A note about serious food allergies

This might not look like the delivery you're used to, and we aren't cooking the chicken in a tandoor, but what this meal lacks in authenticity it makes up for in flavor. And in 15 minutes or less? Your humble recipe description can't find a place she wants to order from in 15 minutes or less. (That might be more of a "her" problem.)

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.

  • If using salmon fillets, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Follow same instructions as chicken in Step 1, cooking until salmon skin side up first reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts 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 from burner. Transfer chicken to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    While chicken cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop cilantro (no need to stem).

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Carefully massage rice in bag to break up any clumps.

  3. 3

    Cook the Rice

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add shallot and slaw mix to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Stir in rice, 2 Tbsp. water, and chicken base. Cook until rice is warmed through, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    In a mixing bowl, combine curry powder, sour cream, cilantro (reserve a pinch for garnish), 2 tsp. olive oil, and 1 Tbsp. water.

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium-high heat. Add sour cream mixture to hot pan and bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, remove from burner. Add chicken and flip until completely coated.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing chicken with reserved cilantro. Bon appétit!
