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 ground turkey, follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 2, breaking up turkey until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 2, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Step 2, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Pat chicken thighs dry. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken thighs, white portions of green onions, and corn to hot pan. Stir occasionally until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  3. 3

    Make the Risotto

    Stir rice, 1 cup water, seasoning rub, and chicken broth into hot pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until liquid has reduced by half, 4-6 minutes. Remove from burner. Stir in cream cheese, 1 tsp. lime juice, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until combined and creamy. If too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping risotto with green portions of green onions, queso fresco, and crispy jalapeños (to taste). Squeeze lime wedges over dish to taste. Bon appétit!
