Favorite Ingredients Friday - Greatest Hits Edition
As usual, I can't limit myself to one entry. I'm going to include two. The first, enchiladas de pollo, is my favorite dish; the second, old-fashioned peanut butter fudge, is the one I get the most hits on. My site stats show several visitors every day because they've Googled this recipe. I even still get comments on it after all this time.

Please comment if you've tried either recipe and let me know if it worked for you.

Enchiladas de Pollo - my favorite

1. 2 whole chicken breasts
2. Water
3. ½ small onion
4. 1 bay leaf
5. 8 peppercorns
6. Salt
7. ½ med onion, chopped
8. 3 T grated Parmesan cheese
9. 4 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (1 cup)
10. 1 (4 oz) can green chiles
11. 1 (13 oz) can tomatillos, drained
12. ¼ c cilantro
13. ¾ c whipping cream
14. 1 egg
15. Salt
16. ¼ c vegetable oil
17. 8 corn tortillas
18. 4 oz Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (1 cup)

Place chicken breasts in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add water to cover, onion, bay leaf, peppercorns and salt to taste. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 45 minutes or until tender. Cool chicken in broth. Drain; reserving broth for another use.Shred chicken, and mix with chopped onion, Parmesan cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese (1 cup). Add salt, if necessary, and set aside.

In a blender or food processor, combine green chiles, tomatillos, cilantro, whipping cream, and egg. Blend until smooth. Add salt to taste.Preheat oven to 350. Heat vegetable oil in small skillet. Using tongs, place each tortilla in hot oil until softened, about 5 seconds. Drain on paper towels, and place 1/8 of filling in center. Roll tightly, and place seam-side down in baking dish. Pour cream sauce over top, and sprinkle remaining cup of cheese.Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through and bubbly.

Note: I usually double this recipe, and freeze one before baking.

Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge - Reader's Favorite

2 cups sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp corn syrup
pinch of salt
2/3 cup peanut butter

Combine first four ingredients, and cook together until it reaches the soft ball stage. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Pour into buttered 8”x8” or 9”x9" square pan. This will set up quickly. Let cool, and cut into pieces.

Peanut butter can be smooth or chunky. You can use any kind of milk: whole, 2%, 1%, skim, even evaporated milk diluted with water. I used smooth peanut butter with 1% milk.

At the softball stage, this fudge is soft, but will hold a shape when cut. If you like your fudge a little firmer, cook it a little longer. My candy thermometer wasn’t working, so I cooked it over medium heat until the bubbles looked thicker and slower and not foamy. I was given this advice on a cooking board, and it worked great!
