Chicken Pate - Pasztet Drobiowy - Recipe #88

It is a little bit like a chicken pie but we serve it cold. It goes perfectly with fresh bread and some pickles! Something new to try! I hope you will enjoy! 

Ingredients:

  • 800 g of chicken legs
  • 200 g of chicken liver
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • carrot, celery, parsley
  • all spice
  • few dried mushrooms
  • few peppercorns
  • bay leaf
  • 1 stale dinner roll
  • garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • nutmeg
  • 1 tsp of marjoram
  • sliced almonds for decoration

Instructions:

  1. In a large pot cook together your chicken, carrot, parsley, celery, half a onion, dried mushrooms, all spice, peppercorns, bay leaf and teaspoon of salt until the meat comes of the bones easily (around one hour).
  2. Chop the remaining half of the onion and fry on 2 tbs of oil until soft and glossy. Add washed chicken liver and cook for around 5 minutes until cooked through
  3. Drain your chicken and vegetables saving the stock. When your chicken cooled down a little bit, take the meet off the bones.
