Chef Robert Irvine’s Healthy Chicken Recipes 3 Ways

Chef Robert Irvine’s Healthy Chicken Recipes 3 Ways

Hey, Chef Robert Irvine here with and today I’m going to show you three simple recipes with chicken: a marinated herb and mustard chicken, a curry chicken, and a garlic and fresh herb over here. We’re going to start with the first one, which is our mustard. Now, mustard is a great emulsifier or a great flavor. We’ve got a protein from the chicken, but also every cup of mustard that you use is 11 grams of protein added. Really simple. We’re going to take some fresh dill, chop it up nice and rough. Over here we’ve got some stone-ground mustard, but you can use any mustard that you want. Into the bowl. Take the dill … Put that in there. Now, I’m a big believer in Citrus, so I want to get some lemon over here. Citrus helps digestion. It also helps with flavor. Remember, when you’re using mustard, you’ve got to add lots of flavor to overcome the power in the mustard. Simple as this, look. Mix it up. I’m going to add a little touch of water. Because after all, we’re marinating chicken now. And you can make this in the morning, which is really good. Takes about 5 seconds. Put it in a refrigerator with the chicken in the marinade and when you come home … Simple. 5 minutes on the grill or in the oven, bingo! Now look, it’s finished. No salt, no pepper. We don’t need that. But brush the chicken nice and liberally. Boom. There it is: marinated mustard and dill chicken. And this is what it looks like when it’s actually cooked. Simple right? We look for lots of different flavors. I’m going to show you how to make a curried rub–a dry rub–that goes on chicken that will help you, again, enhance that flavor, give us a different take on chicken. And it starts with curry powder, already made. Cumin. I’m going to take–a spoon over here–a little garlic, and mix together. Now, the juice from the garlic is going to actually wet this dry powdered mix. You can see it starting to crumb up there. And if you could smell this right now, it’s very, very intense. Now, we’re looking for–the heat in curry powder is what we call a thermogenic. So it helps you burn fat while you eat. Here we are. All we’re going to do, take our chicken breasts, rub it in, dip it in, and when it comes out, give it a little rub. We can put this onto a plate, plastic wrap it, leave it in the refrigerator till you come home from work…. Grill it. Simple. This is what it looks like when it’s grilled. Very simple. Very easy. The last one is one of my favorites. I love fresh herbs. Now, when we use fresh herbs, we don’t need to use salts or peppers or anything like that. We take fresh herbs. In this case we’ve got oregano, Thyme, and rosemary. Into a bowl, already chopped, roughly chopped. Now here’s a little trick. If I take a knife, and look at the stems of the rosemary. If you break the stems of the rosemary with the back of the knife, it actually releases the natural oils in the actual herb. Lots more flavor and it’s really intense. Add a little bit of garlic to this–chopped garlic–some lemon juice, and some oil. Again, they’re simple marinades that help you give flavor to what would normally be a very dull meat or a dull protein, which in this case is chicken. But we could do this with steak, we could do it with anything else that you like. Into the refrigerator, leave it till you come home, grill it. Again, this is what it looks like when it comes either off your grill or from an oven. Simple tricks: Using citrus speeds up metabolism. The thermogenic from the curry gives us that great, great, intense fat-burning property, and the mustard adds to the protein of the chicken. Well, that’s three simple ways to use chicken.

    Dude looks like Hannibal Lecter on a buff body

  • Mubashir Mahi

    And each meal will take more effort than a single gripped 1000 pounds deadlift and will cost more than the treatment that you'll recieve after fucking up your back while deadlifting 1000 pounds with one hand. Cheers mate! I'll stick to boiling my chicken.

  • Holiday Armadillo

    Looks ripped until you get to his belly which is sticking out a strange amount and making him low key seem fat

  • GRW


  • Caleb Soukhamneut

    If you think it’s too dry, try using boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. Much juicier and only 4 grams of fat per 4 ounces of chicken thighs. Much tastier this way but if you need less fat to fit your diet then continue using breasts

  • sunnyboy8644

    @@ very nice…. will definitely try it next time ~

  • Dana May

    So ya he has a nice body, but his hands are amazing

  • Jayson Jao

    Hi. Can i just sear it in olive oil instead of grilling or oven baking it?

  • Abel Abebe

    His accent is ambiguous

  • Aaron 2010

    Feel like there are shots fired when he says you dont need salt or pepper

  • Freedom Ring

    My favorite thing about this video are the comments from people trying to tell a professional chef he is doing it wrong .. lol

  • Remígio Chilaule

    There is no such thing as healthy chicken. Do your research

  • nizakat iqbal

    Horrible dress sense. Bloated belly. Why do bodybuilders feel the need to wear the tightest gear they can find.

  • 7rue Op1n1on

    Mix the mustard with the diugh

  • Your Mum

  • Lee Taylor

    0:39 didn't need to do that as it was already finely cut, but wanted to anyway to show off his skills on YouTube

  • Kat F

    Met Robert at a food expo in Monroeville Pa, he acted like he was just some regular guy, walk-in around getting ready for his food he served to a ton of people and had a lot going on. Yet when I got out of my seat and yelled Yo Robert, chasing him down for a pic, he was AWESOME! Totally approachable, was goofin with me and laughing, had 4 pics taken by my friend Missy, and he hugged me a couple times showing the love and appreciation…by the way his CRUNCH BARS ARE THE BOMB!!!! GO BUY SOME, I GUARANTEE YOU WILL LOVE THEM! BETTER THAN CANDY, THESE ARE PROTEIN BARS! GREAT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAD GASTRIC BYPASS AND NEED PROTEIN.
