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 sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken in Step 1, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil. While chicken cooks, cook butternut squash.

  2. 2

    Cook the Butternut Squash

    Trim and thinly slice green onions. Keep white and green portions separate. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add butternut squash, seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Cover, and stir occasionally, 5 minutes. Stir in white portions of green onions. Cover again, and stir occasionally until tender and lightly browned, 5-7 minutes. Remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Make the Almond Butter

    Coarsely chop almonds. Combine softened butter, almonds, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish
