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.
Time for a nap.
