Easy Chicken Meatloaf Cupcake Recipe

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and if you are still confused with the menu then in today’s post, I am going to share a simple starter recipe that you can try for a day. If we look at our menu then we definitely have corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda and shepherd’s pie for this day which are the traditional Irish food. Therefore a starter should be a bite-size and should not have beef because we are serving that in the main course.

Still if you want some recipes with beef then go for some easy meatloaf recipes for this day. What I was planning is to keep a chicken recipe in the menu and nothing but a bite size chicken meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potatoes as an icing. Meatloaf recipes are favorite of many people and  if you want to make meatloaf with other meat like turkey bacon etc. feel free to make some. Cupcakes can be made in large quantities at a single time which is apt for any party or event. And if you top them with a favorite mashed potatoes then you don’t have to worry about serving them on plates; they can be a real good finger food for the party.

How to Make a Good and Healthy Chicken Salad?

Chicken salad is one of the recipes which I prefer in my dinner, as its delectable, quick and easy to make and pack full of nutrition. We all know about this saying that eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like pauper. But it doesn’t mean in dinner you have to eat some bland, boring and a tasteless food. It should be light and easy to digest. So make something which is scrumptious but satisfying and easy to digest.

Chicken salad is the best solution to it. It contains vegetables, fruits if you wish, nuts or pine nuts and chicken breasts. We all know chicken breasts are the best source of protein and got less fat contents. Simply mix the cooked chicken pieces with the mix of vegetables and any dressing of your choice, toss well and serve. Mostly people make chicken salads in mayonnaise or in wine vinaigrettes etc. there are plenty of more dressings depends upon the recipe that you can try. In today’s post, I am sharing a recipe called Wholehearted Chicken salad with Honey Mustard Dressing. It also got low-fat Greek yogurt in the dressing. Do you know the best replacement of mayonnaise other than low fat version is yogurt! It’s healthy and fat free which helps in making a guilt free indulgence for us.

I am not claiming that this recipe is the best recipe so far, however it is one the worth trying recipe for sure. Unlike other chicken salad recipes, it is not cold but warm in nature. You don’t have to refrigerate this salad, just make it and consume it. No standby or waiting period, instead of marinating which can be excluded if you have cooked chicken or leftovers. 

Nevertheless, let’s start cooking this wonderful and simple warm chicken salad recipe –
