Chicken Salad

Hearty and very tasty salad, made with chicken cooked along with vegetables. Made through any meat is in the refrigerator and not consumed. We can prepare it with ready spit roast chicken (even more delicious) or the remaining of a huge turkey, that was left because many ignored its presence and only ate the filling and the accompanying. Thereby changing the texture, flavor and its appearance is consumed easily. Also we can make it with smoked turkey ham, when we do not have much time at our disposal.
Prepared by the previous day and served on the festive table, as though they offered to us as a starter in a delicious meal at the family table years ago and since then we often enjoy it and never have bored.

Excerpt from the introduction:
«Αναρωτιέμαι συχνά που είναι το απόγειο της μαγειρικής. Είναι τα πιο φρέσκα υλικά, οι πιο πολύπλοκες γεύσεις είναι το καθημερινό ή το σπάνιο; Δεν είναι τίποτε απ΄όλα αυτά. Το απόγειο δεν είναι ούτε η κατανάλωση του φαγητού ούτε το μαγείρεμα, αλλά η προσφορά του φαγητού και η συντροφικότητα…»

Ingredients (~10 servings)

  • 1 chicken ~1300g (2.9 lbs)
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 onion (only for boiling)
  • 4 large carrots
  • a little celery (only for boiling, for the aroma)
  • 1-2 boiled eggs for decoration at the end
  • 500g (1.1 lbs) mayonnaise
  • 250g (8.8 oz) greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 150g (5.3 oz) cucumber pickles
  • 5 tbsp ketchup
  • 5 peppercorns, for cooking
  • 1 bay leaf, for cooking
  • salt & pepper
In large saucepan over very much water boil the chicken with vegetables, a little salt, bay and the peppercorns sheet.
If the vegetables cook faster, take them out on a platter and set aside to cool. When the chicken is ready remove from the pan and let it cool to be able to boning.
Dispose the celery, onion, bay leaf and peppercorns.
In cutting surface finely chop to diced potatoes, 3 of the 4 carrots and pickles. Bone well and patiently the chicken in large bowl, cutting it into small pieces and removing the skin and anything superfluous, only keep the lean.
Join all the chopped vegetables and the boned chicken, to a large mixing bowl.


In a separate bowl mix ¾ of mayonnaise, yogurt and ketchup, to become a somewhat pinkish mixture of ingredients and pour the sauce in the pan, where you have the chicken and vegetables. Add salt and pepper and mix carefully with a slotted spoon, to join the ingredients together.
Transfer the chicken salad into a serving bowl or two or deep bowl or cake form, coated with transparent film, which protrudes from the form for easier demoldability. Push slightly with a spoon and lay well the salad surface. Pour spoonfuls of the remaining mayonnaise we keep (the one without ketchup).
With the back of a spoon lay the mayonnaise in all the salad bowl surface.
Garnish with egg slices, carrot or pepper, according to the artistic inspiration of the moment and chopped parsley if you like it.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to mix the flavors.
