Everybody knows chicory salad, but chicory is nice as a vegetable, too. In particular if you cook it in the oven in a creamy sauce. I usually halve the chicken and chicory (when I just cook it for myself or for two), but not the sauce. I like a lot of sauce. My favourite side dish to this is mashed potatoes with chives or scallions. Just make some mashed potatoes and fold in some finely chopped chives or scallions. The plate will look a little bit pale, though... This dish is NOT suitable for freezing. Recipe source: 'Good Food' magazine February 2005.
