Smoked chicken salad

February 12, 2012

Ready in: 10 min

  • Smoked chicken
  • Baby-leaf salad (pre washed)
  • Granary Slided bread, toasted and cut into little squares for croutons.
  • Capers (Optional)
  • Dressing: Wholegrain mustard – a lot! Creme Fraiche, Virgin Olive Oil, Pepper, Lemon Juice.

Simples! … and quick.

Key is to actually find the smoked chicken, I have been struggling to get hold of one in the UK for a while, so when I saw it whole and *smoked* at my local butchers this weekend (The Pure Meat Co at Kentish Town Road) I couldn’t get it home fast enough.  This smoked chicken has so much flavour that it turns salad into a treat.  Also makes man eat salad.

Plus you can make low carb version cutting down on the croutons.

    Sounds nice … and manly.

    You can make your own smoked chicken, well – you can cheat.

    Make a smoked butter by mixing smoked paprika, butter, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Then smearing it all over the whole chicken and on the breasts under the skin. Bake as normal.

    It’s not ‘smoking’, but it’ll have a similar flavour.

    Mmm nice one Mike, I guess I have never tried baking chicken with Paprika before, I cant help but dose mine in lemon every time, but I think your idea sounds delicious. Will have to make that when we get back to the UK and let you know how it goes!
