Smoked Chicken Chile Rellanos
« on: January 27, 2009, 11:37:47 am »
I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this...please move or delete if needed.
It starts with a smoked chicken..  ;D

I rubbed a hen with butter and seasoned with kosher salt and cracked black pepper... I wanted to keep the seasonings simple.
Smoked with a bit of hickory...



I combine the cooled chicken meat with about 1/2 cup of minced onion, jalapeno and some shredded queso campesino.



I blister and place the anaheims in a baggie to steam for easy peeling...( can be done on a grill)



The seeded and peeled chiles, stuffed with the smoked chicken, onion, jalapeno and cheese filling....



I dust them with flour and dip in a batter...then fry til golden...



The smoked chicken chile rellanos, cactus salad and anasazi beans with jalapeno bacon...



The Smoked chicken and cheese add a lot to the rellanos....

I forgot to add..
For the batter I whip 4 egg whites, add 4 beaten egg yolks and 4 TBS of flour.

I also serve a sauce on top of the rellanos...
I saute some minced onion and garlic in a bit of oil
add 2 cups of chicken broth
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 tsp of oregano
and salt and pepper to taste

It's a thin sauce, but adds a lot of flavor to the rellanos. :)

Cowgirl, that just looks great!  My wife loves Chile Rellanos and I just bet she is going to want to give this a shot.  We will probably adapt it for the Big Easy rather than frying.  (I don't mind fried stuff but my Dr. prefers I leave it alone)

Even your side ingredients are awesome sounding.
Campesino, cactus, and anasazi.
Very nice as usual.
