Curry Chicken Loaf

Winter is the time for comfort food, amiright? There’s nothing like it on a cold night. I am still trying to not eat beef though and cut back on the really decadent comfort foods. That’s where this lovely curry chicken loaf comes into play. It has so much flavor and a wonderful, tender texture but is still a lot leaner than the traditional comfort food classic. Best of all, it was so easy to put together!

The mixture for the curry chicken loaf was really simple. I used Greek yogurt to keep it from drying out, Dijon for a deeper flavor, and breadcrumbs and eggs to keep it held together. All of those ingredients really enhanced both the ground chicken and the curry powder I used. Onion and cilantro gave it some extra aromatic goodness too!
Once I formed that mixture into a loaf shape on my sheet tray, I slathered the top in a mixture of even more Greek yogurt, curry powder and some lemon zest to brighten everything up. That was all there was to forming this baby, it just had to bake!
When it came out of the oven, that topping had baked into the curry chicken loaf a little and kept it so tender and flavorful. It took about 50 minutes for it to cook to perfection. I let it rest for a couple of minutes before I sliced it.

Oh my goodness, it was everything I wanted in comfort food without all of the guilt. I love the combination of curry with chicken so much and this time was no different. With our favorite sides, it was a fantastic winter meal. Hope you all love it too! xoxo

    This is such an awesome recipe and I can truly say I’ve never made anything like it. I use curry a lot but not in a loaf like this. Can’t wait to give it a try!
