Arnaud's Creme Brulee

Serves 6

6 egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.

In a medium bowl with mixer set at medium speed, beat the egg yolks and sugar. Set aside.

In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to a boil. Remove from heat immediately and add to the egg-sugar mixture, continuing to beat. Add the vanilla extract and continue to beat until the mixture is completely cool.

Pour the cooled mixture into six 4-ounce custard cups. Line the sides of a 3-inch high baking pan with parchment paper, then place the cups in the pan. Add water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the cups. (The paper stabilizes the water and prevents the cups from shaking.) Bake for 50 minutes.

Remove the cups from the pan, allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled.

Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar over the top of each cup. Place the cups on a sheet pan and set under the broiler until the sugar melts, darkens and forms a crust.

Wendy's Chicken Caesar Fresh Stuffed Pita

Wendy's Chicken Caesar Fresh Stuffed Pita



6−8 cups vegetable oil
1/3 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Pepper Sauce
2/3 cup water
1 cup all−purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
4 chicken breast fillets
4 plain hamburger buns
8 teaspoons mayonnaise
4 lettuce leaves
4 tomato slices

Preheat 6−8 cups of oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees.

Combine the pepper sauce and water in a small bowl. Combine the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, onion powder,paprika and garlic powder in another shallow bowl.

Pound each of the chicken pieces with a mallet until about 3/8−inch
thick. Trim each breast fillet if necessary to help it fit on the bun. Working with one fillet at a time, coat each piece with the flour, then dredge it in the diluted pepper sauce. Coat the chicken once again in the flour mixture and set it aside until the rest of the chicken is breaded.

Fry the chicken fillets for 8−12 minutes or until they are light brown
and crispy. Remove the chicken to a rack or to paper towels to drain. As chicken is frying, prepare each sandwich by grilling the face of the hamburger buns on a hot skillet over medium heat. Spread about 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise on the face of each of the inverted top buns. Place a tomato slice onto the mayonnaise, then stack a leaf of lettuce on top of the tomato. On each of the bottom buns, stack one piece of chicken.
