Half Drunken Chicken and Sweet Potato Frito Pumking Pie! It's prOntastic!
Well over in the throwdown section, a few wackadoodles decided it would be a good idea to call the next TD a Half Drunken Three Way Challenge. So now I gotta come up with something cooked with chicken, a vegetable and be half drunk or cook something half drunk or something like that. Without further ado this is what I came up with.

I spatchcocked a chicken, rubbed it with Plowboys Fin & Feather and smoked it over lump and mesquite on the egg.

I tore the chicken apart and made a stock for the chili sauce/Pumking gravy.

Then I gathered all the ingredients for phase 2.

Once the stock finished, I par cooked the sweet potatoes in the chicken stock for a few minutes while I chopped up the rest of the veggies.

Everyone diced up and waiting their turn.

If you've never had Southern Tier Imperial Pumking it tastes a lot like pumpkin pie, pretty much exactly like pumpkin pie actually. I saw a cooking show last week where they made chili using pumpkin pie spice and I thought it sounded interesting, so this is my take on that.

Because I was going to make a pie out of this "chili" I decided to do the veggies and the sauce separately so I didn't end up with a mixture that was too wet.

I wanted to get a nice base for my flavors so I started out by making a roux with 1/4 cup of peanut oil and 1/4 cup of flour, the finished roux was a little darker than this when I was finished.

After that I added about a cup of Pumking and 2 cups of the homemade chicken stock, 2 Tbs chili powder, a tsp of New Mexico Hot chili powder, some cumin, corriander, salt and fresh ground black pepper. This is what it looked like when it was done, I had around 3 cups total.

I sauteed the veggies and mixed those and the chopped chicken together with all but 1/2 cup of the sauce mix.

Somewhere in there I also had the kids help me mix up the crumb topping.

A bag of Frito's scoops and half the bag of cheddar, 3/4 of a stick of butter made it in there too.

My helpers really liked the crumb topping...and I wonder why my kitchen floor is always a mess. :tsk:

All of that went into the fridge overnight since it was now 2am.

The next day I got on with phase 3.

I fired up the egg to 350* and threw the pie on to bake.

There you have it, Half Drunken Chicken and Sweet Potato Frito Pumking Pie. :thumb:

Served with sour cream, chives and a chili Pumking sauce reduction.
