May entry: Chicken Parmigiana Fattie Q-View

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

First off, I had to grind some chicken breast but I don't have a meat grinder. My cuisinart food processor was quite up to the task though. I spiced up the ground chicken with oregano, basil, garlic powder and crushed red pepper.

Now for the sauce I wanted something fairly thick so I took a can of Hunts (basil garlic or some such) spaghetti sauce, added 2 cans of shitake mushrooms to it and simmered it until it was almost as thick as tomato paste (about 4 hours).

 

 

Now lets put this thing together (I seem to be missing a couple prep pics so I'll post what I have.

Here's where some pics are missing.

 

I started by spreading a layer of the sauce/mushroom mixture down followed by some grated parmesan cheese then topped that off with sliced mozzarella. One layer didn't seem like it'd be throwdown worthy so I repeated the process and added another layer of sauce, parmesan and mozzarella. 

 

This is on the second layer right before I added the second mozarella layer.

This thing was a bear to get rolled up with just one pair of hands. The guts wanted to keep oozing ahead of me but I managed to get the better of it.

 

Onto the smoker she goes.

It was real tasty and I'll be making more of these in the future.

 

Thanks for looking.

The ground chicken is a bit flimsier than sausage. Frequent trips to the freezer were required in making this fattie. Keep your chicken semi-frozen and you should have good results.
