πŸ”˜ Eggs beautifully poached in
ExcelSteel 2 Egg Poaching Pot
Bring water to simmer (not rolling boil)
Spray egg cups with cooking spray or oil
Crack 1 egg per cup – duck eggs / jumbos just fit
Cook over MED heat for 4min
Remove immediately (pan, cups and lid will be hot πŸ”₯)

Or try these other methods:

πŸ₯š PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 5 min (or duck eggs for 6 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

If you prefer hard boiled (but not chalky super done yolks), increase time to 9min for chicken eggs and 11min for duck eggs.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 3-5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.

πŸ” TANDOORI CHICKEN & BROCCOLI
β–ͺ️ Chicken Breast
β–ͺ️ Tandoori Spice
β–ͺ️ Greek Yogurt
β–ͺ️ Lemon Juice
β–ͺ️ Sesame Oil

β–ͺ️ Greek Yogurt
β–ͺ️ Lemon Juice
β–ͺ️ Mini Cucumber
β–ͺ️ Dried Dill

β–ͺ️ Black Rice
β–ͺ️ Broccoli

I cooked the chicken on the stove when I should have trusted my instincts and cooked it in the air fryer. I wasn’t thinking about the fact that the yogurt would break while the chicken was cooking and so I ended up with a broken sauce. Still edible but not as nice…
