Yesterday evening I had no inspiration for dinner. .I though and tough, opening my pantry and fridge searching for inspiration, until I opened the freezer and saw two chicken breast.
As the evening was a warm sprig evening, I find a good idea make something cold as a salad, but I only had a small plant of icing lettuce and a canned red sweet pepper. So, I started to think again. Until, my brain was illuminated, and started to works. And, I thought, if I made a chicken roll with a Swiss roll?
It is a good idea, isn’t it? And yes, in fact is a great idea. I used only things that I had in my fridge and pantry including some leftovers. The result was fresh and delicate with a subtle contrast between salted and sweet
For The roll
- 3 eggs
110 grams( 3½ oz) of castor sugar 75 grams( 2½ oz) of flour
- 2 or 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
Preheat the oven to
Bake for 8 or 10 minutes. Check the sponge is cooked by carefully running your hand over the top. It is cooked if your hand leaves a slight mark, which disappears quickly and springs back. Turn out immediately onto a cake rack covered with a clean dry tea towel. Peel off the cooking paper and allow cooling. Spread the sponge lightly with mayonnaise. Cover with ice lettuce and put the chicken concoction over them. At last put slices of sweet red pepper. Roll into a tight spiral with the aid of the tea towel, starting from the longer side. Remove the towel and leave rest into the fridge.
Meanwhile the sponge is baking, make the filling
