Chilaquiles (Red with Chicken)
10 CORN TORTILLAS, halved and cut into ½" strips
2 large POBLANO PEPPERS
1½ lbs CHICKEN BREASTS or THIGHS
2 cups CHICKEN BROTH
¼ cup WHITE WINE
1 BAY LEAF
1 medium ONION, diced
one 14 oz can ROTEL TOMATOES (your choice on the heat level)
½ cup HEAVY CREAM
1 cup shredded MONTEREY JACK CHEESE
Heat ½ inch of oil over medium heat and add tortilla pieces in batches. Fry until light golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Roast poblano peppers over a gas flame or under a broiler, turning, until blistered and charred, 5-10 minutes. Place in bag to steam for about 5 minutes. Rub skins off, remove seeds and veins. Rinse and pat dry. Cut into strips ¼” wide and 2” long.
Place chicken in pan with broth, wine, and bay leaf. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, reduce to low, cover and cook 12-14 minutes. Let cool in broth. When cool, pull meat off bones and shred. Discard skin and bones and reserve 1 cup broth for sauce.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a pan over medium heat and add onion, cooking while stirring for 3 minutes until it begins to brown. Add tomatoes and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, until liquid almost evaporates, about 5 minutes. Add reserved 1 cup broth, poblano pepper strips and cream. Cook 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place half the tortilla pieces in bottom of greased 2½ quart casserole. Spoon on half the chicken and half the tomato sauce. Repeat layers. Top with the shredded cheese. Bake, uncovered, 20-30 minutes, until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through. Serves 6.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
