I just found a recipe for chicken roulade that involves meat glue and deep frying. :D

How long should I bake a boneless chicken breast (about 3/4 inch thick) in the oven? I'm seeing everything from 30 min to 1 hour online. The chicken's been marinated in bbq sauceand will be covered in foil. I'm thinking 45 min is about right?

25-30 minutes at 350* should be good enough.

Use an oven thermometer; I will bet you $1 350F on your dial setting is off by 10-15 degrees. And check the doneness of the chicken using an instant-read thermometer.

I definitely need to invest in both an oven thermometer and a meat thermometer. I ended up baking the chicken breasts about 38 min. I checked them at 25 and cutting through one, it didn't seem done in the center (no blood or even pinkness, just the density) so I turned it down to 300 and left them in longer as I was waiting on a potato dish to finish up anyway. They were perfect when I did take them out, very juicy and tender. The recipe was ridiculously easy (although not at the level of what usually gets posted here, of course).

Boneless Ckn Breasts
1/2 bottle BBQ Sauce
1/4 C vinegar
1/4 C brown sugar
1 t red pepper flakes
1 t garlic powder

Prep time was all of 3 minutes.

Helped my friend butcher 4 cows this weekend. That is actually a neat thing to do. I learned so much about the different cuts of meat. He gave me 4 T-bones and about a 5# chuck roast. Had 2 Tbones last night. Chuck roast.. pan in the oven, or crock pot that thing?

Here is a question for everyone...

When you make breakfast sausage links, how do you go about cooking them? Typically, I put the sausage in a frying pan and cover them about 3/4's of the way in water, and cook them until the water is pretty much all gone. After that, I spray the pan with cooking spray and brown the sausages. The sausages end up tasting fine, but they are very greasy because they are cooking in that spray. On top of that, because I use that spray, the pan has buttery / greasy clumps all in it. Im afraid if I dont use the spray, the pan will burn. Any tips?

I toss them in, but brown them first, then a little bit of water to steam them the rest of the way.
