Elaine: Orange-Lemon Ice Cream

Without an ice cream maker, I definitely think this recipe would be perfect to pour into popsicle molds. I put the ice cream mixture into a bowl and stirred the contents 2 x every 1.5 hours. I think it needed a couple more stirs. The consistency without the ice cream maker was that of an icee. You could feel the ice crystals in each spoonful. I'm sure with an ice cream maker it would be a lot smoother. The flavoring totally hit the spot....not too creamy...not too tart...not too sweet. Kate, I had Heather, Luke and the kids over for lunch today. I served the Bill Granger Open-faced Chicken Sandwich, his potato lemon salad and ended it with this creamsicley icee which the kids loved on this hot afternoon. A great recipe. I'm definitely going to make this again.

Open-faced Chicken Sandwiches - Bill Granger
7 oz skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 T. olive oil
sea salt
ground pepper
1/2 c mayo
1T lime juice
4 scallions finely sliced
2 T parsley
finely grated zest of 1 lime
4 slices of brown bread
1 cucumber peeled into ribbons
1/2 c. cilantro leaves

Preheat oven at 425
Brush chicken with olive oil. roast for 10-12 min. Remove from oven, cover with foil and rest for 15 min. Slice lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices.
Combine mayo, lime juice, salt and pepper, scallions, parsley and sezt into bowl.
Spread bread with mayo mixtures. Top with chicken, cucumber and cilantro.

Glad you liked--I think maybe even with an ice cream maker this would be on the crystal-y side. That's how my mom's always tasted anyway. Technically it might be more of a sherbert than an ice cream. Your menu sounded so nice! I really want to make those chicken sandwiches--what's the lemon potato salad?

Lemon icee in the summer ... sounds like the perfect base for a margarita! Looking forward to trying this.

the only thing i wished to try was with an ice cream maker to see if it would make a difference in texture but i love it. its perfect for the summer because you don't even need to use the stove top. I did use superfine sugar for the sugar to desolve easier in the cold mixture. I'm definitely going to make them one more time this summer in popsicle form. really great recipe though. don't know how dairy would be in a margarita. but then again, i'm not the biggest drinker.
