Mini Chicken & Vegetable Loaves
« on: January 27, 2012, 07:15:14 am »
Name of Recipe:Mini chicken & vegetable loaves
Number of People: Made 26
Ingredients:
small quantity of sweet chilli sauce and/or chutney
120g carrot, cut into 5 cm pieces
190g potato, cut into 5 cm pieces
160g pumpkin, cut into 5cm chunks
130g frozen, canned or fresh corn
45g sachet low salt Chicken Noodle Soup Mix
1 egg
10 chives cut into 5 cm lengths
3 small spring onions or 2 large, cut into 5cm lengths
500g chicken mince
S & P to taste

Spray a 12 hole mini loaf tin or a 24 hole mini muffin tin with oil.
This is optional - place a teaspoon of sweet chilli sauce or chutney into the bottom of each pan or leave plain for children. I make a selection of all options.

Preheat oven to 180C

Chop the carrot 3 sec/speed 5 - place into a large bowl.
Chop the potato 2 sec/speed 5 - add to bowl.
Chop the pumpkin 3 sec/speed 5 - add to bowl.
Add the corn straight into the bowl along with the chicken noodle soup mix.
Beat the egg 5 sec/speed 5 and add to the bowl.
Place chives & spring onions into the bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 7 - add to the bowl.
Add salt & pepper to taste.
Add the mince meat to the other ingredients and using your fingers (no other way works as good) mix all the ingredients together.
Fill the tins to the top, pressing down firmly with a spoon.
Bake for 30 minutes for the loaf tins or 25 minutes for the mini muffin tins.

Tips/Hints:
You can substitute chicken with turkey mince.
You can form them into small finger food patties (makes heaps) or large ones for hamburger buns (makes 10-12).
They taste even better when cold so would be ideal for children's lunch boxes.

Original recipe from a turkey pamphlet many years ago.

Suggestions form other forum members.

McMich-made one big loaf and sprinkled breadcrumbs and cheese on top. Cook for about 70minutes.

Luel-I did add/change somethings which worked very well:  I only had a small packet of cream of chicken soup so used that, I also had some left over basil pesto dip, threw that in, wizzed up a handful of basil and the same of cashews, speed 7, 6 seconds and threw that in with the mix.  This worked great.  They were delish cold served with some baby spinach, capsicum jam, grated cheese and cucumber.

Amy-made the mixture as a slice.

Jai9-Made this for dinner tonight, with a few substitutions based on what was in the fridge, a capsicum and half a bag of spinach instead of the potato and corn. Also added half a block of feta and used onion salt and stock powder instead of the soup mix

Hi Judy. I have made a few batches of these now. My boys love them. I keep them in the freezer and pop a couple in their lunch boxes and they are perfect when they come to eat them. They help keep the lunch cold too.   :)
