Priscilla Smith's question about how to use leftover cornbread muffins and Janet Scott's question about what to do with habanero peppers rumbled around in my mind for the last week or so. This recipe is in response to these questions.

Hope you like it.

How to Make CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350º

    Crumble cornbread into mixing bowl
  • 2In food processor, finely dice pecans

    Mix into cornbread
  • 3Put butter in heavy skillet over medium heat

    In same food processor, finely dice onion, celery and habanero

    For less heat, you can substitute a jalapeno or hatch chili for the habanero

    Pour into butter

    Saute just until onion is translucent, stirring frequently to avoid burning

    Pour into cornbread mixture
  • 4Add seasonings and egg to cornbread mixture

    Begin adding chicken broth a cup at a time until mixture is nice and moist but not "runny". You want to keep it firm enough to form a ball

    Set aside

    Note: can be made ahead and chilled overnight in fridge.
  • 5Place chicken breasts one at a time on cutting board, cover with piece of waxed paper or plastic wrap.

    With flat of tenderizing mallet (or edge of saucer) pound chicken until flat and flexible

    When all four pieces are tenderized, place on parchment paper or waxed paper on counter and dry rub both sides of chicken with salt and pepper to taste

    Divide cornbread into roughly 4 equal portions

    Place one portion on each chicken breast

    Wrap chicken around cornbread mix, folding chicken over at bottom

    Wrap bacon slice around the stuffed chicken
  • 6Place on foil or parchment lined baking pan with open side (flaps) down

    Cook for 30-40 minutes at 350º until chicken is cooked through

    Note: If bacon begins to get too brown, cover chicken with foil tent
  • 7I know, I know, you always do this. But make sure you totally wipe down all counters with a bleach and antibacterial cleaner combination to get all the chicken "splatters" that might cause samonella. Do not use an ammonia based cleaner with the bleach as it will cause toxic fumes.
