I received Ready. Chef. Go! Cooking Bags for free to facilitate my review. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
I have to admit I was a little skeptical when I started using the Ready. Chef. Go!™ Cooking bags! Seemed to good to be true. They asked me to pick one of the recipes that they provide, I chose one that I had never made, or heard of before, Pescado Veracruzano. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? It was so simple to make and clean up was a breeze!
4 chicken breasts boneless
4 garlic cloves minced
1 cup manzanilla olives or green olives pitted and sliced in half
salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 sliced pickled jalapenos
1 small onion chopped
1 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes with juice
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Coat both sides of the chicken with the salt, pepper and oregano.
Put 2 breasts into each cooking bag. I placed the bags on a baking tray.
Combine the rest of the ingredients.
Place the mixture on top of the chicken inside the cooking bags. Seal.
Bake both bags in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Or in the microwave for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes each.
Here are a few facts about Ready. Chef. Go!™ bags. They were inspired by an old French cooking tradition of “en papillote”, a method of steam cooking food in a sheet of folded and sealed parchment paper. They take the guess-work out of cooking and are designed to be used in a Microwave or Oven. In the microwave, you can cook an entire meal in as fast as 3 minutes.
Locks in flavors and juices. Can be refrigerated or frozen for later use. Eliminates mess and clean up. Ready. Chef. Go!™ help contain cooking odors and are made from parchment paper and heat-resistant, BPA-free polyester film.
On the next recipe which is my own, I decided to make salmon and cook it in the microwave.
2 pieces of salmon
2 cloves of garlic cut in half
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 slices of fresh lemon
1 sprig of fresh parsley
In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, and lemon juice.
Place the salmon pieces in the Ready. Chef. Go! cooking bag.
Pour the sauce over the salmon, top with garlic, lemon slices, and parsley. Seal bag.
Place the bag in the microwave and cook 3 -4 minutes depending on the power of the microwave.
That’s all there is to it. The salmon was tender, juicy and delicious. Super simple.
