At Paolo’s Table – Insalata di pollo

Favourite Recipes, Lifestyle

You may be surprised to learn that Paolo is a keen chef; when he is not working wonders with interiors, you’ll most likely find him in the kitchen cooking up a storm. This is one of his favourite recipes; Insalata di pollo / Chicken salad.

You will need (serves 4)

  • 1 Pre-cooked chicken
  • 3 – 4 Little gem salad lettuces
  • Mayonnaise
  • Anchovies
  • Capers
  • 2 – 3 Celery Sticks
  • Italian ciabatta bread


  • Scrape off all of the meat from the bones and chop it all on a wooden board.
  • Chop 2 – 3 celery sticks, some little gem salad lettuces and add to a bowl.
  • Add 1 tin of anchovies in olive oil into the salad including the oil.
  • Add in some capers and lots of good mayonnaise.
  • Add in the chicken pieces and mix well.
  • Season with salt and pepper according to taste and press it into a small bowl.
  • Leave in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • Just before serving, place some gem leaves around a serving dish and turn the bowl from the fridge upside down into the middle.
  • Serve with some nice freshly baked Italian bread.

Paolo’s Tip: I normally make this with some leftover chicken from Saturday night dinner.
