Italian Cuisine

Italian cuisine always brings to mind the yummy pasta and pizza. Italy's unique food culture is the heartfelt love of a nonna (grandmother) cooking and teaching the younger generation in every Italian household. The delectable dishes are flavorful and subtle, with a decadent textural delight. They are all laid out on a huge table where the entire family (including cousins and relatives) join together to eat, laugh, chat and have a great time.
 
Let's find out more of the delicious secrets that make Italian cuisine a global favorite.

A Brief History of Italian Food

Italians carry their native origins with pride. Italy comprises 27 regions, where each area features its specific recipes, dialect, and traditional beliefs.
 
Tuscany holds the expertise in baking bread, while Polenta is common in Lombardy. The famous pizza and tomato usage began in the Bay of Naples, where the seafarers brought these new ingredients.

Keto Skillet Smoked Mozzarella Chicken Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) package smoked mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

Keto Skillet Smoked Mozzarella Chicken Recipe Instructions

  1. Cover your work area with waxed paper then place your chicken breast down. Pound each breast with the smooth side of a meat mallet to an even thickness. This even thickness helps the chicken cook more evenly. Sprinkle both sides with oregano, onion powder, and salt.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and cook for about 4 on each side. Add sliced mozzarella on top of each piece of chicken. Cover the skillet and cook until cheese has melted and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 minutes longer. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  3. Remove from the skillet and allow to cool for 1 minute before serving.

How to Properly Store Chicken

How long can cooked chicken be stored in a refrigerator or freezer?

That relies upon several conditions, but chicken, once cooked, should be refrigerated within 2 hours. To maximize the shelf life of cooked chicken for protection and exceptional quality, refrigerate the chicken in shallow bins or wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. The cooked chicken will remain for three to four days in the fridge.

To further increase the shelf life of a cooked chicken, freeze it. Store the cooked chicken in plastic storage bins or heavy ziplock freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.

How long does cooked chicken remain withinside the freezer?

Properly stored, it'll preserve the quality of the chicken for approximately four months; however, it will continue to be edible past that time.
The freezer time given is for the best quality of the meat. Cooked chicken that is continuously frozen will preserve indefinitely.

For the best freezer results, look at getting a vacuum sealer like this one: Get a Vacuum Sealer Here on Amazon

How long does cooked chicken remain after being frozen and thawed? 

Cooked chicken that properly thaws out in the refrigerator will be edible for three to four days. Cooked chicken thawed in the microwave or in bloodless has no other shelf life and should be consumed immediately.

How long does cooked chicken store at room temperature?

Bacteria develop hastily at temperatures between 40°F and 140°F; cooked chicken must be discarded if left out for more than two hours at improper temperatures.

How to know if a cooked chicken has good bad?

The most common manner is to smell and examine the chicken. Most symptoms of bad chicken include:

  • bitter scent
  • slimy texture
