Carl's Jr. Chicken Club

2 whole chicken breasts, boned and halved
1 cup Lawry's Teriyaki Marinade
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
8 slice bacon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup alfalfa sprouts, loosely packed
4 lettuce leaves
4 large tomato slices
4 Slice Kraft Swiss Cheese Singles

Marinate the chicken in the teriyaki marinade in a shallow bowl for 30 minutes. Preheat a clean barbecue to medium grilling heat. Brown the faces of each bun in a frying pan on the stove. Keep the pan hot.

Cook the bacon in the pan until crisp, then set aside. Grill the chicken breasts 5 to 8 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of mayonnaise on the face of each bun, top and bottom.

Divide the sprouts into 4 portions and mound on each bottom bun. On the sprouts, stack a lettuce leaf, then a slice of tomato. Place one chicken breast half on each of the sandwiches, a top the tomato.

Next, stack a slice of Swiss cheese on the chicken, and then the 2 pieces of bacon, crossed over each other. Top off the sandwich with the top bun. Microwave for 15 seconds on high. Makes 4 sandwiches.

Carnegie's Club Room Triple Fudge Torte

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 squares (1 ounce each) melted bitter chocolate
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup sour cream
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 cup water
Pastry cream (see recipe)
Frosting (see recipe)
Fresh flowers or fruit for garnish

To make cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugar in bowl. Add eggs and beat well. Add vanilla, melted chocolate and baking soda. Alternately beat in sour cream, flour and water. Divide batter evenly between 2 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans.

Bake in preheated oven 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Center should spring back when touched or toothpick inserted into center of cake should come out clean. Cool on rack. While cake cools, prepare pastry cream filling and frosting.

Generously spread pastry cream over bottom layer of cooled cake. Add top layer. Then frost, spreading thick layers of frosting over top and around sides of cake. Use remaining frosting to pipe decorative edges around top edge of cake, as well as around bottom edge of cake. Decorate with fresh flowers or fruit if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve and refrigerate any leftovers. Makes 8 to 12 servings.

Note: There may be some additional frosting left over. It can be refrigerated 1 to 2 days and used to frost other desserts.

Carnegie's Pastry Cream and Frosting

Pastry cream:

5 egg yolks
2 1/2 cups half-and-half cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 to 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup flour
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Slightly beat egg yolks in top of double boiler. Gradually add half-and half, sugar, cocoa to taste, flour and gelatin, whisking constantly. Cook until thickened, continuing to whisk, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, add butter and vanilla. Refrigerate until cool and of spreading consistency.

Frosting:

10 egg whites
2 cups sugar (divided)
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 cups (8 sticks) butter, room temperature

Stir together egg whites and 1 1/4 cups sugar in saucepan. Add water and cream of tartar. Cook over low heat, beating with portable mixer set at low speed. Do not let mixture foam in pan. Continue to beat over low heat, until mixture reaches 160 degrees. Transfer mixture to large bowl.

In separate bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cocoa powder. Add to egg white mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating constantly on high speed until sugar is dissolved. To be sure sugar is dissolved, rub a small amount of meringue between thumb and forefinger; it should not feel grainy. At this point, frosting should be glossy and stand in soft peaks.

Cut butter into chunks and gradually add to frosting, whipping mixture until butter is completely worked in. Mixture should be smooth and spreadable, but will stiffen with additional whipping.

Cork N Cleaver Chicken Stock

1 chicken (3 to 4 pounds) or 3 pounds cut-up chicken
1 bunch celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 onion, quartered
2 gallons cold water
1 lemon, halved
1 bay leaf
4 sprigs fresh parsley
2 sprigs fresh thyme
3 tablespoons chicken base
2 to 3 whole black peppercorns

Place chicken, celery, carrots and onion in very large, deep pot. Add water. Slowly bring to boil. Cook, regularly skimming off surface froth. Squeeze a few drops lemon juice into soup occasionally to help keep stock clear. Combine bay leaf, parsley, thyme, chicken base and peppercorns in center of a piece of cheesecloth and tie shut. Drop into boiling liquid.

Reduce heat to simmer, loosely cover with lid and simmer 1 to 11/2 hours. Do not let stock come to hard boil as this will result in cloudiness. Remove from heat. Remove chicken, debone and cut into pieces for later use.

Strain stock and discard solids. Refrigerate to congeal fat. Remove excess fat before using stock to make soups. Makes about 1 gallon stock.

Chen's Walnut Crispy Chicken

1 pound chicken breast meat, cut into small strips
2 egg whites, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup water chestnut starch (or use cornstarch)
1 cup raw walnuts (not cooked or salted, available at Asian markets)
1/3 cup honey
Corn oil for frying
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup reduced-fat milk (do not substitute)

Put chicken strips in medium bowl, then add beaten egg whites and salt. Mix to coat chicken, then set aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, toss chicken pieces in water chestnut starch. Dust off excess starch. Set aside. Rinse walnuts in water, then toss in honey and mix well.

Using wok or deep skillet, add enough oil so that you will be able to deep-fry first the nuts and then the chicken. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Add walnuts to oil and fry until they turn golden brown, stirring regularly. This will take just 1 to 2 minutes. Remove walnuts from oil and drain on paper towels. To hot oil add chicken. Cook, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes.

In medium saucepan, combine mayonnaise, sweetened condensed milk and 2% milk. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. Sauce is done when it starts to bubble. Put chicken in large bowl. Pour hot sauce over chicken pieces and mix well.

To serve: Divide chicken pieces among 4 serving plates. Top each serving with walnuts. Garnish with vegetables if desired. Makes 4 servings.

1 gallon chicken stock (divided)
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pound large diced tenderloin beef tips
1 medium yellow onion, cut into medium dice

Cook until onion is soft but not browned. Add fennel and cook a few minutes. Add cabbage and cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently so that cabbage does not brown.

Add garlic and cook briefly, just until garlic smell becomes pronounced. Add white wine, eggplant, tomato and simmer about 3 minutes. This is to start to cook out the alcohol. Add liquid from beans, remaining chicken stock, the beef tips, oregano, zucchini and cauliflower. Simmer over low heat about 20 to 30 minutes, until vegetables are soft.

Crazy Water Blue Cheese Bread Pudding

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, room temperature
2 baguettes (about 10 ounces each) preferably day old, diced in 1-inch cubes
3 cups (about 3/4 to 1 pound) crumbled blue cheese (use only a high-quality cheese, do not use a cheese that is too sharp)
5 eggs
5 egg yolks
3 cups whipping cream
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon pepper or to taste

In small saute pan, saute onion and garlic in butter over medium heat 20 minutes or until lightly caramelized. Place half the bagette cubes in ungreased 13-by-9-inch pan. Top with half the blue cheese and all the onion mixture. Top with remaining bread and cheese.

In medium bowl, whisk together whole eggs, egg yolks, cream, salt and pepper. Pour over pudding, being careful to soak all parts of pudding. Loosely tent with foil. Let soak 30 minutes at room temperature. If soaking longer, refrigerate. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake pudding in preheated oven 40 minutes. At this point pudding will be loosely set but not brown. Uncover and cook another 10 to 15 minutes or un- til firm and golden brown. Remove from heat and let set 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Makes 12 to 16 servings.
