Well, that’s what Chris calls it.
I guess that explains it.
It kind of looks like road kill.
But it is delicious!
We had something similar to this a long, long time ago.
I can still remember how the music used to make me smile.
Oops. I didn’t mean to get distracted.
We had South Beach Chicken at at restaurant/microbrewery called Hops.
They are no longer open here. I don’t know if they have any locations left open, but this chicken was awesome.
I’m sorry, Hops. I miss you.
And you had good beer.
Vaya Con Dios.
I really loved this chicken.
It is topped with goat cheese and a tomato and roasted corn salad.
BTW — do you love the chip in my bowl?
It’s kind of like the one on my shoulder.
But the real star of the show…
HOLLY! What are you doing here?
The real star of the show is the vinaigrette that goes on the corn and tomato business.
Road Kill Chicken
Or you can call it South Beach Chicken if it makes it more appealing.
Inspired by Hops — no longer in business but here is an old press release I found on the interwebs.
2 chicken breasts, cooked (you can do this however you want, grilled, baked, pan seared, etc.)
4 oz goat cheese
1 tomato, seeded and diced
1 ear of corn, cooked (again, do however you like, grilled, boiled, roasted or canned if that blows up your dress)
1/4 – 1/3 cup of vinaigrette, recipe to follow or use what you want
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon tarragon
1 tablespoon Dijon
1 tablespoon honey
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tablespoon shallot
Combine all ingredients in a Mason jar and shake the sh… bejeesis out of it. What did you think I was going to say?
For the chicken:
About 5 – 7 minutes before the chicken is done top with goat cheese and finish cooking. All you are really doing here is melting cheese and making sure the juices of the chicken run clear.
While cheese is melting and chicken is finishing combine corn and tomato. Toss in a few tablespoons of vinaigrette — your choice how much.
Add the corn-tomato-vinaigrette business to the top of the goat cheese.
Trust me. It may look like road kill, but it is good.
