Baked Chicken Loaf With Apricots And Spring Onions

Baked Chicken Loaf With Apricots And Spring Onions

Posted 2015-02-19 by finyfollow

This chicken mince loaf has the addition of dried apricots in it.
I was a bit sceptical about how the two ingredients would work together, however the taste was actually unusual and very pleasant.

I could taste the flavour of the dried apricots slightly, and I found it a very interesting taste -also there are a lot of spring onions in this.

I used this brand of [link mango chutney] as it has large pieces of mango in it, which also enhances the flavour of this loaf.

The chicken was very smooth, and in this case I used Panko bread crumbs. It is a loaf that is equally enjoyable hot or cold and works great on sandwiches.

I served it with tomato and rocket salad, as well as chips done in the oven and without oil.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

500 g chicken mince
50 g breadcrumbs (I used Panko)
60 g spring onions, chopped
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
2 tbsp dried apricots
1 tbsp mango chutney
1 small egg
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper


  • If making chips, peel two potatoes and cut them to the shape you want. Microwave them for about 3 minutes at most.

  • Preheat the oven to 180° or 160° fan forced.

  • Chop the dried apricots.
  • Chop them to about this size

  • In a large bowl mixed the chicken mince, breadcrumbs, parsley and spring onions.

  • Add the apricots, chutney, egg, salt and pepper. Mix a bit, and then knead with your fingers until it becomes smooth -about 2 - 3 minutes.

  • Put baking paper in a small loaf tin (about 22 x 6 cm) and put the mince mixture in.

  • Bake in the oven for about 45 - 55 minutes, at the same time putting the chips in on a flat tray lined with baking paper. Spray them lightly with a cooking oil to stop them from sticking to the paper.

  • Leave the loaf in the tin for at least 5 minutes and then lift out with the baking paper. Slice as thin or as thick as you like, and serve.

  • Serve with the chips and I also made a salad.
