This is a great salad recipe, full of flavour, simple to prepare and looks impressive. You can have it as a starter or as a main course, the quantities in this recipe serve 4 as a main course. Choose whatever type of poultry you like – we used small chickens so that we could cut the cooked chicken in half and serve a half chicken per person. If you are serving as a starter you could cut the chicken into 4 pieces and serve 6 people with the quantities. Add the mayonnaise last and just before serving.
The poultry used during the Civil War period, when this recipe was recorded, would likely have been game birds, caught at FincaTorrecillas for the table. Quail and partridges are abundant in the countryside around Murcia at certain times of the year. The Finca also bred their own chickens for eggs and for eating.
