Cookbook Questions- Please answer for me.

I have two cookbook questions for you. Wanna be a dear and answer for me in the comments?

1. when you are making a recipe involving chicken breasts, do you prefer to have the weight of the requested chicken breast listed or just have it say "2 boneless skinless chicken breasts"?

2. When making a recipe involving seasoning meat with salt and pepper, do you need the measurement of the salt and pepper or are you fine to have it say "season pork chops with salt and pepper"?

22 comments:

  1. 1. "2 boneless skinless chicken breasts"
    2. "season meat with salt and pepper" - some people prefer more or less of this type of seasoning and can adjust accordingly.

  3. 1. "2 boneless skinless chicken breasts"
    2. "season pork chops with salt and pepper"

    Exact weight and measurements drive me nuts.

  4. 1.) 2 bonrless skinless chicken breats
    2.) "season pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste"...I like to add the "to taste"

  6. I actually like it when an approximate weight for any kind of meat is given. Chicken breasts at the supermarkets where I shop seem to vary greatly in size.

    As for the salt and pepper, unless you're doing more than just seasoning, then saying "season with salt and pepper, to taste" works fine.

  7. I think number of breasts is fine, but my real preference is when it says a weight and a number (example: 1 lb chicken breasts (approximately 3 medium-sized chicken breasts).

    Season with salt and pepper works fine for me, also.

  8. If I have to pick, I would rather it say the number of breasts, although I like the idea for both.

    And "season with salt and pepper, to taste."

  13. I think it would be nice since I only buy tenderloins since they're easier to cut. I'm always having to guess how many tenderloins=one breast.

    As for salt and pepper, there are people who measure them? I just throw some on.

  14. For the chicken, I would say "2 boneless chicken breasts, approx 1 lb total."

    For the salt and pepper, if you aren't adding it to a group of seasonings, just say "season with salt and pepper."

  15. 1. Depends on the recipe - will a larger or smaller than average breast need more or less of other ingredients? That age old question...does size matter?

    2. Season with salt & pepper should be fine. Most people season to taste with S&P and would ignore a precise measurement, I think.

  16. I would prefer to know the weight of the chicken, but a general season with salt and pepper is just fine

  17. 1 - 2 boneless chicken breasts (approx weight)
    2 - "season with s&p"

    Yayyy!! Thanks for asking!

  18. I like the number of chicken breasts to be in the recipe. And I don't pay attention to how much pepper or salt, I usually just sprinkle until I feel like it's ready :)
