A savoury terrine is ideal for the summer and makes an ideal light lunch or starter. Elegant or rustic, it suits every type of occasion and can be served at picnics, buffets or anything you can think of! Eat it hot. Eat it cold. Eat it on crusty bread, or like me with a crunchy salad with a fruity dressing. The possibilities are endless!

Chicken, Bacon & Pistachio Terrine


250 g (9 oz) rindless streaky bacon
350 g (12 oz) chicken breast fillets; cut into pieces
250 g (9 oz) lean minced pork
1 Onion; finely chopped
1 garlic clove; crushed
55 g (2 oz) shelled pistachio nuts
1 small egg; beaten
Salt and pepper

Original recipe makes 6 Servings




Preheat oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Stretch bacon rashers with the back of a knife and use to line a 600ml/1 pint loaf tin, overlapping them slightly and leaving the edges overhanging on one side by about 10cm (4 inches). Put half the chicken into a food processor or blender and blend until finely chopped. Scrape into a bowl and stir in the remaining diced chicken, minced pork, onion, garlic, nuts, eggs, and plenty of seasoning. Spoon the mixture into the tin and fold over the overhanging strips of bacon.

Cover with a double thickness of foil. Put the terrine into a small roasting tin and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the side of the tin. Cook in the oven for 1½ hours. Remove the terrine from the roasting tin and leave to cool, then chill until firm.

Turn out and cut into chunky slices.
