Prep 15 MIN

Cook 1 HR

Ingredients

Smoked Lime Sour Cream

Method

Step 1

Start smoker on smoke setting.

 

Step 2

Smoked Lime Sour Cream: Place sour cream in a small metal or glass pie plate. Smoke sour cream on smoker for 30 minutes. Remove from smoker and prepare smoker to 350ºF (180ºC).

 

Step 3

Add, lime zest, juice and salt to sour cream and refrigerate until ready to use.

 

Step 4

In a bowl, toss chicken breasts with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cut onion into 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick rings, keeping them together. Stick a toothpick or small skewer through the onions rings to keep them together.  Coat vegetables with remaining oil.

 

Step 5

Place chicken and vegetables on smoker for about 25 minutes, turning occasionally until chicken is no longer pink inside and vegetables are tender. Remove to a cutting board and chop chicken and vegetables.

 

Step 6

Spread tortillas chips over parchment paper lined baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle chicken and vegetables all over chips. Lay brie slices over top and return to smoker for about 8 minutes or until cheese is melted.

 

Step 7

Sprinkle with baby arugula and serve with Smoked Lime Sour Cream.

 

Grilled Variation:

Soak wood chips for at least 30 minutes and place in a foil pan directly on heat source of grill. Turn onto high heat, leave one side of grill off. (Use set up for indirect heat) Once smoke starts to appear, place sour cream on unlit side of grill. Follow recipe as above.

 

Oven Variation:

Roast vegetables and chicken on a parchment paper lined baking sheet in a 400ºF (200ºC) oven for about 20 minutes.

 

Smoked Sour Cream Variation (without smoker or grill):

Stir a few dashes of liquid smoke into sour cream and taste. Add more if desired for a smoky addition to the sour cream.
