How to Make Chicken Meatloaf Wellington with Sun Dried Tomatoes

To make Chicken Meatloaf Wellington with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, start by preheating the oven to 375°F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix together 1 lb of ground chicken, 1 cup breadcrumbs, a lightly beaten egg, 1/2 cup each of grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley, 1/4 cup of finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, a chopped medium onion, 3 minced garlic cloves, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and a quarter teaspoon each of black pepper and optional red pepper flakes. In a skillet with heated olive oil, shape and brown the meatloaf mixture into a log for about 5-7 minutes.

On a floured surface, roll out a sheet of puff pastry to wrap around the meatloaf. Place the browned meatloaf on the pastry, fold, and seal the edges, brushing the surface with a mix of egg yolk and water for a golden finish.

Finally, transfer to the baking sheet and bake until the pastry is golden and the meatloaf is cooked through. Enjoy your flavorful and elegant dish!
