We do love us some curry chicken salad at our house. And when I discovered that the deli counter at Safeway sells shredded rotisserie chicken breast for $5.99/# – I was ON IT! This is fast, easy, moderately healthy and although it does involve some chopping, no cooking is required!
Mix it all up with a little mayo (or Greek yogurt, if you’re lucky enough to be able to eat dairy), and let’s eat!
No process shots this week, kids. Just the final product – this is a planned over. When chicken breasts are on sale for 99 cents a pound, I always buy a big pack and roast them, then dice them and freeze them for quick meals through the week.
This dish features beautiful kale – they way it is best. Sautéd with garlic, served with a touch of balsamic vinegar. Not puréed in to some hipster smoothie like a hamster shat in your glass, or baked to a chip that looks and tastes like the shit petrified in your fridge for six months. No, this is luscious, tender but firm, sweet and slightly bitter. A fantastic foil for the melting sweetness of the onion and potato. Yum!
Not much of a post this week – just a quick snapshot and link.
Chopped romaine with blanched petit green beans, roasted hazelnuts, cubed leftover roast chicken breast and some chèvre. Tied together beautifully with this blueberry vinaigrette (although I added a tsp. of toasted hazelnut oil)
