The other day my husband was on his way home from class, and asked if he should pick up dinner. I suggested a Safeway roasted chicken, and then made some side dishes from our farm share food.
Of course, with a family of 3, we always end up with leftover chicken, usually dark meat. So what to do with it? Since we are in a state of needing quick meals, the answer was either soup or salad, but who makes dark meat chicken salad?
Well, after making THIS dark meat chicken salad, I think the answer is "us."
So here you go, Leftover Chicken Salad (the dark meat version)
Dark meat pulled from leftover roasted chicken
1 T romesco sauce bought from the Crackpot Gourmet
2 small ribs celery, chopped finely
2 shallots, diced
mayonnaise to taste
salt to taste
small amount of fresh parsley
Chop chicken, parsley, celery, and shallots together, and mix in sauce, mayo, and salt. Serve on very good bread with a slice of heirloom tomato, and say YUM a lot.
Coming soon: Fresh Corn and Tomato Soup. Now with a kick!
