Remove the visible fat and connective tissue from the chicken thighs and liberally coat each side with Chef of the Future’s Floribbean rub. Coat with the cooking spray. Grill the chicken until done, let cool for easy handling.

Prepare the Jalapeños and the Poblano peppers, cut off the tops, and slice lengthwise on one side, remove the seeds before Fire Roasting. Char (fire roast) remove the skin. Immediately after fire roasting, place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let the peppers “sweat” until cool enough to touch. The skin can be removed with a paper towel, do not run under water

Cut the Jalapeño peppers crosswise into 1” sections to prep for stuffing. Liquefy the Poblano pepper to be added to the crème fraiche.

Chef of the Future Guest Chef Recipe The Poblano Puree

For each cup of Crème Fraiche add 8 tsp of the Poblano puree and 4 tsp of the Green Tabasco sauce, blend together for the finishing drizzle or can be used for dipping.

Open the pepper and put in some Gorgonzola, a 1” sliced piece of the chicken, the licorice and more cheese, surrounding the chicken. Compress the pepper lightly to reform the pepper. Remover the casing from the sausages. Use ½ of a sausage link, form into a round ball and flatten on a piece of plastic wrap to form a patty, ¼” thick, 5” around. If the sausage sticks to your fingers, dip you fingers in a bowl of cool water. Place the filled pepper, cut side down, in the center of the patty and seal all edges so it forms a round ball. Coat the balls liberally with the Floribbean Rub and spray with the cooking spray.

“Spicy Stegosaurus Balls”

Grill the balls, elevated off the grill grate, over a low flame/heat to help prevent flare-ups, for about 15 minutes or until the center is 165° F. This can be done using an open spring form pan with a perforated grilling pan (coated with the cooking spray) so there are no grill marks and the balls retain their shape. Turn the balls so the color stays even. Plate the balls, either whole or halved. Drizzle the Poblano Crème or serve on the side for dipping. Serve immediately.       Chef of the Future Guest Chef Recipe
