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 whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” pieces. Follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as chicken in Step 2, breaking up until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

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

  • If using shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as chicken in Step 2, cooking until opaque and shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince dill, leaves and stems. Zest lemon, halve, and juice. Pat chicken thighs dry, and season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. 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 heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken is lightly browned and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate. Keep pan on burner and raise heat to medium-high.

  3. 3

    Start the Orzo

    Add 2½ cups water, chicken demi-glace, 1 tsp. lemon zest, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, add orzo. Stir occasionally until tender and water is almost completely evaporated, 12-15 minutes. If water evaporates before orzo is tender, add another ¼ cup water.

  4. 4

    Finish the Orzo

    Stir chicken and spinach into hot pan. Cook until spinach is wilted, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Stir in 1 Tbsp lemon juice, butter, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper until melted and combined.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken and orzo with feta, crispy red peppers, and dill. Bon appétit!
