The poached chicken recipe I blogged about yesterday wasn’t that special. Not exactly bad. Quite nice, but lacking in flavour; neither Sam nor I were impressed by the cooked cucumbers.
However, the chicken salad is very good, and I’ll definitely make it again.
If you’re planning to cook the two recipes, I can give you one piece of advice. Joint the chicken into breast and leg quarters and put the legs aside for the salad. In this way, you’ll have the skin intact for the next day.
