Ingredients (for 6 people)

  • 700gr chicken sausage meat
  • 1 chicken breast cut into 3 long strips
  • 12 thin strips of bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yolk
  • 2 dessert spoons of pesto sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Cover the base of our Le Creuset terrine with parchment paper and line the inside with the bacon slices, leaving them protruding at least 2-3 centimeters. We booked.
  3. We put the sausage meat, the egg, the yolk and the tablespoons of pesto in the food chopper and we make it work until everything has been unified. Season with salt and pepper (there is a good amount of meat, be generous so that it is not bland).
  4. Pour the mixture into the terrine, interspersing the previously seasoned chicken strips. Press and close the terrine with the projection of the bacon strips. We place the ceramic weight of the terrine on the bacon -this step is necessary so that the bacon does not curl in the heat of baking-.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes in a bain-marie. To do this, place the terrine in a rectangular Le Creuset tray and cover halfway with boiling water.
  6. Once the baking time has elapsed, remove from the oven and very carefully remove any excess fat that the bacon may have released.
  7. Let cool and cover the terrine with plastic wrap. Let stand 8 hours in the fridge.
  8. After the resting time, we remove it from the fridge and we can cut it as we like to taste it. If it is to accompany it with a salad, cut into thick slices it is great; if it is for an appetizer, a sandwich or a snack, you can do it in thinner slices or even in small cubes.

Deliciosa!!! Tanto fría como caliente (las lonchas vuelta y vuelta en la sartén). Le añadí un poco de queso parmesano encima de la capa de pechuga y no ha quedado ni la muestra.
Y facilísima. Os animo a que la probéis.
Muchas gracias por compartir estas recetas tan “apañadas”.

Hola! Esta receta se podrá hacer moliendo pollo, la carne oscura por ejemplo? Eso de utilizar salchichas no me gusta.
