Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together ground chicken, cooked rice, beaten egg, and minced garlic. Pat out into bottom and sides of 10 inch (25 cm) pie plate.

  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Take out of oven, drain off any liquid and discard.

Helpful Tip

This is a healthy remake of a 1960’s recipe. Think of it as pizza meatloaf! The meat is spread out in a pie pan so it cooks quickly. The recipe also works with breadcrumbs instead of rice and salsa instead of pasta sauce.
