First of all, I'm sorry for my English, I'm not fluent.
I'm on a diet where I can eat only chicken breast and ground muscle (don't know the right word for this but I tried) as the meat (and fish, but I don't like it). Since I work like 10 hours a day and I don't come home for lunch, I have to take my food to the work. So I usually cook the meal at night and I have lunch for like 2 days.
But when I tried to grill the chicken, the taste wasn't very nice. The only condiment I'm using is salt. So, here is my question: can I grill a chicken breast at night and eat it at 12:00pm and 18:00pm? Are there any risks of getting food poisoning or something like that?
BTW, can someone give me some tips about maintaining the chicken/turkey breast in the refrigerator (and not in freezer)?
Any kind of cooked meat or fish and most perishable foods in general are safe as long as they are fully cooked and refrigerated within 2 hours (although the quality will deteriorate rapidly with fish).
If you plan to eat the leftovers twice then refrigerate two individual portions. Reheating the same item multiple times raises the risk of bacterial contamination. That is really the only thing you need to concern yourself with for short-term storage.

and here, tried a lot of things, but most of the advice and recipes didn't work. I'm using only salt and olive oil to marinate the chicken breast (and the oil that I put in the pan). Since I'm...When I'm about to grill a chicken breast, I usually cut the breast in very thin pieces. I put some oil in a square grill pan (exactly like this one) and turn on the stove (in a very high temperature... I turn the slice. My cousin is a chef, so he knows a lot about food. When I said that I pressed the breast chicken against the pan, he said to me not to. He told me just to leave the slice
This is something I've planned on trying but haven't wanted to spend the $ for experimentation. Buying sliced turkey for lunches at the deli is a tad pricey. At my local market I can get frozen turkey breast for a much better price per pound. But, the turkey breasts are 3+ pounds, and my household would use ~ 1# a week. I figure I can just get a turkey breast, roast, make slices, and freeze a couple of batches for upcoming weeks. So, for the question. Do turkey slices thaw out ok in terms of texture and taste?
my quandry is how to serve my pasta caprese as part of a meal with meat. In the past I've done grilled chicken breast on the side, but is there a way to make it a one pot meal or serve with another meat main so I'm not limited to chicken? Ideally I'd like to feature the flavors of the pasta as the main. I tried hot Italian sausage last night. It was OK, but I felt that the sausage competed...I absolutely love pasta caprese. I have a great recipe for it that provides perfectly creamy mozarella and tasty tomatoes and uses up the leaves on my basil plant. It's a great dish. I also don't
in a microwave? I don't necessarily need to know how to cook the meat from raw; I'm thinking more about the dry-rubbed steak I grilled last night becoming soggy when I try to reheat it at work. Techniques for raw, of course, are also encouraged if they exist. We only have access to a microwave, and although I could probably bring in a Foreman grill or something, I have a feeling it would...I recently was given a Corningware Microwave Browner as a gift, which looks very cool and promising, but I have not tried it yet. It seems to me a special apparatus such as this would be necessary
that haven't absorbed a lot of salt e.g. chicken in chicken soup. The only food I can tolerate is protein that is salted quite well e.g. salted, plump, tender and juicy as with brined chicken. This is why I...I am trying to brine a chicken and then cook it in a soup. I just can't seem to do it properly and have noticed varying results for reasons I cannot figure out. My basic method is: add 1.5l spring water to pot, add 30 grams of sea salt and mix until dissolved, add 1kg whole chicken (whole or small pieces), refrigerate for 6-12 hours (usually 12), then cook. I have noticed the following things
Possible Duplicate: How long can cooked food be safely stored at room/warm temperature? I put 2 large pork roasts into my roaster oven to cook overnight for pulled pork today. I started it around 8:30 p.m. and cooked it for an hour and a half at 350 then turned it down to 250 to cook all night. Sometime in the night my roaster oven bit the dust and when I awoke at 7:00 a.m...., but will it be safe to eat? I just don't know how long it had been off.

were packed away. The odd thing was the next day at lunch, the meat, which seemed uniformly brown the day before, was now a nice pinkish color in the middle (keep in mind I had cut the entire thing, so the slice I'm eating is brown on the outside and pink on the inside, maybe 1/2 thick). It also seemed much more tender. What happened here? The leftover roast seemed much better than the meat from the night before. I am discounting the probability that the roast beef fairy came by and swapped out our leftovers with better ones. Should I have let the roast rest longer? What is the procedure
The famous No-Knead Bread recipe said: Let dough rest at least 12 hours, preferably about 18, at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees (21 Celsius degrees). But I don't have the ideal 21 Celsius degrees room temperature or any device that can keep the dough 21 degrees for 18 hours. In summer, my room temperature is around 25~30 degrees, in winter, it's 3~10 degrees. My questions are: How long should I raise the dough under 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 degrees? I guess I shouldn't raise the dough for too long, say 48 hours, so how long is too long? Thanks. Update: (sorry for my
Duck livers fried in butter are my favorite "chef's snack". I sometimes opt for roast duck for dinner so I can have my 4:00 treat. I've recently found a source of same day slaughter duck livers in 1-2 pound quantities. This sounds like a great opportunity for a delicious appetizer. I'm thinking of a Chinese spoon presentation, but it needs something to make it special. Are there any classic presentations/pairings or other novel ideas?
