Ereka: Those look beautiful. So many people
cook chicken at home, but it can be tricky. You want to cook it all the way through but
you don’t want to overcook it until its dry and rubbery, right Chief.
Tim: Absolutely not. The goal here is to get a nice crust on the outside of the chicken
but keep it nice and moist on the inside. In order to do that you’ve got to cook it
to the perfect temperature on the inside. And the OptiGrill does that for you.
Ereka: That’s pretty much what it’s all about right?
Tim: That’s exactly right. So I’ve got a couple of chicken breast right here.
Ereka: Okay. Tim: So let’s get them seasoned up, I’ve
got one boneless and skinless here for you. The health person here.
Ereka: Thank you. Tim: And I’ve got one boneless and skin
on for me because I like that crispy, crunchy skin that you get on top of the grill. So
what I want to do is give you a simple salt and pepper for yours.
Erka: I like that. Tim: No, oil or anything, straight on the
chicken breast because you know the T-fal OptiGrill has non-stick cooking sides, so
you don’t have to worry about adding any extra oil if you don’t want to. And then
I’m going to put a little bit of fresh garlic on mine.
Ereka: Oh, that sounds good. Tim: Yeah, absolutely. And when it goes onto
the grill the garlic is going to get nice and crispy and that toasted garlic flavor
is just unbelievable. And then going to add in a little bit of this poultry rub, which
is smoked paprika, a little bit of chili powder. Yeah take a
whiff of that.
Ereka: Oh, that smells good, yeah I like that. Tim: So look at this a little
bit of cumin in there, and this is also going
give it some good color. And then a little bit
of salt for me as well.
got it. I’m going to flip them, absolutely. Using my hands if you don’t mind.
Tim: Season that back up.
