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
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Quarter tomatoes.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Pat diced chicken dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add diced chicken to hot pot and stir occasionally until chicken browns and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Keep pot over medium-high heat.

  3. 3

    Start the Risotto

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil, rice, and white portions of green onions to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes.

    Add 1 cup boiling water from small pot and chicken base to pot with rice. Rice should just be covered by water. Stir often until nearly all water is absorbed.

  4. 4

    Finish the Risotto

    Add 1 cup boiling water and stir often again until nearly all water is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes.

    Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more “bite” or crunch, it's done. There may be water left.

    Remove from burner. Stir in garlic salt, half the cheese (reserve remaining for garnish), softened butter, and softened cream cheese. Cover and set aside.

  5. 5

    Make Bruschetta and Finish Chicken

    In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, pesto, green portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping risotto with chicken, bruschetta, and remaining cheese. Bon appétit!
