    I smoked a big hen...rubbed with butter, sprinkled with kosher salt and cracked black pepper. I didn't want to overdo the seasonings...the rellanos are spicy enough. This was my supper last night, I had to smoke the chicken early to have time to do the rest.
    Funny how you can spend hours on a meal and eat it in less than 30 minutes.[​IMG]
    I used anaheim peppers, they are my favorite.






    I shredded the meat and added minced jalapeno, minced onion and some fresh shredded queso campesino.




    I blistered and peeled my chilies...stuffed them with the smoked chicken/cheese filling.




    Battered and fried....





    Served with my favorite rellanos sauce...




    Supper..........smoked chicken chilies rellanos.

    I forgot to add, I've made these with beef and pork before, but this was my first attempt at smoked chicken. I think these might be my new favorites.

    Those are my favorite kind of rellanos and hard to find. If I made some of those I would be a hero. What did you use for batter?

    Ray, I make a batter out of 2 whipped egg whites and 2 beaten yolks...I whip them separately and then combine them and fold 2 TBs of flour.

    I have never tried them with the smoked chicken....it turned out pretty tasty. :)

    Thank you Jeff.[​IMG]
    If you do not want to go to the trouble of peeling and stuffing your peppers, you can use canned peppers and layer them along with the filling in a casserole dish (kind of like lasagna).

    Cowgirl, Those look great, and are one of my favorite dishes, although I have never had them with chicken. I would have done the layered thing, a bite of chicken, then a bite of cheese and then some more chicken, a bite of pepper. Well, you get my drift.

    Thank you Triple B!
    I saute 1/2 of a meduim onion and 1 minced clove of garlic in a small amount of oil. Then I add 2 cups of chicken broth, 1 cup of tomato sauce, 1 tsp of kosher salt, 1/2 tsp of black pepper and 1/2 tsp of oregano.

    The sauce simmers for 10 minutes. I usually let it simmer while I'm coating and frying the peppers. It's not a fancy sauce, but it sure adds to the dish.[​IMG]
