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
  1. 1

    Make the Cordon Bleu Potatoes

    Halve potatoes. Cut halves into 1/2" half-moons.

    Place potato slices on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and 1/4 tsp. salt. Massage oil and salt into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until browned and tender, 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

    Carefully, push potatoes together and top with cheese and bacon. Baking sheet will be hot; use a utensil. Roast again until cheese melts and bacon is crispy, 3-5 minutes.

    While potatoes roast, make BBQ sauce.

  2. 2

    Make the BBQ Sauce

    Combine BBQ sauce, half the honey, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Taste, and add remaining honey, if desired. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry.

    Cover chicken breasts with plastic wrap and use a heavy object to pound to an even 1/2" thickness.

    Combine 2 Tbsp. water and flour in another mixing bowl until no lumps remain. Place panko on a plate.

    Add pounded chicken to water-flour mixture and coat completely. Transfer to plate with panko and flip until coated, pressing gently to adhere.

    Place coated chicken on a plate. Repeat with second piece.

  4. 4

    Fry the Chicken

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add canola oil. Let heat, 5 minutes.

    After 5 minutes, test oil temperature by adding a pinch of panko to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

    Lay chicken breasts away from you in hot oil and flip every 4-5 minutes until golden brown and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes.

    Transfer chicken to towel-lined plate.

    While chicken cooks, cook green beans.

  5. 5

    Cook Green Beans and Finish Dish

    Place another large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add green beans to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes.

    Stir in 1/4 cup water, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and cook until green beans are tender, 4-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
