Cooking Orchid Salad with Chicken:
Step 1: prepare the chicken fillet.
Be sure to defrost the chicken fillet at room temperature or take chilled. Boil water in a saucepan, slightly salt it and lower the fillet in boiling water. Boil chicken until cooked.
After cooking, remove the fillet from the pan, let it cool slightly, and then cut into small cubes or hands, if it is more convenient for you, disassemble it into fibers. In any case, you should get small pieces of chicken.
Important: to taste when cooking chicken meat can be pepper or add other suitable spices to it.
Step 2: prepare the eggs.
When cooking chicken in a separate stewpan, you need to boil the eggs. Dip them in cold water, bring everything to a boil, and then cook 12-15 minutes. Dip boiled eggs in a bowl of ice water and hold there until completely cooled. Then they need to be cleaned and crushed using a medium-sized grater.
Important: Before you rub the eggs, separate the yolks from the proteins.
Step 3: prepare fresh cucumbers.
Wash the cucumbers, check if the skin is bitter (otherwise it will need to be cut), and then grate the vegetables on a coarse grater.
To make the salad less wet, squeeze the grated cucumbers with your hands.
Step 4: prepare the carrots.
Rinse the carrots thoroughly, peel them, rinse them again with water, and then chop them using a fine grater.
Step 5: prepare the cheese.
Suluguni cheese also needs to be grated.
Step 6: collect and decorate the salad.
Lay the salad in layers, so take a beautiful flat plate.
Put the grated carrots in the first layer, add a little salt and grease well with mayonnaise (approximately one tablespoon of mayonnaise takes for each layer). The second layer is cucumber, salt, grease. Crush 100 grams of potato chips in your hands and sprinkle cucumbers on them. Then boiled chicken, salt, mayonnaise. Grated cheese, mayonnaise. And the last layer is the squirrel of boiled eggs. Slightly salt them on top and coat well with mayonnaise.
And now the most interesting is salad dressing. Take the chips and place them on top, like flower petals. Pour the egg yolks into the middle of each flower, and spread the parsley around, like twigs. That's all! Now this beauty is only left to the table.
Step 7: serve the salad.
Salad "Orchid" with chicken not only has a wonderful, very delicate taste, but also decorates your table, fully justifying its name.
Enjoy your meal!
- Instead of boiling chicken, you can also bake it or fry in a grill pan. Then the salad will have a more interesting flavor.
- It’s best to take chips with the taste of sour cream, onion, cheese or just salt to make this salad.
- If you do not want to bother with separating egg yolks from proteins, the core of the flowers can also be made from crushed chips.
