Total Calories: 1,035


1 broiler-fryer chicken 3 1/2 -pound
2 ribs celery chopped
1 carrot large, chopped
1 onion chopped
2 sprigs parsley fresh
1/2 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon thyme dried, crushed
1 teaspoon tarragon dried, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
4 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
1 egg white
2 tablespoons unflavored jello
1/3 cup water cold
4 eggs hard-cooked, sliced
1/3 cup green olives stuffed, sliced
Salt to taste
1/3 cup green bell pepper thinly sliced, blanched
Lettuce, washed and crisped


Into large pot, place chicken with giblets, celery, carrot, onion, parsley, bay leaf, thyme, tarragon, salt, pepper, chicken stock, and lemon juice bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes skim residue that rises to top. Cover pot loosely and continue to simmer for 1 hour. Cool chicken in broth. Remove chicken skin, bone, and cut meat into very small cubes. Set aside. Strain broth, but do not mash vegetables. Broth should measure 3 cups. Correct seasoning. Heat broth in saucepan and beat in egg white. Whisk and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool without stirring so white forms a crust on surface. Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatin over 1/3 cup water to soften. Line a sieve with 2 layers of cheesecloth or a clean linen dishcloth wrung out in cold water. Gently strain broth through sieve. Combine broth and gelatin in saucepan and bring to boil, stirring to dissolve gelatin. Remove from heat and cool.

Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 -inch loaf pan and pour in 1 cup of chicken broth mixture. Let chill until syrupy. Arrange sliced eggs and green olives in bottom sprinkle lightly with salt. Place in refrigerator to set. When set, arrange chicken and green peppers in layers over eggs and gently pour in remainder of gelatin. Return to refrigerator until firm.

To serve, turn out loaf onto lettuce-lined platter and serve with homemade mayonnaise.
