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 shrimp, pat dry. Cook until pink and shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut potatoes into 1/4"-thick fries. Pat dry.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions.

  2. 2

    Roast the Fries

    Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and ranch seasoning. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven until golden-brown and tender, 28-30 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

    While fries roast, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Chicken Nuggets

    Pat chicken dry and season all over with a pinch of pepper.

    In a mixing bowl, combine tempura mix and 2 Tbsp. water until a thin batter forms. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until a pancake batter-like consistency is reached. Add chicken and gently toss to coat.

    Place panko on a plate in an even layer. Working in batches, place chicken on plate with panko, pressing gently to adhere to all sides. Rest, 3 minutes.

    Repeat with remaining pieces.

  4. 4

    Cook the Chicken Nuggets

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add canola oil. Let oil heat, 5 minutes.

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

    Working in batches, carefully add chicken to hot pan. Cook until golden-brown all over and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 1-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Transfer chicken nuggets to towel-lined plate.
