DBlogWeek - Something good to eat wildcard

Today is wildcard time for me! I'd like to share with you a recipe I cooked for my last birthday party. As I supposed beforehand some of the guests loved it, while others stated it to be not their cup of tea. But as it is very low carb, prepared within 20 minutes and can be done by anyone no matter how small the cooking skills, I thought it's the right recipe to share with you! (I loved it, too.)
It's actually a traditional medieval dish, from the 14th century. I got it from here, made just small modifications and take the freedom to translate it for you.

Blanc manger - for 4 servings

You will need:
600 gr chicken breast
300 gr peeled and grounded almonds
30 gr butter
30 gr rice flour (you can ground rice e.g. with a coffee mill)
100ml dry white wine (or to taste)
artificial sweetener, equivalent to 60-75 gr of sugar
dash of salt

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and cook them in boiling water for 10-15 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare a mush from the almonds, 900 ml water and the white wine. Puree it with a blender. (You can substitute more from the water with wine, if you like, but I wouldn't recommend more than 300 ml of wine, the taste gets quite intrusive then.)
Strain the chicken, then add almond mush and butter. Bring it to a boil, than add the rice flour to thicken it.
Add the artificial sweetener and a dash of salt (not more!).

If you haven't realized it yet: This is a sweet dish with chicken - a little unusual - and it is not the french pudding. You can see it in the large pot in the front, surrounded by a lot of other medieval dishes! It looks more liquid in the pic than it actually is, though. Enjoy!
