Life is very hectic for us these days and I don't get the chance to cook much these days and much more so to document those cooks when I do. It is the season we're living in for now with taking care of my 93 year old M.I.L. with Alzheimer's. Anyone who's gone though this knows how difficult it is.

 

Anyway, last weekend I decided to remake the Blackened Chicken Torta I made a few years ago. First thing I made was some Pickled Red Onion.

I then made up some Blackened Chicken rub and proceeded to make up the Blackened Chicken and Torta.

I pounded some chicken breasts out to around 1/2” thick.

I placed my CI skillet on the on side burner of my gasser and let it get smoking hot and blackened the chicken.

I then toasted the torta roll and spread on some Frank’s Red Hot Mayo, a chicken breast and some pickled red onion.

Then some avocado,

tomato slices,

some lettuce and the lid.

Here are the Plated shots with a Stone Xococeza Mocha Stout and some Sun Chips.

Thanks for looking.

Call it what you want but anything you call it it should have tantalizingly tasty in it.  It looks delicious and all the flavors sound spot on.  Guess I'm just a simple guy though, I'd just call it a Blackened chicken breast sandwich.

I agree with @TKOBBQ, it looks great... simple and to the point...

 

i HAVE noticed that the use of the word 'blackened' sometimes has a tendency to turn people off for fear of eating lump... i get it... i have had 'blackened' fill-in-the-blank that tasted like doodly-squat... the carbon was so much that there WAS no flavor

in those cases, i guess the proper term would be 'BURNT', which this sammich is not...

 

@DerHusker... have you made a version of the 'hot' chicken? I ask because it looks like you have a solid grasp on the way a skillet works... I am behind the learning curve on CI

      First attempt at chicken shawarma last night on the Joetisserie.
       
      Came out really good, very pleased with the result and so easy. Juicy, tender moist chicken, with gnarled crispy edges.
       
      Followed Smoking Dad's recipe from his YouTube video.

      Wanted to try out one of my new knives so decided what better way that to make some Pico de Gallo. Sorry I didn’t get any pics as I was filming a video instead. (Video link below)

      Thanks for watching.
       
      The recipe is in the video but not listed in writing. I shared it on this site before so if you don’t want to listen to the entire video you can hit this link instead.

      If I had stopped at the cheap Mercer knife, I had purchased from Amazon I’d have been fine. (See previous thread) Unfortunately, there was a sale over Labor Day at Cutlery and More, so my wife is now mad at me because I purchased 3 more new knives.
       
      She suggested I have a problem  and to this I must agree.  I didn’t “need” any of these knives, but one was such a good price and the other two are, as Old Man Parker said on Christmas Story, “Indescribably Beautiful!”.  Below is a short video of the objects of my wife’s wrath.
      This first knife is a 9” Dragon Storm Chef’s knife by Apogee Cutlery. It’s made of BD1N steel with a HRC of 63. It was on Clearance with an additional 20% off for Labor Day.
       
      This next knife is an Enso SG2 7” Bunka knife. It’s made of 101 layers of stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was on sale with special price and 20% off for Labor Day.
       
      This last knife is an Miyabi Artisan 9.5” Kiritsuke knife. It’s made of 2 layers of hammered stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was offered at special introductory price for Labor Day.
       
      Here’s the video:
       
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3fkX9xlPvk
       
      I’m going to have to cook some good food using these knives to get out of the Doghouse.

      The last time we rented an Airbnb I vowed to buy a knife roll and bring some of my knives with me so I could have the use of sharp knives instead on the dull knives they always seem to have. (It’s not that they need to be expensive, but if they were at least sharp I wouldn’t complain)
       
      Well we just got back from spending a week in Reno at an Airbnb and you can guess how the knives were. So, I’ve made good on my vow and got myself a cheap knife roll. I also purchased this Mercer Millenia 8” chef knife to go in it.
       
      As I said they don’t need to supply expensive knives and this new Mercer knife is proof of this. (It cost me whooping $18.00) So here is a video of the new knife and roll and the different knives I’ll be taking with me when we go on our next trip like this. (An assortment of mostly Mercer and Victorinox knives)

      Finally pulled the trigger on a Joetisserie and can’t wait to start using it. First up want to do a chicken as that seems simple and easy, but given the two pack Costco sells has anyone done two birds at the same time on a KJ Classic? I’ve searched but haven’t found much Info with people cooking two, other than a picture which seems to be a Big Joe. Seems like it might be tight but should make it as long as they aren’t over 5lbs each. Also wondering if that affects cooking time.
