A note about serious food allergies

Back in our youth, a certain pop star with one name had a hit record with a song called “Dress You Up.” That song comes to mind when pondering this chicken, not in the least because it’s a big 80s music fan. All jokes aside, this bird is adorned with flavor: sweet and slightly spicy BBQ and chipotle mayo underneath, and crispy onions all over its body (well, breast). Could've been worse; we could've tried to write this description to “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”

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 salmon, pat dry, and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. In Step 2, roast cauliflower, 13-15 minutes. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 3 and 4, searing flesh side, 2-4 minutes, then roasting seared side up until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-10 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate. Cut cauliflower florets into bite-size pieces. Coarsely crush crispy onions. In a mixing bowl, combine BBQ sauce, green portions of green onions, and half the chipotle mayonnaise. Taste, and add remaining chipotle mayonnaise if desired. Set aside. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Start the Cauliflower

    Place cauliflower on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and seasoning blend. Massage oil and seasoning into cauliflower. Spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until starting to brown, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cauliflower will finish cooking in a later step. While cauliflower roasts, cook chicken.

  3. 3

    Start the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to empty half of baking sheet.

  4. 4

    Finish the Chicken and Cauliflower

    Top cauliflower evenly with cheese and white portions of green onions. Roast again until cauliflower is 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, spreading chipotle-BBQ mixture evenly on chicken, then topping with crushed crispy onions, pressing gently to adhere. Bon appétit!
