Embutido is a type of Filipino steamed meatloaf. Today, we are featuring Chicken Embutido, which is a meatloaf made from ground chicken. This recipe is simple and hassle-free. You should be able to enjoy your own chicken embutido within an hour – and you will have the right to brag this to your friends too.
This chicken embutido recipe is similar to our original embutido recipe, although the latter used ground pork. This chicken version is also straightforward; we will not be using boiled eggs or hotdogs to stuff our embutido. The video below demonstrates the detailed procedures.
I actually loved the outcome of this recipe. I was able to enjoy chicken embutido in its cold state, and I also what I tasted when I tried to fry it. It went well with steamed rice and with bread too. Since this recipe will give you around 10 to 12 pieces, you can freeze the leftover and cook it when needed. I usually have a space in my freezer for frozen tocino and longganisa. I also had the embutido sit there. Its always good to know that you can always pull ready-to-cook food when you are in a hurry or just too lazy to cook.
