Mike

I am loving the Tysons 5oz frozen breasts. They are perfect for vending and catering.

I have a question. I am in the habit of probing with my Thermopen in addition to cooking by feel.

I have noticed after cooking a couple of hundred of these breasts that they are fully done in the 145* range. This startled and frankly scared me at first, but I am now confident that they are fully cooked.

Is this something you have noticed? I cooked some to 160* and they were so dry I threw them out.

Thanks again for letting us know about this product. Do you know if there is a larger package available than 10lbs?

Thanks--Jeff

Jeff,

Without stirring the pot, Have you callibrated your thermometer lately. I too tend to prefer my chicken on the underside of 160, But 145 seems a little too low.

And I missed the post on these, Where?? Sams, Costco, BJ's??

Will have to try

Glad you enjoy the product Jeff! Cool

I cook them often, both for vending and catering.

I hate to say it, but like most raunt cooks it's by feel.

I often will cook a batch, choose the thickest one, and when it "feels right" cut into the thickest part shortly before (or right at) serving.

If it's not completely done, a few extra minutes is all it takes.

For vending, they also hold well in a disposable pan with a little broth (after being cooked throughly, of course).

You are probably cooking them properly, then getting a false read- they are thin and do not retain a bunch of heat after taking off the grill.

I find it hard to believe that a thermopen is that far off.....................

The 10 pound bags work for me, about 30 pieces per bag.

I marinate them shortly before cooking (too long and the marinade is too strong) right in the bag they come in, and then toss the bag.

Couldn't be easier.
