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 20 oz. diced chicken, follow same instructions as 10 oz. diced chicken, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as diced chicken in Step 3, breaking up until beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as diced chicken in Step 3, breaking up until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Drain and rinse beans.

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

    Pat diced chicken breasts dry.

  2. 2

    Bake the Muffins

    In a mixing bowl, combine muffin mix and 1/4 cup water until a thin, pancake-like batter forms. If too thick, add 1 Tbsp. water.

    Divide batter evenly into four cups of prepared muffin tin.

    Bake on middle rack in hot oven until muffin tops are lightly browned and start to crack, 14-17 minutes.

    While muffins bake, cook chicken

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

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

    Add 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. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Chili

    Return pot used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, white portions of green onions, corn, and bacon. Stir occasionally until green onions are fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

    Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains in pot.

    Add 11/2 cups water, chicken base, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until beginning to thicken, 4-5 minutes.

    Add 3 oz. beans and chicken. Stir occasionally until heated though, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
