Chicken and Cheese Baguette with a Mango and Avocado Salad

Chicken and Cheese Baguette with a Mango and Avocado Salad

Posted 2018-02-13 by finyfollow

This was a very easy meal to create and I used leftover cooked chicken that I had in the freezer.

If you do not have any, just boil some for a short time - breast meat is probably best for this, or even buy half a barbecue chicken and strip the meat.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
For the Chicken baguette
1 small [link http://reviewclue.com.au/menissez-bake-at-home-baguettes/ baguette] or half a normal one
1½ tbsp soft butter
About ¾ cup chicken cooked, shredded
1½ tbsp onion, chopped
½ tsp garlic
1 large egg
About 35 g cheese, grated - I used feta as had some left over
Bit of thyme (optional)
For the Mango salad
Baby spinach leaves
1 mango, sliced
1 avocado, sliced
About ½ cup cooked bacon pieces
Caesar salad dressing

Method
For the baguette
  • Bake the baguette if using a bake at home one, and when cool, slice lengthwise.

  • Preheat the oven to 175°/155° fan forced.

  • Scoop out a trough from each half, and soak that bread in milk.

  • Butter the baguette halves.

  • Combine all the other ingredients, including the now soaked bread.


  • Put the mixture into the baguette halves, and press down so that it all fits.


  • Close the halves, and wrap in aluminium foil. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

  • Slice into serving portions when cool enough, and serve either hot or cold.


  • For the salad
  • Mix the spinach, cheese and mango together, adding any juice that is on the cutting board from the mango.


  • Add the avocado and bacon.

  • Put in the fridge till ready to serve, and then add the dressing.


  • I made my own Caesar dressing with lemon juice, garlic, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise and a bit of Parmesan.

  • Serve with the baguette slices for a very delicious meal and/or snack.
