Pretty good dinner for a 104ºF day: Chilled chicken salad

leave a comment »

Just made this up. The key is first to make Nigella Lawson’s Tarragon Chicken, using a 6-lb chicken as described in this post (includes lessons learned). We had a drumstick, thigh, and wing apiece for dinner, so the breast was left. I used 1/2 the breast to make a chicken salad tonight. Measures are approximate.

2 avocados, diced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
4 thick scallions, sliced
1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup crumbled gorgonzola or blue cheese
1 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 breast from a 6-lb chicken cooked using Nigella Lawson’s recipe for Tarragon Chicken, diced
1 bunch cilantro, leaves chopped (or you could use tarragon)
1/3-1/2 cup homemade tarragon mayonnaise
2 tsp Maldon salt
1 Tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

Mix. Serve.

It’s really very tasty. The tarragon mayonnaise was my usual mayonnaise recipe with about 1/4 cup fresh tarragon leaves added at the beginning. This is with the optional two anchovy fillets, since they increase depth of taste by adding umami. I used Enzo Meyer Lemon Infused Extra Virgin Olive oil for the mayo.

The other 1/2 breast is destined for the same dish tomorrow.
