Chicken Salami…..Home Style

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 20180725_100818edtwtr.jpg

 

This is one thing which is used  extensively in  my family. Be it  in breakfast or in evening snack, specially  In sandwiches, pizzas or even in burgers. Market bought products are fine in texture looks tempting but as we all know they contain preservatives…which makes it unhealthy.  I decided to give it a try at home. Surfed the net and found few recipes. So here comes my 1st trial product. Its not that fine in texture as market bought but delicious and satisfying. I know the freshness of the   ingredients  I have used to make this. I am sure in my next trial it will be finer in texture too. Practice makes the man/women perfect. Since it was my 1st trial I made it in small quantity.

Ingredients:

Method:

Mince the chicken in a meat grinder. Take out and beat it again to make a no grain fine mince. Put back in grinder along with the spices and egg, except lemon grass. Grind it so that the spices are mixed well.

Transfer to  the kitchen top. Now roll the minced chicken to form a log.

Take silver long foil then fold it from the middle. Brush it with very little oil to grease it so that the chicken does not stick to it.

Now place the chicken log in the middle of the foil and roll it to with the foil.

Now twist both the ends so that those are locked properly.

Lemon grass is course. It cannot get minced with chicken. So beat it and put it over the rolled chicken. So that while steaming the flavor of the lemon grass is infused in the chicken.   

Now keep these in fridge for ½ hr.

Take a deep pan and boil enough water . Now put these packets in this boiling water. These packets should submerge in water. Put on the lid and let it cook for 30 mins. In medium heat. Change the side in once or twice in between.  

Take off from fire and keep it covered till it cools down to room temperature.

Now take the pkts out from water and keep it in strainer so that the extra water is rinsed. If any water has gone inside the folds , let it come out.

From the flavor you will know that it has been cooked. Do not open. Now refrigerate it for at for an hr.

  3. I’d try it with chicken thighs. They have more fat so the end result should be juicier.

    1. I tried it once more adding one egg. The texture was better. You can try with that. Yes thighs may work better.
