Step by step recipe with photo
"Olivier" with chicken and pickled cucumber is just as tasty and relevant on New Year's holidays as its analogue created with milk sausage. Moreover, this option will turn out to be more delicate in taste.
I recommend boiling chicken fillets, carrots, potatoes and chicken eggs separately in advance and immediately cooling them in ice water, since already cooled ingredients are always added to salads, because hot ones reduce the shelf life of the dish to several hours.
Many chefs exclude carrots from the list of ingredients, but I add them to make the dish more colorful and bright - the chicken fillet is completely colorless.
Buy mayonnaise to your liking, but without fragrances, for example - not garlic and not sour, so that it does not interrupt the taste of the salad with its aroma.
So, purchase, boil, and cool the ingredients you need and let's start cooking!
Peel the chilled boiled carrots and potatoes, cut into plates, and the plates into cubes, but not small, so that the dish does not become puree when stirring. Pour the slices into a deep container.
Open the jar of canned green peas, drain the marinade and place some of the canned peas in a bowl.
Cut the chilled boiled chicken fillet into medium cubes, add to the container.
For example, cut pickled or pickled cucumbers into the same cubes, but do not immediately add to other cuts, but give about 10 minutes to drain the brine from the cubes. Otherwise, the salad may float.
Peel the chilled boiled chicken eggs from the shell and be sure to rinse in water, cut in the same way and add to the container.
Add mayonnaise, lightly salt and pepper. Remember that the dish already contains pickles! Mix gently.
Olivier salad with chicken and pickled cucumber is ready. Put the prepared dish in bowls or bowls, serve immediately after cooking or chilled.
