- 6 sheets white Gelatin
- 2 small Shallots (about 50 grams)
- ¾ cup dry White wine
- ¼ cup Tomato juice
- ¼ cup Chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon ground paprika (sweet)
- 1 teaspoon whole Mustard seeds
- 1 Bay leaf
- 5 black Peppercorns
- 2 tablespoons Red wine vinegar
- 1 red Bell pepper (about 200 grams)
- 10 ounces Cooked sliced chicken breast (deli)
- 5 sprigs flat-leaf Parsley
- baby Lettuce (for garnish)
Soak the gelatin in a bowl of cold water until softened. Peel shallots and cut into rings. Combine shallots, white wine, tomato juice, broth, paprika, mustard seeds, bay leaf and peppercorns in a pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add gelatin to pot and stir until dissolved in the hot liquid. Add vinegar. Let steep for 25 minutes. Pass liquid through a sieve into a bowl and allow to cool. Season generously with salt.
Rinse bell pepper, wipe dry, cut into quarters and remove seeds. Place skin side up on a baking sheet. Roast under a hot broiler until blistered and blackened. Place pepper in a bowl, cover with a plate and let stand for 10 minutes. Peel and cut pepper into strips, about .5 cm (approximately 1/8 inch) wide.
Cut chicken into strips, about .5 cm (approximately 1/8 inch) wide. Rinse parsley, shake dry, pluck leaves and finely chop. Mix pepper strips and parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Divide chicken and bell pepper mixture among 4 small ramekins (each about 150 ml) (each approximately 5 ounces). Pour the cooled gelatin mixture into the ramekins and refrigerate until chilled and set, about 6 hours.
Dip the bottom of the ramekins into hot water.
Carefully unmold the ramekins onto plates. Garnish with baby lettuce leaves and serve.
