chicken leftovers (part one)

In dinner on September 22, 2013 at 9:21 pm

yes yes, chickens have faces, i know. but this one was from whole foods and so happy and patted and hormone-free, she practically had a social security number.

last thursday, he (the man i live with) roasted her (the chicken) to a golden perfection. she was served with tiny potatoes and beautiful thin green beans. plus there was yummy giblet gravy.

two nights later, i was in charge of leftovers (part one). i don’t know what made me do it because i don’t think i’ve ever had one before, but i decided to make a delicious cobb salad.

small-cubed chicken, tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs with blue cheese – apparently there was supposed to be avocado, too? but i didn’t know that – served on a bed of iceberg lettuce with sprouts mixed into it.

i also chopped up and added the leftover potatoes and green beans, and he made fancy bacon crumbles.

mostly, it’s all in the presentation:

the dressing was

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 small clove garlic, microplaned
1/4 teaspoon salt
at least 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

an excellent first use of leftover chicken, but she was a fatty. wait til you see what i do next!
