Mock Chicken

No I’m not talking about making fun of chickens! This is a recipe for a sandwich filling that I found in a gorgeous little old recipe book. The book is post-war and talks about rationing still being in place. It’s actually vegetarian but tastes like roast chicken. My kids love it. I won’t lie, it doesn’t look pretty so please excuse the pictures and try it for yourself. The recipe makes enough for four rounds of sandwiches. Enjoy!

Mock Chicken

1 small onion finely diced
1 tomato finely diced
1 egg
1 small handful of grated cheese
Mixed herbs

In a little olive oil gently fry onion and tomato until onion is translucent and a lot of the moisture is gone from the tomato. Add a sprinkle of mixed herbs and a pinch of salt if you want. In a separate bowl whisk egg and then add to pan stirring constantly (think scrambled eggs). When egg is just set turn off heat and add cheese. Stir in until well combined and cheese is melted. Set aside to cool down (will keep in fridge for a day). Spread in sandwiches and enjoy.

About embracingtheimperfections

I am a mother of six children. My children's ages range from 20 down to 1, so we are dealing with a lot of different ages and stages, not to mention a lot of different personalities. One of my twins has cerebral palsy so that adds yet another dimension to our lives. Along my journey so far I have learnt that life is far from perfect and that sometimes it's the imperfections that round out the harsh edges and give it a quality that is precious and unique. My love of the imperfect extends into my home life too. I love all things vintage, hand crafted, home grown and home cooked. I love to be creative and I love learning. I am definitely not a minimalist! I aspire to be tidy and organized but I am realizing that with six children, three cats and a crazy black Labrador that is probably beyond my capabilities, so I embrace the beautiful chaos that ensues!
