Chop a few vegetables while the oven preheats, grab a pound of chicken from your fridge, use your favorite fajita seasoning mix, and voila! Dinner will be on the table in no time at all. This recipe is for a basic chicken fajita filling, but you can serve it any way you want. Serve with flour tortillas, over rice, or with your favorite toppings like cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lime juice, or cilantro.

The Best Method to Grill Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts

Fri, 26 May 2017 17:05:06 -0700

The only thing more satisfying than drinking a beer while grilling is incorporating the beer into the grilled recipes themselves, like this beer-brined grilled chicken breast recipe. Inspired by grilled beer-can chicken but infinitely easier, this recipe starts out with skinless, boneless chicken breasts that are brined in a beer-salt-sugar solution. Why brine? Without getting too heady, the beer-salt-sugar solution tenderizes the meat, locks in moisture, and seasons the meat throughout. It's a foolproof method for some of the best grilled white meat ever. Even if you don't add any seasoning, the chicken will take on a salty, slightly sweet, and slightly malty flavor. Trust me, it's chicken you'll want to brag about. The only "downside" of brining is that it takes time - at least two hours. But if you prep the chicken in the a.m. or as soon as you come home from work, it's no big deal. Beer-Brined Grilled Chicken Breasts From Anna Monette Roberts, POPSUGAR Food Notes Here's a pro tip if you want to go the extra mile: pound each chicken breast in a ziplock bag, using a meat pounder or the bottom of a metal pot until the chicken breasts are even and about 3/4-inch thick. This will ensure faster, more even cooking. If you prefer to grill skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts, up the grill time to 10-15 minutes per side, or until the thermometer inserted in the middle of the chicken reads 160°F. Ingredients4 chicken breasts 1 12-ounce bottle of beer 1/4 cup kosher salt 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon spice mix of your choice (I used something similar to herbs de Provence) Vegetable oil or ghee (clarified butter), to coat the grill Directions Fit a resealable gallon-size ziplock bag inside a bowl (to prevent leaking). Combine all ingredients. Make sure chicken breasts are fully submerged in the brining liquid before sealing the bag and refrigerating for 2 hours and up to overnight. After 2 hours, head out to the grill. Make sure it's scraped clean before lightly coating the grill with vegetable oil or ghee. This will help prevent sticking. Preheat grill to medium-high (375°F-450°F). Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Discard the brine. Use tongs to place chicken breasts onto the grill, spacing them out a few inches apart. Cook 6-8 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the middle of the chicken breasts reads 160°F. Remove from grill and let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

We all know how to cut watermelon into cubes and slices, but how many times have your guests really been impressed with those shapes? One former NASA engineer, Mark Rober, figured out the coolest party trick that presents the fruit in a way you'd never imagine.

Rober takes two watermelons close in size - the first he skins completely by removing outer slices with a knife, then smooths its surface out with a dish scrub. The second watermelon is cut into two equal halves and then gutted entirely. Place the skinned watermelon into the empty vessel, and you've got yourself a twist-apart melon.

The Best, Most Unexpected Grocery Item to Buy at Costco

Fri, 26 May 2017 05:00:31 -0700

Hot tip: pick up some Costco steak the next time you visit the bulk warehouse. Costco has tons of grocery staples you rely on regularly, but steak is one of those special-occasion items that is not to be missed. My dad, an avid steak griller who has tried steak from butcher shops across the world, can attest to Costco steak's greatness - it's tender and full of delicate marbling and flavor. One of Dad's best friends, who makes high-end barbecue pits (Billy Twang), introduced him to these steaks. And recently, my boss asked if I ever bought steaks from Costco as it's her dad's favorite item to buy in bulk and freeze. I've heard three people sing praises about this particular grocery item in the span of a month - that's enough to convince me to spend a little more time in the meat department at Costco. Now, you can find all grades of meat at Costco - from more budget-friendly, USDA Prime cuts (~$11-$22 a pound) to organic, grass-fed cuts (~$24 pound) to American Wagyu filets ($99 a pound) to the crazy cream of the crop: Japanese Wagyu ($1200 for 12 pounds). Some of these cuts are found in stores and others can be purchased online and delivered fresh to your door. Dang if that isn't conveniently awesome. In case you need a little more convincing, take a look at a few of these steaks IRL. That red center. Those charred edges. The pools of savory juices. Try not to go weak in the knees . . . just try!

Related10 Ultracomforting Chicken Recipes From The Pioneer Woman You go into Ree Drummond mode and immediately raid your own pantry, digging for that jar of pasta sauce and pack of rigatoni you know you have somewhere.
