    Idea - do a basics episode about cooking without an oven. I live in a small apartment and I often struggle to find a way to cook stuff that's normally done in the oven. Thank you! People please upvote this if you'd like that too!

    Lunch lmao you put a bag in some water and press a button. Dont act like its hard to use. Just a bit pricey

    If anyone is wondering, it took Babish's chicken breasts almost exactly 36 minutes in the 400F oven to come up to the proper temp (source: his live-stream version of this recipe). You should still go by the temperature reading and not time, but I say this because in my own mind, I figured it would take about 10-15 minutes in the oven to be ready. Last night trying this recipe for the first time, I was practically convinced my thermometer was broken when I had to keep the chicken in the oven for 40 minu...

    Without the bone it would take 10-15 minutes. The quicker cooking can result in quicker overcooking, so the bone expands the window a little bit.

    Kyle great comment dude! Thanks!

    Do protein block from snowpiercer

  • An Ngo  (Jan 5, 2019))

    +Ryaken lol actually there are Chinese dishes made out of that stuff, snacks of course. But for the protein block, we can substitute that with crickets.

    Jesus christ 😂😂😂😂😂

  • Brynley Louise  (Dec 7, 2017))

    I really love how this one was plated, I've never seen chicken served like that.

  • Samantha Proffit  (May 22, 2018))

    Probing a steak allows for an easier and more consistent cook. Its not going to affect the moisture level.

    You beautiful man, thank you for putting the shopping list in the description!!!

  • christina love  (Dec 9, 2017))

    No way that I’m not making this

  • MarfMagic  (Oct 6, 2018))

    Made the breasts for a date night and she LOVED it! The only bad part was the onions bc bad breath, but nothing a mint can't fix. Thanks for this one Babish!
