This salad with cold chicken, chili and blueberries is another lovely meal made of leftovers. If you have chicken meat left, turn to this recipe. As you might have discovered from earlier posts, I am the Queen of Leftovers.
Cold chicken can be completely uninspiring whilst looking at you from the fridge, but it can also be the most perfect ingredient in a creative leftover dish. For me it’s important to create a visual nice effect of my ingredients. Like in many other leftover-recipes, this is mostly about getting inspired of what is in your fridge and make a ball out of a green chili or a dull halloumi cheese (or whatever you’ve got).
How to Create The Chicken Chili Blueberries Salad
Serves 1-2 depending on which other courses are served
Take your cold chicken (without skin), and chop it into nice pieces, that you can easily eat
A handful of blueberries
A small green fresh chili, not too strong (you can use jalapeños instead)
A handful of green salad chopped into small pieces
A little onion or a half one, nice with a red one
50-70 ml Basic Mayonnaise
50-70 ml full fat greek yogurt (10%)
Lemon juice, like 2 tbsp
Olive oil, like 2 tbsp
Flake salt and freshly ground pepper
Mix all ingredients together and stir it carefully into a bowl with your chicken, onion, salad and so.
Drizzle chili and blueberries (or watercress and pancetta) on top afterwards.
Served with slices of fried halloumi – get inspired below 🙂
Thin slices of fried (dry) bacon/pancetta (no additives or it will boil on your pan)
IF you have chicken with skin, tear the skin off, and fry it really hard to get it crispy, drizzle on top
Hard boiled eggs
Radicchio (would make a nice contrast)
