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 Step 2, baking uncovered in hot oven until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 20-25 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Combine zucchini, red bell pepper, garlic salt, 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Bake uncovered in hot oven, 10 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add Chicken and Bake Meal

    Carefully remove tray from oven and push vegetables to one side of tray. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil. Pat chicken dry, and place in empty side of tray. Top chicken evenly with tomato pesto. Bake uncovered until vegetables are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 20-25 minutes.

  3. 3

    Add Cheese and Finish Meal

    While chicken bakes, crush crackers. Mix Parmesan and crackers in a mixing bowl. Set aside. Carefully remove tray from oven. Top chicken with mozzarella and vegetables with cracker-Parmesan mixture. Bake again uncovered until mozzarella is melted, 3-5 minutes. Carefully remove tray from oven. Rest chicken, 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, top chicken with basil pesto. Bon appétit!
