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 mahi-mahi fillets, pat dry and halve. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 3, adding topping and searing, topping side down first, until fish reaches minimum internal temperature, 3-5 minutes per side. No need to roast.

  • If using sirloin steak or NY strip steak, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 3, searing, topping side down, 2-3 minutes, then roasting, seared-side up, until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Sauce

    Trim ends off green beans, if necessary.

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

    Combine mustard, apricot preserves, sugar, 2 tsp. water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Prepare and Sear the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry.

    Place pretzel crumble on a plate. Transfer chicken to plate with pretzel, covering one side completely and pressing gently to adhere. If you receive whole pretzels, finely crush pretzels until consistency of breadcrumbs. For best results, place in a plastic bag and crush with a heavy object. Combine pretzels and a pinch of salt on a plate.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 5 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan, pretzel side down. Cook until golden brown on one side, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Roast the Chicken

    Transfer chicken, pretzel-side up, to prepared baking sheet. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    Roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 6-8 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Rest, 3 minutes.

    While chicken roasts, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Cook the Green Beans

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium-high heat.

    Add green beans, white portions of green onions, 1/4 cup water, and garlic salt to hot pan. Cover and cook until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water, cover, and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in butter until melted and green beans are coated.
