Spicy Chicken sauté w/ Chicken & Garlic Rice (Recipe)


Spicy Chicken Sauté w/ Chicken & Garlic Rice

Recipe by Rob Watts 


What You’ll Need: For The Chicken Sauté 

1 Package of Purdue Pre-Cooked Sliced Chicken (Southwestern Style)

2 Celery Sticks, Sliced/Chopped

1/2 Bermuda Onion, Diced

1/2 Teaspoon of Sriracha Sauce

1/2 Teaspoon of Adobo Seasoning

1 Cup Teriyaki Sauce

1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic

Olive Oil

What You’ll Need: For The Rice

1 Small Package of White Rice (Preferably Uncle Bens)

Chicken Stock (Any Brand)

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder 

What To Do:

Coat your pan with just enough olive oil to cover the surface of the pan. Set on medium heat. Add your minced garlic. Next, add your celery and onions that you chopped and diced. Sauté for five minutes, then add your chicken to the pan. The chicken is pre-cooked so it won’t take long for it to brown in the pan. Make sure your meat and celery and onions are cooking evenly. Next, pour your teriyaki sauce over the mix, along with Sriracha sauce and stir consistently. Finally, add your Adobo seasoning and continue to stir. 

For your rice, it’s very simple. Add an equal amount of chicken stock to the exact amount of rice you are cooking. Put them both together in a pot and cook (and stir continually) over medium heat. Once your rice becomes puffy, add your garlic powder and continue to stir consistently until rice is completely puffed and free of liquid. Now, turn off the heat and cover your pot with a lid, and let stand 10 minutes. This allows the rice to finish cooking properly without over cooking and possibly burning. 

Once you are finished, plate both your rice and chicken to your liking and garnish it with anything you desire. Enjoy! Serves 1-2

Lemon Pepper & Garlic Turkey Recipe


Lemon Pepper & Garlic Turkey Recipe
By Rob Watts

Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re looking to put a different spin on your annual meal this year, here’s a delicious alternative to the traditional recipe without compromising the flavors that your family and guests have come to expect from your table.

This is what you will need:

A large turkey. Between 15-20 lbs.
1/4 cup of soft butter.
Salt and Ground Pepper
Minced Garlic (1 Tablespoon
Fresh Rosemary (2 tablespoons)
Dijon Mustard (1 tablespoon)
Lemon Zest (1/2 teaspoon)
Chicken Broth (2 cups)
Lemon Pepper seasoning
Dried Thyme (1 teaspoon)
Fresh Lemons (5-6)

How to make the turkey:

Heat your oven to 325 degrees. Clean the turkey as you normally would by removing the heart, gizzards, neck, etc..

In a large mixing bowl, blend the butter, Garlic, Dijon Mustard, salt, pepper, herbs and lemon zest together. Keep your chicken broth separate from the mix.

Take your mixture, and spread a liberal amount using a tablespoon over the entirety of the turkey. (After you have stuffed your turkey.)
You can use this mixture in your stuffing as well!

After you have spread your herb mixture on the turkey, apply the lemon pepper seasoning directly from the shaker onto your turkey, covering the whole bird. Use as little or as much seasoning as you wish, depending on your taste. If you don’t want it too tangy and spicy, use less.

Place in your oven.

Once your turkey reaches a temperature of 180 on the thermometer, remove from the oven. Add the chicken broth to the pan. Cut two lemons in half and place them on 4 sides of the pan along with the broth. Return the turkey to the oven until cooking is complete.

Serve with addition lemon halves on platter as garnish.


Balsamic Chicken & Pasta Recipe


What you’ll need:

2 Table Spoons of minced Garlic

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (enough to coat a large skillet)

1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar

1-2 packages of sliced mushrooms

4 large boneless Chicken Breasts (skinless)

Teaspoon of Ground Black Pepper and Salt

1 chicken bullion cube

1 Box of Rotini Pasta

1large Ziplock Bag and 1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar for marinade

What to do:

Overnight, or at least 2 hours prior to cooking, tenderize your chicken breasts and place inside your large ziplock bag, along with salt and pepper and balsamic vinegar for marination.

At cook time, heat your skillet with a full coating of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.

Once heated, place your chicken breasts in the pan to cook. At the halfway point, place your mushrooms in the pan to cook along with the chicken.

Add your Chicken Bullion cube and stir into the mixture until completely dissolved.

Be sure chicken is fully cooked before moving on to your next step.

Once your chicken is fully cooked, place the breasts on a sanitary cutting surface and slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Keep aside for a few moments. (Keep mushrooms in your pan. You are going to be adding your sliced chicken back in the pan in a few moments.)

Your pasta pot should have the water boiling. Empty a full box of rotini pasta in the water and add a teaspoon of olive oil to the water to prevent pasta from sticking. Don’t go to far away. Continue stirring the pasta every couple of minutes to ensure it’s not sticking and every piece of pasta is distributed evenly through the boiling process.

At this point, you want to place your skillet with the mushrooms and sliced chicken back on the heat. Keep on low heat.

Add 1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer on low heat while your pasta continues to cook.

Your pasta should take no longer than 10 minutes to fully cook. It should be cooked, yet still firm. If it’s mushy, it’s over cooked. It’s best to stand by your cooking pot to check the consistency of your pasta til your desired texture is reached.

Strain your pasta (**do not cool or run under cold water)

Once pasta is fully strained from the water, add pasta to your skillet with the Balsamic Chicken and Mushroom mixture.

Stir in evenly using a large spoon until all the pasta is distributed evenly with your other ingredients.

Serve with your favorite garnished and enjoy!
