Jellied Chicken and Peas

March 5, 2021

To serve 4 you will need

2 ⅔ cups chicken stock
¾ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ tablespoons soy sauce
2 sheets of gelatin
¼ lb. chicken (boneless, cooked in the stock)
a pinch of salt
a pinch of monosodium glutamate
5 tablespoons canned green peas

Season the chicken stock with the salt and soy sauce. Soak the gelatin sheets in water. Cut the chicken into bite-size thin strips and sprinkle with the salt and monosodium glutamate. Heat the chicken stock and add the gelatin sheets over a low heat. Simmer until the gelatin is melted. Add the chicken and half the green peas. Arrange the remaining peas in a circle on the bottom of a wet bowl. Pour a little of the soup slowly over the circle of peas. Allow this small amount to set, then pour in the remaining soup mixture. Refrigerate until it is set. Turn out onto a platter and serve.

Note For those who are tending to the negative type, white wine and fresh ginger juice should be substituted for the peas.
