Diabetes Quick Fix: Paul Prudhomme’s Bronzed Chicken Breasts …

Paul Prudhomme, deliberate a father of blackened redfish, gave me this tip, “My recommendation to people during home is bronzing rather that blackening. This avoids a fume and a risk of doing a impassioned skillet while still achieving an glorious result.” The cloak of this indian duck breast is golden and caramelized from a cooking method.

The tip to bronzing is to keep a skillet during a right temperature. The duck should take 6 to 7 mins to cook. If it takes most longer, a skillet is not prohibited enough.

Helpful Hints:

Cajun piquancy mixes can be found in a piquancy territory of a supermarket.

Boneless, skinless duck breast cutlets, about 1/2-inch thick can be found in a beef territory of a supermarket. Regular weak skinless duck breasts can be used instead. Pound these duck breasts prosaic to about 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick with a beef bat or complicated skillet.

An electric frying vessel can be used instead of a skillet. Keep a feverishness during 350 degrees.
