Mediterranean Olive Loaf
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.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Oil or spray a 9 X 5 inch (2 L) loaf pan.
Break eggs into a wide bowl. Whisk in Dijon. Place ground chicken on top and spread out in the bowl as wide as possible. Evenly sprinkle with Parmesan, bread crumbs, olives, peppers, seasonings and green onions.
Using your hands or a large fork, mix together to evenly distribute ingredients. Turn into the loaf pan and press to fill all corners. Smooth the top as best you can.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 1 ¼ hours. Then pour off juices collected in the pan. Let stand 5 minutes, turn out of the pan and slice. Refrigerated the loaf will keep well at least 3 days.
Use whatever olives you fancy or use 1/4 cup (50 mL) very finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil. Just be sure to finely chop and scatter evenly throughout the chicken mixture. In place of basil and oregano, consider using 2 teaspoons (10 mL) herbes de Provence or Italian seasonings.
