Chicken meat loaf

 

KASHMIRI BARKAKATI NATH whips up a wholesome dish

I am always looking for recipes, which needs me to spend less time in the kitchen and gives great tasting results. I wholeheartedly subscribe to Julia Child’s saying ”you don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients”,  Chicken meatloaf is a wholesome, hearty dish, easy to do and pop into the oven and curl up with a book until its ready.

You can serve with a great salad.
Chicken meatloaf with mushroom:
500gm of ground chicken (I use pinecone chicken mince)
2 medium size onion, chopped fine
200gm button mushroom chopped
2 eggs beaten
1cup fresh bread crumbs
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon  dried parsley (optional)
1 teaspoon  dried rosemary (optional)
 2 tbsp tomato puree
1/2 tsp crushed pepper
1 tbsp olive oil ( regular cooking oil can be used)
4 cloves of garlic chopped fine
Method:
In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients  except the mushroom and onion and mix well.  Put a pan on fire, gently fry the onion with a tablespoon of oil, until just pink and translucent, add the mushroom and fry for a few minutes, until the moisture has evaporated. Add this onion and mushroom mixture to the ground chicken and spice mix. Give it a good stir.
Take a loaf tin. Grease it well with butter, put the chicken mix into the tin and pat it with a spatula.
You can also bake in an oven proof dish.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree for about 45 mins or until the loaf has browned and no longer pink.
Cool for 10 mins and turn on a plate and serve with a salad.
How easy is this and not many dishes to wash up either!
