This blog is so dead..I can’t believe it..the last time I posted here was Feb 15th. And Every time I cook something interesting I take a picture,to put here.I think part of it is because I don’t feel motivated enough to cook or that I am just too tired.OR lazy.
Well whatever the reasons..I have decided to seriously start posting something here..At least once a week..if not every day. And I have also decided to start cooking seriously again.. hopefully,I start enjoying it as much as I used to.
Let me waste no further time and post a recipe here..
Summers are here and I have just the right dish for a cool lunch on a hot summer day.
Chicken Salad Sandwich
8-10 slices of bread (white or whole wheat)
For the chicken paste:
200 gms of boneless chicken
1/2 tsp coriander leaves
1 pod of garlic
1 green chili
1/2 cup of fat-free mayonnaise OR 4 tbsp of fresh cream
1 small tomato cubed
1 small onion cubed
2-3 leaves of lettuce,finely shredded
1/2 cup walnuts pieces.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Boil the chicken pieces in 1 1/2 cup of water in a pressure cooker till the chicken pieces are tender.Retain the chicken stock.
Allow the chicken to cool down and then shred in a mixer.Grind the shredded chicken with a few teaspoonful of chicken stock.Add garlic and green chili and grind to a fine paste.
Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add coriander,salt to taste,mayonnaise and everything else.Blend well.
Take a slice of bread and spread this mixture evenly on it,cover with another slice.Cut diagonally and serve.
Serve it with a cool lemonade on a warm day.
Note: The original recipe that my mom got from somewhere called for Thyme,but she replaced it with Coriander leaves.When I decided to make this,I added tomatoes and onions and lettuce.The inspiration for walnuts came from
Arby’s Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
