Chicken alfajor: from loaded football to culinary novelty

A new classic was born: chicken alfajor. Created by a Cordovan who, tired of worn football, revolutionized the country's palate.


Myriam Díaz is the Cordovan who had the idea that  revolutionized the world of gastronomy . It is about chicken alfajor, and other varieties. The idea came from the worn-out  Cordovan football , which is usually told by Belgrano to  Talleres . The saying says,  “Do you know how they say to you? Chicken alfajor, because you  don't exist .”  So Myriam thought a chicken alfajor would be a good idea. First, to calm the waters between the swollen teams and, second, to innovate in the  classic Cordovan recipes  .

Chicken alfajor only exists in imaginaries as an insult. However, in  the town of   Nono  , where Myriam lives, it is a reality. The main recipe is with chicken stuffing. It has breast, leg and thigh, bay leaf, oregano and green onion. A bomb! The other varieties are kid flavor, beef flavor and a vegan option. We throw you the recipe for you to innovate at home.

 Step by step to make them at home 

 Ingredients for the dough: 

  • 300 g flour 0000
  • 75 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 4-5 tbsp. milk cream
  • Salt and pepper

 Mass in 2 steps: 

  1. Place the flour on the counter, make a hole and place the cold butter. Go grinding it to form a sandblasting. Add the egg, 4 tablespoons of cream, pepper. Join and knead until forming a bun. Wrap in film to take a while to the fridge.

  2. Roll out the dough well floured leaving it about 3 mm. Cut discs of 3 or 4 cm in diameter. Place them on a plate with lard paper and bring them to a hot oven, until dry and  barely  golden. It's  only about 10 minutes  (if they brown a lot the taste will be ruined).

 Ingredients for the filling: 

  • Boiled chicken breast
  • Chopped green olives
  • 2 tbsp. cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • For the edges there are four options: stewed boiled egg yolk, chopped olives, grated cheese or chopped nuts.

 Step-by-step filling:  

  1. Place the chicken and olives in a bowl. Each ingredient is well chopped. Flirt everything with mayonnaise and cream cheese until a paste is formed.
  2. Arm the alfajores. Put them stuffing until it reaches the edges. Pair it and roll it by the selected edge ingredient.
  3. And...  To eat  this new Cordovan classic!
