Cranberry and Chicken Salad with Crunchy Potato Bake

Posted 2017-12-08 by finyfollow

A really nice meal for a summer night.

A filling meal, and ingredients marry well together.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 60 minutes
Serves: 3 - 4

Ingredients
For the chicken
About 60 - 85 g dried cranberries
Some lettuce
Some rocket (optional)
Jalapenos (optional)
1 can mandarin
oranges
¼ cup pecans
2 chicken breasts
Bit of balsamic vinegar
Bit of olive oil
80 - 100 g blue cheese, crumbled
For the potato
500 g potatoes, peeled, sliced thin
1 small onion, sliced into thin rings
¼ cup Carnation evaporated milk
1/3 cup skim milk
1 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
Paprika

Method
For the potato
  • Make the potato first as this takes the longest.

  • Preheat the oven to 200°/180° fan forced. Lightly spray a shallow medium size casserole dish with oil spray.

  • Layer the potatoes and onion rings in the dish until they are all used.


  • Mix the sour cream with the milk, and add the evaporated milk, some salt and pepper and mix well.

  • Pour the milk mixture over the potatoes and then sprinkle the breadcrumbs over them.

  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan over these, and then the paprika powder over the breadcrumbs.


  • Bake for about 50 - 60 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through.

  • For the chicken
  • Meanwhile start on the chicken by grilling it either on a barbecue or grilling it for about 8 minutes.


  • Wash the lettuce and cut it up.

  • Mix the pecans, cranberries and jalapenos.


  • Shred the chicken when cool enough, and add it to the pecan mixture.

  • Add the mandarins, lettuce and chicken.


  • Put the blue cheese on top - I bought the wrong cheese - I got Camembert instead of blue cheese and blue cheese would have more taste.

  • Drizzle with some oil and balsamic vinegar and serve with the potatoes.

  • The next day I ate it with my home made noodles which was also delicious.
