    Chicken Donuts

    This post comes with a view warning!


    Chicken Donuts have been in my thoughts for some time now, so here's the first attempt!

    Take your Favorite Hot Sauce, In to a pan and bring to a bring to a gentle boil, mix Arrowroot (Arrowroot is best for freezing) with some cold water to make a slurry. And to sauce to make a consistent like Jam. Put into ice cube mould and then into the freezer. (Do this the day before you make the Donuts).

    Take some Skinned and Boned Chicken Thighs, remove any fat. Pound out to about 3/8 (10mm) thick. Use a cookie cutter to make your circle then cut round with a sharp knife.


    Take some MEAT GLUE and mix with some water.

    Apply to two chicken circles, place a frozen Hot Sauce cube in the centre and cap with the othe chicken circle. Place in fridge over night for the magic to work.

    Pre heat smoker to 368F (180'C)

    Egg wash Donuts, they cover in PANKO Breadcrumbs.

    Into smoker for about 1 1/2 Hours until Breadcrumbs have browned and chicken has reached 165F.

    Remove and dust with S&P.

    WARNING!! allow to cool slightly as the Jam is HOT!!!!

    Money Shot.

    OK, let be honest, would I do them again? YES, but not the same method. I would go traditional!!

    Ground chicken, Wrapped around frozen Hot Sauce cube, egg wash, breadcrumbs coat, cook!

    Why stop at Chicken Donuts,
    Ground Lamb with Mint Sauce.
    Ground Turkey with Cranberry
    Ground Beef with Horseradish
    Ground Pork with Apple Sauce
    Ground Chicken with Sweet Chilli Sauce

    Enjoy Smokin Monkey. �

    I love this! This is one of those dishes that crosses over to Molecular Gastronomy and I really do like that. I've used arrowroot and it's a wonderful product. I wish we could come up with another name other than "meat glue". LOL! People get a misconception about it. It's a natural product that, unfortunately, is misused by the industry, BUT I feel when someone like you or me for that matter, uses it then it's certainly a worthy product. Great job, looking forward to seeing more of this kinda thing from you!

    Thanks Alaska, as it says in my Signature, pick it up and run with it!

    Thanks for the reply Squirrel, sorry for PM with this, but read your profile and noticed the Molecular Gastronomy link, and did not want you to miss it.

    Hi Mdboatbum, frozen Jelly is the way to go with this or try to inject sauce in like traditonal donuts!

    Hi Dirtsailor, I had to use search bar to find out what a Hoser is, it's being this side of the pond that's the problem! �
