We really like to create and share recipes that save our left-over chicken. Here is an in-house favorite to follow when you have chicken left from a meal at Le Coq Rico or from a home cooked bird. The recipe makes a tasty spread that goes great on crispy baguette.
Poultry, Tuna, & Tomato Tartare
1 large flavorful tomato
8oz left-over chicken meat
2 soup spoonfuls mayonnaise (home-made or store bought)
1 soup spoonful of canned tunafish
grilled/toasted baguette with fine virgin olive oil drizzle
A circular mold/ steel round form
1 tiny gherkin pickle
1 teaspoon of parsley
1 teaspoon of shallots
drizzle of olive oil & vinegar
salt, pepper and green garnish to taste
Peel the tomato. Separate the skin from the tomato and dice the flesh. Add a drop of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Put to the side.
Mix the tuna fish with the mayonnaise, then add in the chicken, the parsley, and a lemon squeeze if you please.
Finely chop the Gherkin pickle, the shallots, and the parsley. Mix together with olive oil, vinegar and a pinch of salt.
Place the steel round at the center of your serving plate. Fill first with the poultry mix, then top with the diced tomato. Carefully remove the steel round and add the garnish of your choice to the top.
Carefully circle the Tartare with the pickle/ shallot mix for taste and presentation.
Serve with toasted Baguette or bread of your choice!
