White Meat Seasoning Guide

With 20-minute cuisine in mind, the cut of meat is very important. Thin cuts of pork—chops, ribs, and tenderloin medallions—and of poultry—boneless breasts, legs, wings, thighs, and drumsticks (both components of a chicken leg)—are the pieces most amenable to quick cooking. (Larger are possible within this timeframe if cooking is accelerated with the microwave).

Cook's Glossary

Poultry, for the purposes of this book, refers to chicken and turkey.

To give you a sense of how flexible these meats are, with many of these recipes, you could actually swap between chicken and pork, and even veal, and do just fine. We've focused on grilling, broiling, frying, and sautéing as the 20-minute methods of choice for both speed and flavor.
