How To Cook Apricot Chicken Meatloaf


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F, gas mark 4). Place the ground chicken in a large mixing bowl. To the chicken meat, add breadcrumbs, spring onions, parsley, garlic, curry powder, apricots, chutney, egg, salt and pepper. With your clean hand, mix and knead mixture for 2-3 minutes to combine ingredients well and to give a fine texture.

  2. Grease a 22 x 8 x 5cm loaf tin with oil. Spoon the ground chicken mixinto the tin. Place in the oven and bake for 50-55 minutes. To test if the meatloaf is done, insert a skewer into the center and if clear juice appears it is cooked. If the juice is a pink colour further cooking is required. Rest in the tin 10 minutes before turning out.

The tricky part about a meatloaf recipe is getting the whole lot to stay together when turning it out. Provided that there was enough egg and breadcrumbs for binding, you should be okay and of course practise does help. Be gentle when turning the meatloaf out.
