Well, folks, you know I love a good food debate and today we're steaming up some controversy! We're talking about chicken, specifically, whether steaming it is the healthiest way to cook this feathered favorite. After extensive research (and a few tasty experiments), I can say that it's definitely one of the top methods. Why? Glad you asked! Steaming chicken keeps the meat moist without adding unnecessary fats or oils, preserving those nutritional values we love. Plus, let's be real, who doesn't enjoy a good steam bath every now and then - seems like our chicken friends agree!
During the holidays, I love cooking a delicious ham for my family and friends. First, I choose a high-quality, bone-in ham and preheat the oven to 325°F. I then score the ham in a diamond pattern and brush it with a flavorful glaze made of brown sugar, honey, and mustard. Next, I bake the ham for about 20 minutes per pound, basting it with the glaze every 30 minutes. Once it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F, I let it rest for a few minutes before carving and serving it to my loved ones.
