Once a upon a time, there was a little strawberry blonde princess named Hannah. She use to live with this big ol' meanie named ECM. ECM made all Hannah's cousins and even the fair princess cook and clean just like that other fairy tale chick, Cinderelly. (Cinderelly, Cinderelly, night and day it's Cinderelly, make the fire, fix the breakfast...) ECM also made them peel potatoes, gut squid, and even clean out the pit of fire in the dungeon. She was a horrible and mean lady. One day, ECM was watching her husband, King Bourdain, on TV. The King was visiting the far reaches of an unknown land called the Tex-Mex border to bring home a long forgotten recipe called Corona Chicken. ECM decided to make this so-called Corona Chicken, even though there was no Corona beer in it. When ECM served this chicken to the fair little princess who ate like a little bird, she warned Hannah, "You probably won't like this, my pretty. It will be spicy and yucky poison! Bwahahaha" Hannah turned around ate the whole thing and came back for seconds. From then on, all around the land it was known as Hannah's Chicken.
Hannah's Chicken:(Corona Chicken from A.B. No Reservations Tex-Mex Episode. I'm sure my Texas readers will tell me if this is wrong.)
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded thin)
1 white onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
approximately 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
1 pound of bacon
teriyaki sauce for basting
toothpicks, soaked in water... so they won't catch fire 'cause I have never done that before. Nope, not me.
Mix together onions, cilantro, and jalapeno. On a flat work surface, lay down the flattened chicken and add about a spoonful of the onion mixture and cheddar cheese. Make sure not to overstuff, if you do the cheese and onions will drip all over the grill and will not stay in the chicken breast. Roll the chicken breast up tightly and secure with toothpicks. After the chicken breasts are stuffed and rolled you want to wrap a couple strips of bacon tightly around the chicken breasts (hehe, I said breast). I kinda poke the toothpicks through the bacon. Yeah, yeah, yeah...it's not the best description and not the best technique but you get the gist. Put the chicken on the grill and baste them with the teriyaki sauce. Also make sure to turn them a few times so they cook evenly.
Since the grill was up and running. I coated some fava beans in olive oil and threw them on the grill. Let the husk-shell-outer layer? of the fava bean blacken. What that does is steam the beans inside. Pop them out of their shell and add a little salt and you have the worlds easiest fava bean recipe.
Now I have got to go deal with that comatose census taker sitting in my dungeon since the King is still not home to take care of his manly duties. He's been gone an awfully long time. I wonder where he went off to.
sorry i couldn't resist
