A note about serious food allergies

We often say in this space "everything's better with butter" and we don't take back those words, but we're adding to them: everything's better with butter… and lemon… and pistachios. And it's even better on a crispy chicken, melting down to bring its perfect deliciousness with every bite. Is everything better with butter? Maybe not everything, but this meal certainly is.

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, 2, and 3, cooking until browned on one side, 3-4 minutes, then roasting, panko side up, until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Pork thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  • If using sirloin steak, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 2, and 3, cooking until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes, then roasting, panko side up, until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.
