CI Apple-Berry Pie, Wine sauce Brined Chicken, Truffled Seasoned Potatoes on the #KamadoJoe

Recommended Posts

On the cook today (while SWMBO is working away), is Brined Seasoned Chicken thighs in white wine sauce. Kamado Joe poultry seasoning was used, along with an alcohol free white wine as the simmering base. Additionally, roasted fingerling red potatoes drizzled with black truffle infused oil, liberally sprinkled with Kamado Joe Vegetable seasoning. Lastly a Apple-Blackberry pie, prepared with an orange tequila and Jack Daniels honey sauce is prepared. The mixture of Apple, Orange, Honey, Blackberry and various spices will give the pie a complex taste which should stand up to any main course. The apples and berries were simmered separately and then combined in the pie shell. The sauce was thickened with corn starch prior to pouring over the fruit in the shell. All three dishes are currently on the Kamado Joe Big Joe using the extended rack and ceramic stones to even out the heat.

The main dishes plated. The chicken turned out nicely juicy, the brining gave it a nice salty savory flavor. The potatoes were done at the same time as the chicken, and right at the perfect level of tenderness.

The pie is currently setting for 15 minutes before slicing, which is fine, it is time to eat chicken!

What an all round great cook.

I especially liked the AB on the pie. Mrs skreef did a picture of an apple on an apple pie similar to that. Just makes for a nice whole pie presentation and there is always a little dough left over to do it.

Great job all around.

      So my work had a Chili Cookoff contest and I decided to join in on the “fun”. I put fun in parenthesis because I had to make the chili on Tuesday after work and didn’t get done until it was 9:00. I then had to wait until it cooled off enough to put it in the fridge. So I’m in bed at 10:15 and the alarm is set for 4:30. This so I can shower and get everything ready and make the drive up to the L.A. area on Wednesday. I made a White Chicken Chili called Chili Blanco. I used a recipe from All Things BBQ. (Here's a link to his video:  https://www.atbbq.com/thesauce/chili-blanco/)
       
      I tweaked the recipe a little. Here are the ingredients I used with my tweaks in red.
      ·         2 lb chicken, boneless breasts or thighs (I used 4 boneless breasts)
      ·         Carne Asada Seasoning (I used Fajita seasoning)
      ·         2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
      ·         1 large yellow onion, diced
      ·         3 Anaheim chiles, seeded, diced (I used 2 Anaheim and 1 Poblano)
      ·         1 jalapeno, seeded, diced
      ·         1 tbsp All Purpose Rub
      ·         1 tbsp ground cumin
      ·         1 tsp Mexican oregano
      ·         4 cloves garlic, minced
      ·         3 tbsp unsalted butter
      ·         1/4 cup flour
      ·         2 (15 oz) cans of great northern beans, drained, rinsed
      ·         1 quart unsalted chicken stock
      ·         1 cup heavy cream (I used Caciqui Crema Salvadorena)
      ·         8 oz cream cheese, cubed
      ·         1 bunch cilantro, minced
      ·         4 oz (1 cup) pepper jack cheese, grated
       
      Didn’t have time for a fully documented cook photo spread but here is what I did get. I had taken some chicken I had in the freezer and thawed it out. Assembled most of my spices (some I didn’t use) and the chicken.

      Sliced al the breast in half to increase the surface area

      and then sprinkled on the fajita seasoning.

      I grilled the chicken on my preheated Grill Grates I got from BPS.

      Brought then inside to cool

      while I started prepping the veggies and other ingredients.

      Onion and Poblano diced

      and now the Anaheim’s added.  

      I took all this out and placed it in my 9 Qt. Dutch oven to sauté. This is where I was pushing for time and quit taken all the pictures that slow down the cooking process. I did get one of the final results.

      I really liked the flavor and heat profile of it. It had some heat, but the heat was flavorful and not just hot. My wife also liked it but indicated it was just a little to hot. (She still ate it 2 days in a row) I didn’t win the cookoff but came in 3rd. This is a little different that what everyone was used to. The traditional chili’s won but I did get a lot of complements on it.
       
      Thanks for looking

      For one spatchcocked chicken that serves two people.  The recipe is for enough sauce to marinate and baste two servings, so multiply it by the number of servings (½ chicken per person) you are preparing.
       
      INGREDIENTS
      1 fryer chicken per person two people
       
      Marinade
      ½ cup soy sauce 
      ½ cup ketchup 
      ¼ cup chicken broth 
      ¼ cup pineapple juice (optional) 
      4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
      2 Tbsp fresh ginger minced and smashed to form paste that emulsifies 
      2 Tbsp garlic minced and smashed to form paste that emulsifies 
      2 tsp dry Chinese-style mustard 
      4 tsp lime juice
       
      DIRECTIONS
      Huli-Huli is a Hawaiian phrase that roughly translates to “turn-turn.”  This recipe is great for just about any grill and will work very well for those who like rotisserie cooking.  Some cooks insist that every time they grill chicken, especially whole or half chickens, they brine it for at least 24 hours.  If you desire to do this – I say have at it.  Sometimes I don’t know what I’m going to grill for dinner at night until I see what’s available in the grocery store meat counter at 5 o’clock, so to brine or marinate overnight is not always an option.  This is a recipe that you can cook without a long marinate. You can make it up in about 15 minutes and serve in under an hour or marinate overnight and cook the next day.
       
      Preparation
      1.     Mix all marinade ingredients in a non-reactive container and divide in half.
      2.     Place chicken in plastic bag and add marinade, seal and place in refrigerator for 3 hours or up to overnight.
      3.     Remove from marinade and pat dry, discard used marinade.
       
      Cook
      4.     Preheat grill to Medium High (350F – 450°F) and make sure the grates are CLEAN. 
      5.     Warm the reserved sauce on a side burner or warming rack.
      6.     Place the chicken, skin-side up, on grates to allow the bones to heat up the core for a few minutes then turn it and place it on a new section of the grates to sear the skin. 
      7.     After the chicken skin has seared, turn the bird over and baste it with sauce, allowing it to glaze a bit before turning again.
      8.     Turn it about every 5 minutes, basting it with sauce each time. 
      9.     Remove the chicken from the grill upon reaching the internal temperature of 160°F (instant read thermometer placed in the center of the breast or thickest portion of the meat on thigh – away from bone) and place it on a clean warm plate.
      10.  Baste it once more and cover it with aluminum foil and let it stand for at least 10 minutes – allowing for the internal temp of the chicken to rise approximately 10 degrees and continue cooking to your desired internal temperature.
       
      NOTE: Use a meat thermometer while cooking to check for doneness – 180°F for whole chicken, 170°F for bone-in parts and 160°F for boneless parts.
       
      ROTISSERIE:  This recipe can be used in preparing a whole chicken on the rotisserie.  Use the guidelines for heat settings that are appropriate to your grill, basting about every 5 minutes with sauce.

      When I was first looking into getting a Kamado, the guy at BBQ's Galore shop was listing off all the things that a Kamado could do, and the final thing he mentioned was Tandoor. SOLD! Ever since then, I've been wanting to make this dish, and the July challenge was the perfect opportunity.
       
      Tandoori Chicken
       
      The smell of this marinade was incredible.  I will definitely be making this again on a  regular basis. Absolutely delicious!  I don't know what else I'm going to use that massive bag of chilli powder for!! 
       


      1 kg skinless, boneless chicken thighs
      1/2 cup plain yoghurt
      juice of one lime
      1 tablespoon garam Masala
      1/2 tablespoon ginger powder
      1/2 tablespoon kashmiri chilli powder
      1/2 tablespoon methi (fenugreek leaves)
      1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      4 cloves garlic, minced
      grated fresh ginger, approx 1/2 Tablespoon once grated
      1/2 Tablespoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon red food colouring (optional) - you will notice in the photo of the ingredients, that I bought a packet of this but decided against using it.  When I looked up what food colour 124 was and found out that it's made from synthetic coal tar ,  I chose to leave it out.  Therein is the beauty of making things from scratch - you have the power to choose what goes in and what doesn't. 
       
      Basically, i mixed together all the marinade ingredients, and cut some deep slashes in the thighs so that the marinade could penetrate the chicken, mixed together and refrigerated for a few hours.
       

       
      by the time the marinading was done, it was pretty dark outside.
       

       
      I fired her up and the smell emanating from this chicken is something everyone should experience coming from their Kamado at some point in their lives.
       

       
      The perfect accompaniment for the chicken is  a cucumber and herb yoghurt sauce.
       
      Raita
       

       
      1 cup plain yoghurt
      1 lebanese cucumber peeled, de-seeded and finely chopped
      1 clove of garlic minced
      juice of half a lime
      a big bunch of mint and coriander finely chopped
      small grating of fresh ginger for a bit of warmth
      salt to taste
       
      this is a pic of the amount of herbs that went in to this tasty sauce.
       

       
      This was the first time ever that my husband and I ate a whole kg of chicken in one sitting!  LOL ... he said "i just can.not stop eating this". ha haaa
       
      The next time I make this, I will take it to the next level by making my own garam masala spice blend. I can't wait because I'm sure it will be mind-blowing.
       
      Garam Masala Spice Blend recipe by Vijaya Selvaraju
       
      2 tablespoons cumin seeds
      2 tablespoons coriander seeds
      2 teaspoons black pepper corns
      1 star anise
      1/4 of a whole nutmeg
      10 green cardamon pods
      1 stick cinnamon
       
      don't toast the spices. Just whiz them up in a spice grinder and store in fridge or freezer.
       
      The money shot was supposed to include slices of cucumber but I couldn't control myself and started eating this before setting it up properly. ha haaa!!

      Hello All!!!  Grilling spatchcock chicken with John Henry's Texas Chicken Tickler!!!!

    • By Lydia
      Hello everyone,  here is my effort to challenge myself by deboning a chicken - using the technique of the master, Mister Jacques Pepin!  I could watch that video over and over again and would never bore of it. I can't say that I did it in the two meenoots that he can do it in LOL ... and I must admit that I had a piece of cling-wrap over the screen of my ipad so that I could keep pausing it at each step and rewinding regularly. ha haaa!!
       
      In addition, I couldn't decide on which sauce I wanted to make, so I made two - gravy using the carcass and bones from said chicken along with other ingredients and also a Romesco sauce made from capsicums I roasted in the Kamado too.
       
      Stuffed chicken Galantine
       
      Free-range whole chicken
      Spanish serrano ham
      Spinach - wilted
      Garlic -  a few cloves
      Mushrooms - sauteed (I added these once I saw how piddly amount of stuffing I had once the big bag of spinach wilted down to a very small quantity)
      Young Asiago cheese
      Salt and pepper
      olive oil to rub on skin prior to roasting
       

       
      Basically, I used the Jacques Pepin method to de-bone the chicken and only messed up one foot because me being me, I took the whole de-boning thing too far and removed that bone but it was all good.
       
      This is what it looked like sans-carcass.
       

       
      With the tasty stuffing.

       
      Trussed and ready to cook (not as elegant as Jacques - but not bad for a first timer, if I must say so myself )
       

       
      Romesco Sauce
      4 red capsicums - fire roasted
      6 sun dried tomato halves
      2/3 cup almonds
      big bunch of parsley from the garden
      4 garlic cloves
      6 Tablespoons olive oil
      2 teaspoons pomegranate molasses (or sherry vinegar if you have it - I didn't so also added an extra teaspoon of red wine vinegar)
      2 teaspoons pimenton/smoked paprika
       
      b
       
      Basically, I roasted and cleaned up the capsicums the day before, then cooked off the garlic and nuts in the olive oil until the garlic just started to very lightly colour (to take out the harshness) and then popped all the ingredients, including the oil into the food processor until still slightly chunky. Refrigerated overnight for the flavours to meld.
       

       
      Gravy
       

       
      carcass and bones from my de-boned chicken
      1 kg chicken wings
      4 x strips streaky bacon (I had forgotten to take it out of the fridge prior to taking this photo)
      3 x ribs celery
      2 x carrots
      2 x onions
      2 or 3 rosemary sticks
      a couple of bay leaves
      a couple of star anise
      some bunches of tarragon
      a few whole pepper corns
      1.5 litre chicken stock
      flour and butter to make a roux - I just wing this so can't say the quantities sorry.
       
      I roasted all ingredients listed up to and including rosemary in the oven until well cooked and deep in colour / flavour.
      Transferred to a big pot and then deglazed the oven tray of all the delicious bits stuck to the bottom and then poured that into the pot, along with the bay leaves, tarragon and star anise.
      Simmered on low for a couple of hours and gave everything a good moosh (culinary technical term ) with the wooden spoon every now and then to extract maximum flavour.
      Strained and cooled in the fridge for a while.
      I then scooped off a lot of the chicken fat before adding to the roux to make a very flavoursome and delicious gravy. 
       
      My friend and neighbours took their own money shots on their phones when I was plating. They've never had a deboned chicken before and were very impressed when i was "carving" what appeared to them to be a whole chicken.
