Chicken Mince Recipes

Continuing on with my recipes for different things we use in our home, inspired by Gill, who has her ingredients in her sidebar. Chicken mince we did use, but have gone away from it because I shop in a different store now. There is chicken mince available in our town, I am guessing because of the excellent work of the Steggles man. The new recipes at the bottom are great if I have to start using it again. I found them because I got some of the bottled sauces in a Christmas hamper savings club.

Chicken Lasagne

Originally from an Aussie on homesteadblogger. I don't think the recipe is still there. It is beautiful.

500gm chicken mince
1/2 onion
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 jar of bolognese sauce (570g) jar
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 box of instant lasagna sheets
1 tab butter
1/2 teaspoon mustard
dash of black pepper
minced garlic
flour
milk

In lasagna dish layer lasagna sheets mince white sauce repeat and finally put one more layer of lasagna on.

About 5 tabs flour and correct amount of butter or margarine. Start by adding margarine/butter and put in flour until slightly oily and all flour used up. Cook awhile add salt/pepper. Take off heat add milk until most lumps gone and runny. Put back on stove and continue to stir removing lumps if getting too thick add more milk.

Fry onion in oil. Add garlic and mince. After mince is brown add sauce, tomatos and tomato paste. Cook slowly.

In lasagne dish layer lasagna sheets mince, white sauce, repeat and finally put one more layer of lasagna on top with white sauce. Cook for about 30 - 40 minutes on moderate to high heat in oven when lasagne is cooked, take out put grated cheese on top and place back on oven for cheese to melt.

Here is a recipe I got from this site. We used only carrots and made it in one large dish, also it was OK with finely sliced chicken fillets. The sauce really makes it, you can taste the mozzerella.
