Step aside meatloaf, there's a new star in town... and this one features chicken, bacon, and long eggs!

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Difficulty Level: Moderate


For the chicken terrine:

  • 30 slices of bacon
  • 3 slices of white American cheese
  • ground chicken filling
  • 2 long eggs
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

For the ground chicken filling:

  • 28 oz ground chicken
  • 1 egg yolk, whisked
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup crushed pistachios
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • salt & pepper to taste

For the long eggs:

  • 4 eggs, separated


1. For the long eggs, separate the egg yolks and egg whites. Whisk the egg yolks, divide the mixture between 2 tall shot glasses, place the shot glasses in a pot filled with boiling water, and cook for about 5 minutes or until the egg yolks have set.

2. Once the cooked egg yolks have cooled, remove them from the shot glasses and carefully transfer them to 2 slightly larger drinking glasses. Whisk the egg whites, pour the mixture over the upright egg yolks in the drinking glasses, place the drinking glasses in a pot filled with boiling water, and cook for about 5 minutes or until the egg whites have set.

3. Grease a 10-inch loaf pan and line it with the bacon strips so that they slightly overlap and hang over the edges. Place 3 slices of white American cheese on top of the bacon on the bottom of the loaf pan.

4. Combine the ingredients for the ground chicken filling, spread about ⅓ of the mixture in the loaf pan, and place the 2 long eggs on top.

5. Spread the rest of the ground chicken filling over the long eggs in the loaf pan.

6. Fold the hanging strips of bacon over the top of the ground chicken filling in the loaf pan.

7. Cover the loaf pan with aluminum foil and place in a large roasting pan filled with water. Transfer the roasting pan to a preheated oven and cook at 325°F for 1 hour. Let the chicken terrine cool down and then carefully remove it from the loaf pan and place it on a baking tray. Brush maple syrup over the bacon strips, transfer the baking tray to the oven, and cook at 400°F for 10 minutes until the bacon is caramelized.
