[CnD] Boston Market Chicken

Hello, Everyone,

Charles and John make an interesting point.
While I would not necessarily modify the wording in a recipe, I would suggest adding a sentence to explain how the blind individual who shares the recipe turns the term which relies on sight into a tactile or auditory instruction.
I have no idea when the juices run clear for baking chicken, but I depend on time, the use of a talking thermometer, and/or how the chicken feels to the touch.
I don't know when a pork chop is brown, but I feel the meat after flipping it and know that the texture of the meat has changed. I also note the change in sound when the pork chop is brown on the bottom.
Probably most of you know these things, but a blind person who is new to cooking or wants to try a new technique would benefit from the added information.
And I have no idea when scallops would be opaque, and I love scallops. I would probably look for a different recipe for scallops which might give me the time for cooking them.

Just my thoughts.

Lori C.

Hi,

I have a problem with people saying things need to be edited for a blind so called standered. All ovens and stoves cook differently and each person has a different way of doing things if the list is going to turn into us being told that we need to take sited terms out of our recipes then I will just leave and find another list. I am highly offended buy these comments.

I don't think that is fair to say all the time Charles

I totally agree.  This is why I feel that all recipes sent to this list should be gone over by the sender and modified for use by a blind person. 
To me, even phrases like, "Bake until golden brown" should be deleted and replaced with an approximate time and temperature.  Katie and I had a huge problem with scallops one time.  We bought a huge bag of them at Sam's Club and I was anxious for her to try them.  All recipes we found said stuff like "Bake them until they become opaque.  This did us absolutely no good.




If you think you're finished, you! really! are! finished!!

Hello Sugar:
How do we know if juices run clear, being totally blind. I know you did well, and this is not adapted for us; but little things like this do need modifying if at all possible.
Blessings,

John and Carol McConnell

Boston Market Chicken

       1/4 cup  canola oil
       1 Tbl.  honey
       1 Tbl.  lime juice
       1/4 tsp.  paprika
       4 chicken breast halves, washed and patted dry
  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine canola oil, honey, lime juice, and paprika. Place chicken, skin side up, in a 7X11 inch baking dish. Apply mixture to chicken pieces in a single layer. Bake in oven for
35−40 minutes, basting every 8−10 minutes, until well browned and juices run clear when you cut into the thickest part of the chicken. Remove from oven. Cover with foil for 15 minutes.
  This softens the chicken and keeps it hot until served. Serves four.
