Hello everybody, yesterday I did a recipe that I haven’t done for years: Chicken Meatloaf. In the past I’ve done this recipe with ground beef just because my husband and son like it, but this time I decided to do my daughter a favor and use ground chicken. It turned out very moist and extremely flavorful. The ingredients:
500 g of ground chicken
1/3 cup green onions (chopped)
1/3 cup cilantro (chopped)
1/3 cup Kalamata olives (chopped)
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp Dijon mustard
6 cream crackers crumbled
Splash of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Bread crumbs (to sprinkle on the top of the meatloaf)
Preheat the oven at 350 F. Put all the ingredients (not the bread crumbs) in a bowl and mix with your hands until everything is combined. Put the mixture in a baking dish making an oval shape and making sure everything is the same height to promote even cooking. It is optional to sprinkle a bit of bread crumbs and drizzle some olive oil on the top of the loaf. Put it in the oven for half an hour. If the meatloaf is a bit pale when its time to take it out, add 2 to 3 minutes on the broiler. And that’s it. Just serve and enjoy!!

This is a salad that my mom used to make. It’s great for a summer weekend’s lunch and also to send in the kids lunch boxes. Very simple and quick to prepare, which makes it a winner!!! Start boiling a chicken breast with the spices that your kids enjoy. I just add salt, pepper, dried thyme and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. When it’s done, let the chicken cool down. While you wait, shred two or three carrots in a bowl, add one cup of corn and half a cup of pitted olives. They can be black or green. I usually cut them in half just to make sure there are no pits left. When the chicken is cold, I shred it or cut in small pieces and add to the bowl. Now we just have to season with salt, olive oil and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Toss everything together and serve it with shoestring potatoes. That’s how we traditionally eat this salad, but you can omit the fries to make it lighter.

Last Friday I did something that most people will find very unusual… Some time ago, my husband suggested a recipe in which I should put all the components of a meal in a quiche. It didn’t sound good to me, but he thinks that food should be practical, and thought it could be a good idea. So, I finally decided to give it a try. In a bowl I mixed 2 grilled chicken tenderloins in small dices, 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice, 4 broccoli florets thinly sliced, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 3 eggs, and salt (to taste). Then filled some greased muffin molds (3/4) and baked them around 20 min in a 350F preheated oven. My kids liked it and my husband, of course, loved it!!!!!!!!
