I smoke roasted a Brined Chicken the other day. The brine consisted of some Lemonade, Sea Salt, Sugar, Bay Leaves and Black Peppercorns...

Image

I started with a frozen chicken, so I let it go for about 36 hours before air drying it in the fridge for another 10 hours...

Image

I rubbed it down with my Apple Rub and placed it on the BCC stand without a beer or soda. To be honest with you, I couldn't tell the difference from when I use a soda can or beer.

Image

The chicken turned out great! Nice and juicy and the skin was just right...I don't think the Lemonade did too much for the brine, although I smoke roasted the chicken with Apple Wood, so that may have masked any Lemon flavor that may have imparted into the chicken...

Decided to use some of the leftover chicken breast for a Round 2 recipe tonight.... I was scrolling through Steven Raichlen's Bold & Healthy Flavors and stumbled across a couple delicious looking recipes!

Image

I decided to go with Steven Raichlen's recipe for "South-of-the-Border "Lasagna" from page 117...(had to use my iPhone to cover the ingredient list. :wink: )

Image

This recipe calls for using "Cooked Salsa Verde" that you can find on page 8 of Bold & Healthy Flavors.

Image

Here's the Cooked Salsa Verde finished:

Image

The South-of-the-Border "Lasagna" used layers of Corn Tortillas, the Salsa Verde, the Chicken that I had previously smoke-roasted, fire roasted jalapenos (SR used poblanos which I couldn't find at Food Lion :roll: ), Sour Cream and Cheese... You use a Spring Form pan, so I wasn't about to ask my wife for permission to use that on the grill. :lol: So I placed it in the oven this time....still counts though since I smoke-roasted the chicken. :wink:

This recipe was absolutely delicious!!! The Salsa Verde was incredible, and the added smokiness of the Chicken put it over the top!

Image

Pretty healthy too.... We ate the portion that serves 4 people, but we also only used 9 tortillas instead of 12, so I imagine we saved quite a few calories doing that. This was one delicious recipe. I highly recommend this book for those of you who wish to shed a few pounds without sacrificing on flavor.

That is one interesting and creative recipe Dyal, and it looks like you hit it out of the park.

Now you just keep telling yourself that by eating twice as much and reducing just the tortillas by one quarter that you saved a lot of calories. :wink: I guess that's what they mean by the new math. :roll: Still, I can't give you too hard of a time because you did say "I imagine…"

You and your wife are two people (although if you keep eating double portions you may not look like two people). You ate a portion for four people. So two people eating a portion for four means you ate twice as much. Don't need to be a math genius to figure that out. What I might buy is that you misspoke.

As for my math skills, I always got A's in math in high school and I got a 780 on my SAT's for math, so you're barking up the wrong tree when you try to criticize my math skills.

Nice creativity! I have to admit that I don't look through that book as much as I should, especially if some the recipes can be adapted for use with leftover grilled or smoked foods.

It definitely has some good recipes in there. Just like the cover states.....Bold and Healthy Flavors. Not really too many grilled recipes, but definitely some recipes that you can adapt for the grill.

Wow! That looks great.

FWIW: I learned not to long ago that poblanos and pasillas are the same pepper.

Take care,
