I have a love hate relationship with chicken. I love to eat it but I hate to cook it. Because of my microbiology degree, raw chicken freaks me out. The less I touch it, the better. That being said, I have started Weight Watchers and have found many delicious recipes on plan that involve chicken. So, as my husband would say, it’s time to “Man-Up!” Fortunately, I received Chicago Cutlery DesignPro knives for review so I am hoping preparing chicken will be much easier.
As I said in my first Chicago Cutlery post, I am a cooking novice. I have no clue how to hold a professional knife let alone actually use it. As I do when I need visual advice, I fled to YouTube and found several great instructional videos on the correct way to use a Chef’s Knife. Take a look at the one below:
Using my new knife skills, I felt confident that I could tackle a chicken recipe I have wanted to try for a long time. It’s a very easy, very delicious Weight Watcher’s friendly chicken salad that I found on Skinny Taste (only 4 Points Plus per serving!). The first step in the recipe is to slice up two boneless chicken breasts and place them in a medium saucepan. Using the skills I learned from YouTube, I let the knife do the work for me and was done slicing up the chicken in no time at all. Because the knife is made with ultra sharp, Japanese steel blades to improve the cutting experience, I finished the job faster than I ever have in the past which means less time touching the raw chicken. Score!
I don’t think my fear of raw chicken has been solved, but with the Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Chef’s Knife, I learned that the right tools for the job make a BIG difference. I know have a whole new world of chicken recipes to explore! Would you like to try a Chicago Cutlery DesignPro Chef’s Knife? Enter to win one below!
