Welcome to the world of homemade chicken salami! In this article, we’ll guide you through a simple yet delicious recipe to create your very own savory chicken salami without any additives.

2. Gathering Ingredients

To get started, you’ll need:

  • 8 chicken legs
  • 4.5 cups (1 liter) of water
  • 2 pounds (1 kg) of chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 5.5 fluid ounces (160 ml) chicken stock

3. Preparing the Meat

Begin by cleaning the chicken legs, removing the skin and bones. Place the bones and skin in a saucepan with 1 liter of water and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the chicken thighs and breast into smaller pieces. Season them with salt, pepper, crushed garlic, and 160 ml of the broth from the simmering pot. Mix well, cover, and refrigerate overnight or for at least 5-6 hours.

4. Forming and Baking the Salami

Once the meat has marinated, lay out a baking sheet and place half of the meat mixture on it. Roll tightly to form a salami shape. Bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 1 hour.

5. Boiling the Second Salami

Prepare another piece of baking foil and sprinkle paprika in the middle. Add the remaining meat composition and form the second salami. Place it in a pot, cover with water, and boil for 1 hour. After boiling, cool the salami in cold water.

6. Cooling and Slicing

Once cooled, slice your homemade chicken salami into thin, delectable pieces.
