{ INGREDIENTS }

POACHED CHICKEN

1 whole chicken

1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns

1 stalk celery, roughly chopped

1 onion, roughly chopped

1 carrot, roughly chopped

2 bay leaves

1 sprig rosemary

 

HENLEY’S “SOUR CREAM”

165ml can coconut milk

3 teaspoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

 

FILLING

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley leaves

3 spring onions, finely chopped

1/3 cup slivered almonds, roasted and roughly chopped

Sea salt and ground black pepper

12 slices Helga’s Gluten Free Wholemeal bread

 

GARNISH

1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced

Torn parsley leaves

{ METHOD }

Place can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight to chill.

Place chicken, peppercorns, celery, onion, carrot, bay leaves and rosemary in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer gently for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside for 30 minutes to cool.

Remove chicken from bones and skin, then shred meat with 2 forks.

Carefully turn the can of chilled coconut milk upside down, then use a can opener to remove the bottom of the can. Drain off the liquid and scrape the thick coconut cream into a bowl. You should have about 1/3 cup coconut cream.

Add the lemon juice, vinegar and sea salt. Stir until smooth. Combine 2 cups chicken, Henley’s “sour cream”, parsley, spring onions and slivered almonds into large bowl, and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

Evenly spread filling over 6 of the bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices and press down gently. Cut each sandwich into 4 squares. Top each square with a slice of cucumber and garnish with parsley.

Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
