Remove the chicken from the pot and plunge into ice water to cool. (You can reserve the chicken stock for other dishes).

Tuna Mayo

Make a mayonnaise by whisking together egg yolks, crushed garlic, lemon. While whisking, slowly add extra virgin olive oil.

Break up the tuna in the tin and add to the mayo. Season the mayo well.


Cook the potatoes in salted water until tender.

Drain immediately and cut in half. Dress with olive oil, a splash of tarragon vinegar and add the capers. Keep the salad warm.

When the salad is ready to serve, toss the potatoes with parsley and celery leaves.

To serve

Pick the meat from the chicken, discarding the skin.
