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 filets mignon, NY strip steaks, or sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 3 and 5, searing 2-3 minutes per side, then simmering, stirring occasionally, until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 12-14 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Peel and cut potatoes into large chunks.

    Bring a medium pot with potato chunks covered by water to a boil. Once boiling, cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Reserve 1/2 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add sour cream, 2/3 the butter (reserve remaining for sauce), and 1/4 tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. If too thick, add potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    While potatoes boil, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" slices at an angle.

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into 1/4" dice.

  3. 3

    Start the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry and season both sides with poultry seasoning and a pinch of pepper.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned on each side, 2-4 minutes.

    Chicken will finish cooking in a later step.

    Transfer chicken to a plate. Keep pan over medium heat.

  4. 4

    Add the Vegetables

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil, carrots, onions, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until onions are tender and lightly browned, 5-7 minutes.

    Add remaining butter and flour. Stir until combined and no dry flour remains, 30-60 seconds.

    Add demi-glace, 11/2 cups water, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Stir to combine.

  5. 5

    Finish Chicken and Finish Dish

    Add mushrooms and seared chicken to hot pan and cover. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce has slightly thickened and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 12-14 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
