CEiMB - Lobster, er, Chicken Roll


This week's Craving Ellie in My Belly pick is compliments of Duffy at Lonely Sidecar. She is hands down one of my favorite bloggers. If she hadn't picked this week, I probably would have skipped since I'm allergic to shellfish and I've been down with the flu. But I decided to get creative and see what I could do with this recipe, while staying true to it so it was recognizable (unlike my usual Ellie recipe makeovers).

Just kidding. The closest this comes to Ellie's recipe is that I made a sandwich. A chicken sandwich, with capers and mustard mixed in. Served not on a roll but on a bagel.

It was a really tasty sandwich, until I noticed the texture of the chicken. See, it was left over from making stock, so it had boiled for 4 hours. Why was I surprised that it was mushy?

Sorry Duff, I wiffed on your pick. I wish I could have used lobster instead of mushy chicken. Maybe next time I'll try salmon.

If you'd like to check out the real recipe, you can find it here or here.

Time for a nap.

Hope you're feeling better soon! A lobster roll sounds really good right now, but so does a chicken sandwich....guess I'm just hungry period right now!

I hope you feel better soon! Sorry your sandwich was a let down :( It looks good though.

Well, it certainly looks good. I love chicken salad on a bagel. Are those CA bagels any good?

I love it on a bagel. Too bad it wasn't your thing.

I hope you are feeling better by now. I totally skipped out on the recipe this week. The bagel looks tasty, though.

Oh no! Hope you are feeling better soon. I quite like mushy chicken sandwiches myself.

Hey Leslie, to answer a comment you left on my blog: I have actually tried the Bouchon roast chicken and it is even better than Martha's but I'm so far behind in posting I thought I'd just put them up in order. It really is good, though. Really good.
