OK, chicken cordon bleu is an awesome dish. Let’s get that straight. The idea of stuffing ham and cheese into a piece of chicken is probably one of the oldest instances of food porn there is. However, chicken cordon bleu is probably the worst dish to brag about eating with your friends because the name just sounds so pretentious.
So what if there was a similar dish that had a FOODBEAST twist to it?
We met up with Josh Elkin and somehow ended up in the Foodbeast kitchen where the Chicken Corn Dog Bleu was born.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 chicken breast per dog
- ham and swiss cheese slices, 2 each per dog
- aluminum foil
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of corn meal
- 4 tsp of baking powder
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1 egg
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 pilsner glass
- oil for frying
- mustard for dipping
Here’s what to do:
Cut a hole in your chicken breast.
Stuff that hole with your rolled up slices of ham and swiss cheese.
Wrap the filled chicken breast in aluminum foil.
Bake in the oven for 30 mins at 400 degrees F. Until cooked.
Throw flour, corn meal, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl and mix your dry ingredients.
Crack your egg and add your milk to the dry corn dog mixture. Blend evenly.
Pour your corn dog batter into a tall pilsner glass, or any tall narrow glass.
Insert a corn dog stick into your chicken and dunk it slowly into the corn dog batter.
Deep fry your corn dog until it’s golden brown.
Now, it’s ready to serve. We recommend with a side of hot mustard.
