- Sophisticated left overs for lazy

After a beautiful late lunch in Sausalito, having an orgy of crab, fish stew and meat, only one idea crossed my mind, crawl to my bed and have a nap…

I decided  that this evening I wouldn’t be able to cook much (because I didn’t have this nap) and because of the left overs we had in the fridge, I could possibly do something nice with little efforts.

Chicken and avocado pâté


  • 1/2 chicken breast
  • 1 avocado
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Lime
  • Olive oil
  • Sand pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves


In a bowl, crush the avocado and add all the ingredients except the chicken, mix well and add the chicken shredded.

You can also add some orange and/or orange juice that goes very well with avocado and chicken.




I also made a sauce that I normally make with duck but it goes well with chicken too.  It’s a sauce my friend Cyril taught me many years ago when I was sneaking in the kitchen where he worked.

Cannot be more simple, you need grain mustard and honey.

I put 2 tsp of each in a sauce pan, leave it to simmer for a few minutes and that’s it, if you like it sweeter just add a bit a honey.



And after that, I am gonna go to bed….
