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) |

  1. 1

    Cook the Wild Rice

    Bring a medium pot with wild rice and 1 cup water to a boil. Lower to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 20-23 minutes.

    If water remains after 23 minutes, keep cooking, 5 minutes.

    Remove from burner and set aside covered.

    While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and chop shallot.

    Coarsely chop mushrooms.

    Stem and coarsely chop parsley.

    Pat chicken dry. On a separate cutting board, cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a heavy object into an even thickness. Feel free to use a disposable gallon-size bag instead of wrap. Remove plastic wrap. Season chicken on both sides with a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

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

    Add chicken to hot pan and cook until golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add butter to hot pan and melt.

    Once butter is melted, add shallot and stir occasionally until tender, 2-4 minutes.

    Stir in mushrooms, demi-glace, mustard, half the parsley (reserve remaining for garnish), 1/2 cup water, and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until mushrooms are tender, 5-7 minutes.

    If sauce is too dry, add additional 1-2 Tbsp. water. Remove from burner.
