Chloe Friederich


4 cups of cooked Shredded Chicken
4 large Poblano Peppers
4 cloves of garlic
cup of Purple onion
1 can of Corn
1-2 Limes
1 Cup shredded cheese
Panko bread crumbs
8 eggs
canola oil

1. If you are making your own shredded chicken, place 3-4 pieces of chicken in a pot with broth, sliced jalapenos, and cumin seeds. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer, cooking until chicken is cooked through 20-30 min.

2. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly coat poblano peppers in oil and place in the oven. Cook turning peppers every few minutes until the skin on every side is done (About 10min). Bubbles will appear and the skin may turn brown. (Don't overcook the peppers or they will fall apart!) Once the peppers are done take them out of the oven and place them into a ziplock bag for 8min. This will make the skin easier to pill off.

3. Drain the can of corn. Spread onto a sheet of foil with butter, salt, and paprika. Place in oven with poblanos until the corn is cooked to your liking. (I like mine to get a little crispy)

4. Mix shredded chicken, roasted corn, purple onions & Garlic (I like mine raw but you can saute them), lime, cheese, and seasoning in a bowl and set aside.

5. Divide flour, Panko, and beaten eggs into 3 separate bowls/plates.

6. Once the skin on the peppers is removed (don't make yourself crazy just get what you can) make a slice down one side big enough to stuff. Remove the seeds and then stuff with the shredded chicken mixture. Close your peppers up holding it together with toothpicks.

7. Prepare a pan with slightly standing oil at medium-high heat.

8. Dip peppers Flour, Egg, Panko and then place into the hot oil. Cook on all sides until a golden brown.

9. Remove toothpicks and serve with your favorite sauce!! (Hatchgreen Chili, Queso)

This dish will make you crazy but it's worth every second! If during the process it looks like everything is falling apart just keep going!!! Once that panko is on and in the oil, everything will be okay :) I've learned the less the peppers are cooked the easier everything is, I like to cook mine just enough to get the skin off but keep them firm.
