Chicken Cordon Bleu by It’s a Fiery World

Ken Alexander of It’s a Fiery World fame, is a self-professed Chilehead and all-around lover of hot and spicy food. Not only does he try new hot stuff so we don’t have to, but enjoys finding new ways of spicing up traditional dishes.

He recently discovered the Sauce Goddess Scorpion Pepper and Onion Pepper Relish and raised the heat on chicken cordon bleu. Be sure to follow him on Facebook for more upcoming Sauce Goddess recipes.

I met Jennifer Reynolds, aka “The Sauce Goddess” 4 years ago at the New Orleans Chile Pepper Extravaganza. I was instantly intrigued at her unusual spice blends and how she used them in popcorn and in sauces. Her Moroccan Blend, Latin Blend, and BBQ Sweet rubs all were used in her caramel popcorn – and were all delicious – and as unique as any products I had seen or reviewed to date. So when she asked me to play with her three relishes – The Roasted Scorpion and Onion, Roasted Habanero and Onion, and Roasted Jalapeno and Onion, I was excited to explore some recipe ideas. This video highlights a poor man’s chicken cordon bleu we made using the Scorpion relish. The Habanero and Jalapeno relishes will be highlighted in a written blog post very soon. First impressions – an element of sweet, but not overpowering, with a nice balance of sweet and savory. The onion is very prevalent, but after all, this is a roasted scorpion and onion relish. And speaking of the term relish- I would almost consider this more of a jam than a relish. It is smoother than a typical, salsaesque relish, which I think adds to it’s potential uses in lots of different products. And the Scorpion pepper puts out some heat, but not a smack you in the face heat. It’s more of a good, medium heat, which opens up this relish to a much larger audience. Very smart on Sauce Goddess’ part. None of the three relishes are super hot, in my opinion. And my wife, Robbie, aka “Mrs Fiery World”, who serves as my "average person" heat barometer, can handle the Scorpion relish without issue (since I have a tendency to under appreciate the heat in products –yes, I’m very proud of that!). As you’ll see in the video, the chicken cordon bleu was super easy to make. And using a single slice of bacon and a dusting of panko crumbs and low fat mozzarella cheese cut the calories way back, for those who are health conscious like we are. The results? The relish handled all the flavor needs of the chicken. It penetrated the chicken, gave it a really nice, even flavor with the savory, spicy, and subtle sweet layers working well together. The video will give you the cooking basics, so I won’t repeat myself here. I will reinforce that it took longer to bake than I originally thought, so think close to an hour cooking time to make sure your chicken hits the 165 degree internal temp. Final impressions – this is a very versatile, flavor rich relish (jam) with lots and lots of uses. Stay tuned for the habanero relish stuffed pork tenderloin (another super easy one), and the jalapeno relish twice baked stuffed tuna potatoes! You can find the Sauce Goddess on the interwebs at a lot of places, starting with her website, www.saucegoddess.com, where you can select from these fine relishes, caramel corn, spice rubs, beef jerky, etc. Some other ways to communicate are:facebook.com/saucegoddesstwitter.com/saucegoddessinstagram.com/thesaucegoddessyoutube.com/thesaucegoddesspinterest.com/saucegodddessSo go get you some, fire up your regular fare, and tell ‘em that It’s a Fiery World sent you! #saucegoddess #itsafieryworld
