Yield - 12 - 14 Luncheon sized servings
12 - 14 , 6 OZ BONELESS/SKINLESS CHICKEN BREAST
12 OZ BOTTLE DIXIE BEERS CRIMSON VOODOO ALE
1 TBSP BUTTER (Melted)
6 MEDIUM RUSSET POTATOES (Skinned and cut into 1/4 inch thick medallions)
2 EARS FRESH YELLOW CORN (Cut off of the husk)
1/2 LB FRESH MUSHROOMS (Sliced)
1 TBSP GRANULATED GARLIC
1 TSP GROUND CAYENNE PEPPER
1- 50 OZ CAN CONDENSED CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP
Gris Gris Seasoning
1/4 CUP FRESH THYME LEAVES
1/4 CUP FRESH LEMON BASIL LEAVES
1 TBSP SPANISH PAPRIKA
1/2 TSP GROUND CAYENNE PEPPER
1/2 TSP GROUND WHITE PEPPER
In a large stainless steel bowl marinate the chicken breast in the Dixie Ale. (MAXIMUM time 30 minutes, you only want to color the outside of the meat, while leaving the center of the meat pearly white.)
Meanwhile, grease the inside of a 2 inch hotel pan with the melted butter. Layer the potatoes, corn and mushrooms in the pan. Sprinkle with granulated garlic and cayenne pepper, spread the mushroom soup evenly over the veggies. Drain the Crimson Voodoo marinade from the chicken breast and add to the pan.
Add the gris gris seasoning to the chicken breast, thoroughly coat the breast by turning them in the bowl. (The paprika and cayenne pepper will again give the breast a crimson color.)
Arrange the breast on top of the vegetables and soup mixture in the hotel pan. (At this point the pan can be covered with film and refrigerated over night.)
Preheat oven to 325F and slow bake uncovered for 1 hour and 15 minutes. (Or until the chicken breast are done through out and the potatoes are cooked tender.)
Serve in a standard catering chafer set-up.
For caterers and restaurateurs, this is an easy luncheon or buffet entree to prepare and serve. It is low in fat and sodium; high in protein and carbohydrates.
Gris gris, is a potion made by voodoo priestess, I dont know what they put in it but this might be a good start! (BTW, gris gris is pronounced gree gree.)
