and a pinch of salt.

  2. 2

    Start the Vegetables

    Place butternut squash, poblano pepper, and white portions of green onions on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt.

    Spread into a single layer on one side of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven, 10 minutes.

    Vegetables will finish cooking in a later step.

    While vegetables roast, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Start the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken breasts to hot pan and sear undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Transfer chicken to empty half. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.

    In a mixing bowl, combine cheese and green portions of green onions. Top chicken evenly with cheese-green onion mixture, then potato sticks, pressing gently to adhere.

  4. 4

    Finish the Vegetables and Chicken

    Roast vegetables and chicken in hot oven until vegetables are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping vegetables with dressing (to taste). Bon appétit!
