Pecan smoked chicken and 4 cheese and mac casserole, with home-made onion rings

Comfort food tonight. My Beautiful Wife loved it along with the pairing of a 2014 Carignan. Very nice, elegant and soft. Perfect compliment to a smoked, spiced casserole. The onion rings were magnificent as well.

    Robin, super easy recipe, and super easy to cook, maybe 15 - 20 minutes to prep, 1 hour at 400F.

    Thanks for the kind words, 7F up here, and I am tired of winter already. Worth it though. You are not a woos, you are just way smarter than I.

    You will like it, but go super easy on the smoke. Unless you have something that performs like Rockwood, you could get some funky flavor. You do not need a lot of pecan.
    I used just one fist sized chunk of pecan, it was great.

    Looks great Ron, do you have a four cheese recipe and technique you can share?  I’ve seen the three cheese method on YouTube, but this is at least one louder.

    @Legume
    When I tell you how easy this is you will LYMFAO. It is a two cheese blend, already made at Costco, which I bought, dumped into a bowl, and bought their broasted chicken, chopped it up, threw it into the same bowl, mixed very well. Then in the pan you see in the picture posted, I do a layer about an inch deep pressed down, add boursin, spread it over the top, add shredded mild cheddar, black coarse ground pepper, minced garlic, and onion paste.
    Repeat with second layer, cover pan bake indirect at 400 for an hour or until the cheese has sufficiently melted throughout, using one fist sized chunk of pecan.
    I serve it with a 75% Sriracha and 25% honey drizzle.
    So easy and so freaking good. My Beautiful Wife took some to work today for herself and her friends, they loved it.

    Looking great from here Ron! Those O rings 
    @CigarCityEgger
     The rings were labor intensive but, relatively simple. Mixed 1 cup GP flour, 1tsp baking powder, and 1tsp seasoned salt, whisked thoroughly, threw yellow oninion rings sliced 1/4 inch thick, in a bowl and tossed them in about 2 TBS flour mixture first and set aside.
    Added 1 cup of milk and one well beaten egg to the flour mixture. Whisked until smooth. Placed the onions in the mix, then dredged in Panco and deep fried at 350F for about 4-5 minutes. One onion fed 4. Worth it.

    What kind of onion ring batter doesn't have beer? Oops....forgot you were from Kentucky.....no bourbon either?

    I would be happy to have that plate in front of me. I can almost smell the casserole and taste the crispness of the onion rings.

    Sodium bicarbonate with a touch of salt performs mighty well. I would have rather used buttermilk, if I had it.

    The Sriracha really brings out the flavor, recommend it highly.
