Chicken-Macadamia Pate with Basil
2 poached, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise
1 medium onion, diced
1 Tbsp minced garlic
3 to 4 Tbsp fresh minced basil
Cut up chicken breasts, place in food processor. Add nuts; pulse
until assimilated. Add mayonnaise (more if you want it less firm,
as a spread). Blend in onion, garlic, and basil. Add salt, pepper,
and a bit of dill to taste. I've actually never put dill in and
don't think I've missed it, but I sometimes go for extra basil.
Chill for at least an hour.
Good on crackers or in tomato shells.
