Cook time: 10 min
- 1 1/2 lb. PERDUE boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1 cup(s) pancake baking mix
- 9 large eggs
- 1 cup(s) milk
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1/2 lb. mexican style chorizo sausage, casings removed
- 1/2 cup(s) chopped onion
- 1/2 cup(s) green pepper
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper
- 1 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 tbsp. hot sauce, for serving
- 1. In a bowl, whisk together pancake mix, 1 egg and milk until smooth. Batter should be thin. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Spray with cooking spray and add about 1/4 cup of batter. Swirl the batter in a large circle. Cook the pancake until the top bubbles, the bottom is set and the edges start to curl. Flip the pancake and cook a few seconds more. Turn out onto a plate and repeat until all the batter is gone. Keep warm until ready to use.
- 2. In the same non-stick skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Saute 4 to 5 minutes on each side until done. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170 degrees F. Transfer chicken breasts to a plate. When cool enough to handle, chop into 1-inch pieces To the same skillet, add the chorizo and saute until crumbly and almost cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onion and green pepper. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Return the chopped chicken and heat through 1 to 2 minutes more.
- 3. In a bowl, whisk together the remaining 8 eggs, salt and black pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the chicken and sausage. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until eggs are cooked through.
- 4. To serve, place a pancake on a plate. Divide the chicken mixture over the 4 pancakes. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and wrap them up. Serve with hot sauce if desired.
Tip: This recipe makes about 12 pancakes. Use what you need and then freeze the rest. Once cooled, stack each pancake between layers of parchment paper or waxed paper. Place in a resealable plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
