Stuffed Chick

Been eating these at duck camp for a couple years and finally decided to intro the wife. Local cajun meat market called Stuffed (www.stuffedfoodstores.com ) makes these deboned (except for wings) chickens with 13 different stuffing options. This one is my fave - jalapeno cornbread! I'm just a customer...no other connection. 

Firing up the egg:

After a nite in the fridge to dry out the skin, EVOO and some JH Pecam rub, a nice chunk of Pecan at 375: Note the new placesetter (old one had been puzzled back together with JB weld, but finally succumbed to multiple fractures

Ready to pull and rest:

After an 8 minute rest and sliced:

Plated with some sauteed Balsamic/Garlic French Cuts and a Cucumber/Tomato Salad with Cracked Pepper Vinagrette:

Pulled the chicken when the Thermapen hit 160 in the breast meat. These are SO good, the dressing rivals moms....shhh, don't tell her! The bird fed 4 and was less than $15. Pretty good deal.

    HEB and others sell a similar offering, called La Boucherie.  Their 3 pound deboned chicken with cornbread stuffing is $12.95.  Looks like they're in head to head competition.

    Thanks VI - I've seen those but never tried. 
  • Central market has some cool stuffings too. They are really good. Did a jalapeño pecan cornbread stuffing last time and it was money. This is a perfect example of how meat glue is used to create cool stuff.

    mmmm....Meat Glue!!  :D
  • I know. Wish they would call it something else ( like transglutiminase.....oh wait they do). They need a better marketing dept. fun stuff though.
