Sometimes Simple Is Better

I like to consider myself pretty good around the kitchen and cooking in general.  In my years of cooking, I sometimes think I know the best way to cook most things, and it usually involves several steps that are time consuming and quite messy.  The more I cook, the more I realize that just as important as preparation and seasoning, is cooking your dish to the correct temperature/level of doneness.  For example, you can season you steak all you want, but if you cook that steak past a certain level, it will not taste near as good as a lightly seasoned, perfectly cooked medium rare steak.  Case in point tonight, my wife @SarahBuckner cooked BBQ Chicken in the oven.  She put some chicken breasts in a baking dish, and cooked half way thru, then pulled out and drenched in Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce, and finished them off.  She baked these for a total of 50 minutes on 350 and they were cooked perfectly!  She served this perfectly cooked chicken, with a garden salad and dinner was served.  Kudos to you @SarahBuckner for a great dinner tonight.  As Sarah has shown me, Sometimes Simple Is Better!
