    If you were making a smoked chicken salad, what would you put in it and what kind of dressing would you use?

    Romaine lettuce, red onion, a mustardy vinagrette? Robust, but not to overpower the smoked chicken flavour. Less would be more, I would think?

    Yep, I think definitely a mustardy vinagrette, and maybe some walnuts. Possibly some fruit, like apple or grape?

    I would no sooner put fruit in my chicken salad than chicken in my fruit salad, but whatever rocks your boat! :)

    Perhaps some roasted red pepper would work well?

    Ha, I came into this thread to recommend roasted red pepper, too!

    Perhaps some nice avocado, too?

    Did you end up making something or was it just ideas?

    I made jerk chicken on the bbq a couple of weeks ago, offset cooked it with bay and thyme, had it with rice and peas.

    Next day i had some of the left over chicken with a Caesar-ish salad, one with mayonnaise instead of eggs, it was beautiful.

    Where is good to get smoked chicken?

    I got some from Skeaghanore before, but did not like it. It was pink inside, and boney, so I tried to cook it a bit on the pan. Maybe I shouldn't have? Anyway, very little smoky flavour, and not great chicken (I didn't like the texture). It was €4.70 for 200g.

    In the end, the weather was so unpleasant on the day that I was using it that I made a pasta dish instead. I'll revisit the salad idea when the storms abate!

    I got the Skeaghanore one and agree that it was quite pink close to the bone. I think you can get some in the English Market but I can't remember which stall exactly.

    Actually, @igCorcaigh , my idea to use it in a salad came from a delicious salad that I got in Rebecca's Kitchen in Kilbrittain. I think she sells smoked chicken in there too, but I can't remember the specifics. It's also a bit far out and closed until March 22nd but if you're ever in the area, you could pop in there and see what she uses.

    Oh, I had never heard of Rebecca's Kitchen @Faith, but I must absolutely check it out. I went with my mum to the Pavilion in Ballygarvan a couple of weeks ago, and we loved it. Will definitely suggest a visit to there.

    I remember many years back in the Ivory Tower, Cork (RIP) getting smoked chicken, stuffed inside a huge red chilli, which was tempura battered. Delicious!

    It's a gorgeous little spot. Highly recommend a visit in the summer and sit outside to enjoy the area, or pick up a few things for a beach picnic somewhere nearby like Harbour View.
