Today's speciality and more chicken recipes!!!

I took a look at my chicken recipes today and one chicken recipe caught my eye. It's one of our family favorites but since I started to work again, I haven't had much time to cook it :( So, I went to the grocery store, bought some ground chicken and made it as a Sunday's speciality. We all love chicken and are always looking for more chicken recipes

home style chicken burger

2 lb ground chicken
4 slices bread (squeezed)
1 egg
1/4 cup parsley(finely chopped)
1/2 teaspoon blackpepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 onion(minced)
1 clove garlic(minced)

Mix all the ingredients together squeezing with fingers to incorparete till smooth.
Shape into petties firmly. Serve in hamburger rolls with greens,
pickles, tomato slices, onion..Up to you guys!

If you like chicken and cook often probably you know this but if you are just starting to cook, I'd like to share a few tips about chicken with you guys;

-Never allow cooked chicken to sit at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

-Freeze uncooked chicken if it is not to be used within 2 days. If properly packaged, frozen chicken will maintain top quality in a home freezer for up to 6 months.

-Thaw chicken in the refrigerator, under cold running water, or in the microwave - never at room temperature, which provides bacteria with an ideal temperature to grow.

Do you use boneless- skinless chicken breasts often in recipes?

-Package them for the freezer in recipe-size portions. This lets you thaw only the amount you need and prevents extra pieces of raw chicken. Also cutting boneless skinless chicken breasts into pieces can be a slippery task. For the safer way, cut the chicken while it is partially frozen. It's much easier to handle:)

-Always cook chicken until well done, not medium or rare. When the chicken is completely cooked, the juices should run clear.

Enjoy cooking!
