G's Warm Chicken Salad


Who remembers G's Restaurant at Caseys Furniture in Cork? Well, we have managed to get our hands on head chef Gina's hugely popular Warm Chicken Salad recipe so we can recreate the taste at home... Enjoy!

G's Cider Dressing

Ingredients

  • 4 dessert spoons of light mayo
  • 3 dessert spoons of cider vinegar
  • 2-3 teaspoons of castor sugar
  • Water if required
Method
Place all ingredients in a jar and give a good shake until it all comes together. If it's too thick, add a small amount of water. There should be a nice tangy taste from the dressing.


G's Chicken Marinade

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1 teaspoon of Chinese 5-spice
  • 2 dessert spoons of soy sauce
  • 2 dessert spoons of sweet chilli sauce
Method
Combine Chinese 5 Spice, soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce. Cut chicken into strips and marinate overnight using a large covered bowl.


G's Potato Wedges

Ingredients

  • 2 medium roaster potatoes (or sweet potatoes)
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
  • Pinch of salt
Method
Cut potatoes into wedges, coat in olive oil, add a pinch of salt and the smoked paprika and mix to ensure everything is fully covered.


G's Warm Chicken Salad

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 16 sundried tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of pesto

Method
  1. Place wedge potatoes in a hot oven at 180C for 45 minutes
