    Chicken & shrimps with Corn Bread

    Tonight I just could not figure out what to do with last nights roast chicken, which I had taken all the meat from, then cooked it down for stock....After a long deliberation with myself, and checking out MasterCook, and all my cook books and my head, I finally went with my head, and this is the result:
    First the cornbread:

  • 1 cup cream corn
  • 1 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup oil or melted shortening or margarine or butter
  • 2 tbls diced green chiles, hot(Jals)
  • 1/2 cup sharp, grated cheddar cheese or Asiago
  • 2 tbls marge or butter
  • Preheat the oven to about 400F and put a one and a half qt casserole dish in with the 2 tbls of butter or marge, and let it melt and get the casserole dish hot...Combine the corn, cornmeal,flour, eggs, soda ,salt. milk, oil, chiles, and about half the cheese, and mix until well combined...when the casserole is hot pour this into it and put back in the oven for about 45 minutes...check this at about half an hour and put the remaining cheese on top, then back into the oven.
    The rest of the mess:

  • 1 cup chopped up chicken
  • 1/2 cup shrimp, cooked
  • 2 tbls flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbls chopped onion
  • enough Calvin's to make it as hot as you wish, plus at least 2 tbls of
  • chopped green chile(jalapeno)
  • Make roux with the flour and the milk, add a sprinkle of salt, add the chopped cilantro, the onion, the chiles, and mix into a smooth cream sauce, on medium heat, add the shrimp, stir it in, and then add the chicken....taste and add Calvin's until the heat range is in your neighbourhood....sprinkle with a good dollop of paprika, a tbls of dry sherry, well mixed in and serve with the corn bread, which is now ready to come outta the oven. Enjoy. Cheers, Doug in BC
