Marvelous! I made this recipe without changing anything(except that I didn't measure the cheese I grated an 8 oz. block). The Masa really adds to the flavor and texture. The filling was more than I needed to stuff four chicken breasts so I quickly thawed and pounded two more and had six. I will enjoy playing with this one. It would be good with pepper-jack cheese and I can see how different brands of sausage or salsa could really add variety. I served this with Mexican Rice II from this site. Mmmmm!
Great recipe although I will admit I made changes. I didn't have chorizo and I was looking to use up some chicken breasts and found this recipe. I used two links of cilantro chicken sausage from Whole Foods 1/2 cup Italian cheese blend and 1/2 cup goat cheese. I pounded the chicken breasts down and spread the sausage mixture over top. Rolled them up and let them sit in the fridge until I was ready. Then I rolled them in the masa harina (you don't really need 1 1/2 cups -- 1 cup or less will do) and put them on the lightly oiled cookie sheet and sprayed with Pam. Baked for 20 minutes at 375 degrees and raised temperature to 400 for last 15 minutes and then broiled for a few minutes before serving to get it slightly brown. My son loves chicken although my husband is less inclined to eat chicken and they both loved this. The masa harina forms a crust on the outside that keeps everything moist inside. The sausage and cheese cooked evenly as did the chicken while staying moist. They loved it! I didn't serve it with salsa -- just plain although I think a balsamic reduction would be fantastic with this. Thanks!
This was great! A nice change! Although I forgot to add the salsa to mine it still tasted great but would've been better with! I live a sheltered life but this was the first time I had tried chorizo....LOVE it! This is an easy recipe to play around with. You could make it mild or hot or change the cheese up a little pour a cheese sauce over whatever! I didn't make any changes to the recipe and it was great! (Just don't forget the salsa!!)
This was a hit with my teenagers and husband. I substituted crushed corn flakes for the masa harina...FANTASTIC! Loved the cornflake coating. In addition to the salsa I served with sour cream on the side. The combination of the chicken and the chorizo/cheese filling was nice and balanced. Definitely had leftover filling I could have made 8 breasts easily. Family already asking me to make this one again.
This was so terribly difficult for me to make but it was so good. I accidentally mixed the cheese and chorizo right after browning the chorizo so it melted immediately. It didn't seem to matter though; my guests scarfed theirs down in seconds. I made it with the recipe for Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote). Yum yum yum.
