A note about serious food allergies

“Fricassee” is a classic French preparation, with pieces of meat, fried or stewed, cooked in a white sauce. (You know the French with their sauces!) We've got the white cream here, rich and delicious, with a splash of sherry. You know the French and their… poblanos? That's where the Southwest comes in! Poblano, sweet corn, and taco seasoning bring the Tex-Mex to Paris. You know Home Chef and its fusion!

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 filets mignon, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Leave steak whole, if desired.

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as chicken breasts in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner. Leave steaks whole, if desired.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water in medium pot is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 10-12 minutes.

    Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.

    While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/2" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with seasoning blend.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    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 from burner. Remove chicken to a clean cutting board and let cool, 5 minutes.

    Once cool enough to handle, cut into 1/4"-thick slices.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add poblano and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Add corn and wine. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally, 1 minute.

    Add 1/3 cup pasta cooking water, cream base, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Return to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce thickens, 3-5 minutes.

    If sauce is too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  5. 5

    Add Chicken and Pasta and Finish Dish

    Add sliced chicken and pasta and stir until combined and heated through, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing pasta with cheese. Bon appétit!
