Chicken Mousse Recipe

  • 1 pound chicken breasts, ground in food grinder (approximately 2 1/4 to 3 cups)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Beau Monde seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • white pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, whipped

Mix egg yolks with ground chicken. Cut butter into small pieces and stir into mixture. Add Beau Monde seasoning, tarragon, salt and white pepper. Whip cream and fold into mixture. Pack into mold and place in baking pan with enough water in pan to reach halfway up side of mold.

Bake in preheated 350°F. oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand a few minutes before unmolding.

This dish is especially good if allowed to cool and then refrigerate for several hours. It slices beautifully.

Serves 4 for luncheon dish or 6 to 8 as an appetizer.
