Recipes

With chicken breast and croutons

Ingredients:

  • 900 gr. Chinese cabbage.
  • 400 gr. smoked chicken.
  • 250 g cheese.
  • 1 loaf of white bread
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  • 2 cloves of garlic.
  • Mayonnaise - to taste (are there Chinese cabbage salads without mayonnaise?).
  • Ground black pepper, salt and other spices to taste.

Cooking method:

  1. Cut the bread into cubes about 1.5 - 2 cm in size. Put the slices of bread on a baking sheet and place in the oven, preheated to 200 degrees, for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Pour 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil into a separate container and squeeze out one clove of garlic. When all the croutons are baked until golden brown, transfer them to a container and cover with garlic oil. After that, re-send the crackers to the oven for 5 minutes until fully cooked.
  3. Next, let's start preparing the salad itself. Cut off the base from Chinese cabbage, and disassemble the head of cabbage into leaves. Cut a dense stump from each leaf, and then finely chop the cabbage.
  4. Cut off all excess from the smoked chicken: the remaining bones, veins, excess fat and skin. Then cut the chicken and cheese into small cubes and send to the cabbage.
  5. Squeeze one clove of garlic into 4-5 tablespoons of mayonnaise, mix everything well and let it brew for a few minutes. Before serving, season the salad with the sauce and season with ground black pepper to taste.

It is better to mix crackers with the bulk strictly before serving, otherwise they will become very soft and lose their piquant taste.
