Chicken, Prosciutto, Mortadella & Artichoke Terrine

"This great dish I originally had in a small South Carolina restaurant and absolutely fell in love it it. We had it for lunch one day and it was totally amazing. With a little help from the waiter, who also worked in the kitchen, he was able to give me a couple of parts I couldn't figure out and after a couple of tries, I came up with what ... I think is pretty close. First off it certainly is not difficult even though it sounds like it, it is NOT quick cooking, that I admit, but it certainly ISN'T expensive and again ... ISN'T hard to do. A loaf layered with chicken, ham, mortadella, salami, artichokes and parmesan cheese. Baked slow in a water bath and then chilled. Sliced and served with a garlic herb aioli for a great lunch or light dinner. I have served this as a dinner course with a bowl of fresh soup to start, and then the terrine served over some fresh baby greens, and roasted vegetables which makes for a great light meal. If you want, this can also be sliced and then cut in half or quarters and served over some greens with the aioli for a light starter. I promise the guests will love it."

  • Chicken -- First thing to do is to pound out the chicken. Place the chicken between plastic wrap and pound until thin.You can use a rolling pin, meat mallet or even the bottom of a heavy pan. Anything will work.
  • The chicken will be used for two layers of the loaf so I try to cut the chicken in 2-3 smaller pieces so the chicken will fit to make the layers.
  • Dipping Station -- Layout out your dipping station -- 1) well beaten eggs in one pie pan or small flat dish; 2) parmesan, seasoned salt, pepper, cayenne, and lemon zest in the other.
  • Pan -- Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, bottom and sides and spray with non-stick spray. I use scissors and cut down the corners of the parchment paper to make it fit easier.
  • Layer 1: Chicken - Dip 1/2 of the chicken in the egg and then in the parmesan mixture and place in the bottom of the loaf pan. Fit the pieces in well and tight so it covers the entire bottom of the pan.
  • Layer 2: Mortadella and Proscuitto - Top the chicken with the mortadella slices and then 1/2 of the proscuitto.
  • Layer 3: Artichokes - Slice the artichokes in 1-3 pieces, depending on the size. Then dip 1/2 of the artichokes in the egg and then in the parmesan and place on top of the mortadella and proscuitto.
  • Layer 4: Fresh basil leaves -- All of the basil leaves.
  • Layer 5: Chicken Again - Same as above. Dip the remaining chicken in the egg and then parmesan and put on top of the artichokes.
  • Layer 6: Salami - Top the chicken with all of the salami and then the remaining proscuitto.
  • Layer 7: Artichokes - Last layer. Once again, dip in the egg and then parmesan and top the salami and proscuitto.
  • All Done -- Cover with a piece of parchment paper and here is the key - it needs to be weighted down. Take a brick and cover it with aluminum foil. That really works best. Place on top of the parchment paper and now you are ready to bake. If you don't have a brick, just open a bag of beans and pour them on a sheet of foil and wrap up. Just something heavy to weigh the terrine down.
  • Bake -- Put the loaf pan in another pan, like a 13x9, filled 1/2 way with warm water. Then bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours on the middle shelf. The water will keep the terrine from getting too brown and let it cook slower. Remove and let cool completely, cover well with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.
  • Aioli -- Mix all the ingredients together. Mayonnaise, lemon, herbs and garlic. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. This can be made ahead of time.
  • Serve -- Remove the plastic wrap and the top parchment paper from the terrine, then put a plate on top and flip over. Remove the parchment paper and then thin slice. You can serve this for a buffet too, it is so pretty to serve. I like to serve the slices over a bed a greens and top with the garlic herb aioli. ENJOY this great unique dish!

"<p>Growing up in Michigan, I spent my summers at my cottage in the Northern part up by Traverscity. On a lake, big garden which had all the vegetables you could imagine. My mom taught school, so summers were our vacation time. Gramps and I fished all the time so fresh fish was always on the menu, perch, blue gill, walleye and small and large mouth bass. At age 5 I learned how to clean my own fish and by 10 I was making dinner, canning vegetables and fruits, making pies and fresh breads. Apples fresh picked every fall, strawberries in June and July, Cherries at the Cherry Festival in Traverscity. So fresh foods always were a big part. Mom worked as a teacher during the year so dinner was more traditional with pot roasts, meatloaf, etc, but it seemed we always had fresh fruits and vegetables as part of the meal. Mom also didn't use as many spices as I do, but times were different back then. <br /> <br />So ... My motto is ... There is NO Right and NO Wrong with cooking. So many people thing they have to follow a recipe. But NO ... a recipe is a method and directions to help and teach someone. Cooking is about personal tastes and flavors. I love garlic ... and another person may not. I like heat ... but you may not. Recipes are building blocks, NOT text ground in stone. Use them to make and build on. Even my recipes I don't follow most times --They are a base. That is what cooking is to me. A base of layer upon layer of flavors. <br /> <br />I still dislike using canned soups or packaged gravies/seasoning ... but I admit, I do use them. I have a few recipes that use them. But I try to strive to teach people to use fresh ingredients, they are first ... so much healthier for you ... and second, in the end less expensive. But we all have our moments including me. <br /> <br />So, lets see ... In the past, I have worked as a hostess, bartender, waitress, then a short order cook, salad girl in the kitchen, sort of assistant chef, head chef, co owner of a restaurant ... now a consultant to a catering company/restaurant, I cater myself and I'm a personal chef for a elderly lady. I work doing data entry during the day, and now and then try to have fun which is not very often due to my job(s). <br /> <br />I have a 21 year old who at times is going on 12, aren't they all. Was married and now single and just trying to enjoy life one day at a time. I'm writing a cookbook ... name is still in the works but it is dedicated to those people who never learned, to cook. Single Moms, Dads, or Just Busy Parents. Those individuals that think you can't make a great dinner for not a lot of money. You can entertain on a budget and I want people to know that gourmet tasting food doesn't have to be from a can of soup or a box, and healthy food doesn't come from a drive through. There are some really good meals that people can make which are healthy and will save money but taste amazing. So I guess that is my current goal. We all take short cuts and I have no problem with that - I do it too. I volunteer and make food for the homeless every couple of months, donating my time and money. I usually make soup for them and many times get donations from a local grocery stores, Sams Club, Walmart etc, with broth, and vegetables. It makes my cost very little and well worth every minute I spend. Like anyone, life is always trying to figure things out and do the best we can and have fun some how along the way.</p>"
