As weird as it sounds, meal preparation actually soothes my autism

I make my chicken in a way that keeps it incredibly moist

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 02:29:51  

Medium rare chicken

Deleted User 2017-07-30 02:29:52  

Extra fat and oils from 🐓 get cooked down and smothered on top before portioning

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 02:30:13  


Deleted User 2017-07-30 02:31:59  

It's fully cooked. I cook both sides on medium-high for ~ 3 minutes and then lower heat and put a lid over the skillet

Deleted User 2017-07-30 02:32:33  

For another mmm 10, 15?

Deleted User 2017-07-30 02:33:29  

Covering the 🐓 is what makes it moist

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 02:59:22  

I'll be honest, it's difficult for me to get moist chicken these days unless I've 🅱️rined it

Joseph McCarthy - NJ 2017-07-30 03:00:06  

That's why Ive been doing the pseudo-meatloaf thing with the ground turkey

Erika 2017-07-30 03:01:00  

I don't usually like chicken, but your chicken looks amazing.

#healthyboy snack time

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:25:51  

Easy and relatively healthy. Stove top cooked popcorn

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:26:31  

Veggie oil on the bottom of a saucepan. Just enough to coat the base + a little

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:26:49  

Add 3 kernals of popping corn

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:26:54

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:27:04  

Medium high heat

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:27:28  

Wait till kernals pop

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:28:17  

Do some curls in your kitchen while you wait

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:30:16  

Once they pop it signifies the oil is hot enough

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:30:22

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:30:55  

Add the rest of your kernals. Pictured here is alot. Multiple servings worth

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:30:59

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:32:02  

Put lid on of course lol

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:37:56  

If you keep shaking the saucepan as you cook as well as dump out the popped kernals into a large serving bowl when they push the lid up you will end up with 0 wasted kernals and 0 burned popcorn

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:38:13  

Season with salt in moderation

Erika 2017-07-30 04:47:03  

I just use a hot air popper to avoid using oil. But fresh popped popcorn is one of my favorite snacks.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 05:34:36  

@Erika im not a fan personally of single use appliances.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 05:34:48  

but even so ive always wanted one

Grenadier 2017-07-30 10:29:27  

Is that butter I see in the unpopped kernel picture? Also the only single-use appliance I will advocate for is an Egg Cooker. Huge timesaver and conveniance and it's tiny.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 12:21:15  

Veggie oil. No butter.

Grenadier 2017-07-30 12:21:50  

Oh I see it now. It was the three test kernels that had already popped.

Erika 2017-07-30 15:32:35  

@Deleted User same. I hate single use appliances, but I make so much popcorn that it's worth it. And most thrift stores have a hot air popper in their appliance section, so you can usually get one for like, $5.

Logan 2017-08-02 02:59:00  

You jest. They are the tradest.

ophiuchus 2017-08-02 02:59:23  

They're really good I've discovered

ophiuchus 2017-08-02 02:59:43  

Never had them growing up, but just sautéed in olive oil with salt and pepper they're great

Erika 2017-08-02 03:15:27  

I love brussel sprouts

Erika 2017-08-02 03:15:47  

That looks delicious. What's the protein? Chicken?
