How do I properly season and make skinless chicken breast taste good? i want something healthy to eat because I'm going to start working out soon so I'm just just going to eat chicken breast for the protein and to stay lean, the only problem is I don't know SHIT about cooking and anytime I try marinating a frozen chicken breast in chicken broth and slap it in the oven for 40 minutes it still comes out really bland tasting, can anyone help me out here?

The best thing you can do for chicken breast is salt it a MINIMUM of one hour before cooking, overnight would be better. Use Kosher salt, you want big flakes rather than tiny granules. If you use table salt you're likely going to over-season it.

When I buy chicken (or pretty much any un-ground meat) the first thing I do when I get home from the store is salt it and put it in a tupperware/ziploc baggy and put it in the fridge.

How are some people able to eat "unhealthy" things, while others could not handle eating those same things, even if these people are very healthy not putting bad stuff in their stomach (like meats, oil, acidic food...).

Is it the strength of the immune system that is responsible for this?

What is responsible for how much "unhealthy" things one can eat and get away with it more than others?

Story time: my 3 closest friends and I were all/are all spicy fiends, and have been since the early 2000's. As we started getting older, some of us found that we couldn't eat spicy food anymore without getting severe heartburn, as well as the classic fiarrhea.

Fast forward a few years, and it turns out pretending to go vegan worked for all of us so we can eat spicy food again. When I say pretend, I mean trying to go vegan and failing, but ultimately switching to a primarily plant-based diet.

I can't imagine a premade ramen is all that hot. I'll have to try it and report back.

But I cant get enough of that gently crispy bottom...

They're up charging on Amazon for products like Salt, Hot Sauce, Sugar, etc.

They're putting FAKE products on the shelves at my local grocery stores in Dallas. Something BIG is going on. That's a $3 bag of sugar at Walmart. Recently, Walmart started putting knockoff FAKE version of it on the shelves and it was taken off the shelves completely shortly after.

That makes no sense. The difference between those of yours is that sugar beets are much more expensive to make sugar out of. Which goes completely against the whole point of making fake sugar.

I think they could also use something like matotriose or maltotetrose in fake sugar. Which would make it incredibly blatant, due to being significantly lighter, but I guess that's exactly what they'd need to make it more efficient.

Hey guys,

I need advice.

I am unsure if I want to be a chef. I've worked in a restaurant environment since I was 16 (I'm 19 now) so I know how intense it can get at times. That's what bothers me though, I'm pretty sure I'm going to an hero from the stress and work hours, but then again I'm very passionate about food and cooking. I'd love the idea of making my own food and managing a kitchen.

I'm not sure if I want to commit to something like this though, is it really all that bad? Any chefs/culinary arts students have words of encouragement/discouragement.

Let say the same casserole goes in the oven, one for 175c 30 minutes, the other 75c for 3-4 hours or however long for it to get the same as the 175c one. The purpose is to preserve the nutrients in the food. Can baking something at 75c become as good as the 175c one if its kept in long enough, or is it simply too low temp.. I wanna find a sweet spot to bake food and at the same time not destroying nutrients like 175c would.

>Vegetables are "alkaline"
Most of them are actually at least slightly acidic, as are most fruits. your average carrot for example has a pH of about 4-5.
The only reason that veggies are considered "alkaline" in that meme diet is because saying that vegetables are unhealthy will immediately discredit it.

In a casserole or a similar dish, most nutrients will survive. Take a casserole containing chicken for example:
With chicken (and pork), you want the dish to be at least 75c all the way through, to avoid risk of infection. This is also a rule in the industry...
The 175c for 30 minutes will usually heat the very outer layer to about 170-175c, but in the middle, your dish will be 75-80c - enough for the meat to be tender, yet safe to eat.
the 175c path will also allow some of the sugars in the outer layers of the food to caramellize and add flavour to the dish

As another example, take the dish in OPs pic related... it's a good example of a dish that needs the high temperature to work. From what I can see, it contains some light meat (chicken or pork), pasta, cheese and corn. The 175c and 30 mins will make sure to cook the meat properly, while giving the cheese that nice brown color and taste and making the corn nice and soft while still having some bite.

Now try the same dish at 75c for 3-4 hours:
  1. There's no guarantee that the meat will be properly cooked all the way to the center. Yes the surface temp will be 75c, but the temperature in the center is still going to be lower, as the dish itself, the sauce and the cheese will work as insulation.
  2. It's likely the top of the dish is going to be dry af and basically inedible. "cooking" at low temperatures like this for a long time dries out the food. Jerky for example is made at 50-75c for 6-8 hours.
  3. pasta and corn in the middle and the bottom of the pan is going to become mush, as the sauce will behave as a solvent due to its water content.

As for other cooking methods...
Boiling won't happen at much more than 100c unless you live on friggin' Venus. Most vitamins and other nutrients can withstand this temperature fine and will also survive being on the stove for an hour or two.
The purpose of (stir)frying is to induce the Maillard reaction and to caramellize the sugars contained in the food - it adds taste to the dish. While the surface of the pan can be in excess of 200c, the temperature in the center of a steak or a piece of stir fried vegetable is going to be much lower... you never fry something for more than a few seconds or minutes.
Many Asian stir-frys for example add most vegetables at the very end - they get a quick heating for that caramellization and to impart a bit of flavour - but remain nice and crunchy to give the dish some texture. Veggies rarely remain in the pan for more than a minute or two.

The aim of a majority of cooking methods does break down *some* nutrients, but makes it easier for the body to absorb the rest as it also helps break down some proteins and other long-chained molecules into components that the body can use. Keep in mind, we've been cooking long before we were called Homo Sapiens - the very art of cooking is thought to be a big reason behind our large brains. If done right, cooking can unlock more nutrients and other building blocks than a given food contains naturally. For the more heat-sensitive components, eat some fruit instead.

Biggest difference is whole vs. ground. If you're getting whole spices, then you can't really go wrong IMO.

For ground spices, yeah the brand makes a big diff. But I don't buy them often enough to have too many opinions. I know those red tins of hungarian paprika are fuckin bomb. For shit like garlic and onion powder, I just check the ingredients , and I've never been steered wrong.

It's not the "best quality", but just since we're talking spice brands, I really like badia. They're cheap, no fuss, and almost as widespread as mccormick.

Is there anything that could be considered like the human equivalent to a rawhide?

Currently unemployed and waiting for thc to leave my system and i keep finding myself wanting to munch on something just cuz I'm bored. But I don't eat because that would be wasteful and I dont wanna get too fat. But the craving is ever present. I feel like if I had something to just absently gnaw on I'd be ok.
