Chicken and rice stuffed vegetables recipe

In an effort to introduce some more exciting meals to our dinner table we have been playing around with some old classics. One that I used to love when I was younger is the stuffed vegetable; a nice wide variety can be used which makes it easy to alter. I usually use regular beef mince to make the stuffing mixture however I have decided to create a healthier option and use Steggles chicken mince instead. This is because it is a lean source of protein, has the heart tick of approval and is made from nothing but a blend of chicken breast and thigh. Below is my recipe for stuffed vegetables; tomato and capsicum specific but it can be easily adjusted to suit you personal taste.

Chicken and Rice Stuffed Vegetables

Chicken and rice stuffed vegetables


500g Steggles chicken mince
1x cup cooked rice
1x onion (diced)
4x bacon rashers (sliced)
1x tbs garlic
1x tbs mixed herbs
salt and pepper
Vegetables of choice – (I used 12x tomatoes and 5x capsicum)
Fetta (Persian is my favourite)
200g tomato paste


1. Preheat oven to 180°c.
2. Heat up small amount of oil in pan and fry chicken mince, onion, bacon and garlic over medium heat.
3. Slice tops off tomatoes and empty all juices and seeds into mince mix (so there is minimum wastage).
4. Add rice and season vegetables and mince mix. (If using tomatoes add a teaspoon of sugar to mix so they don’t go bitter).
5. Fill vegetables with mix and top with crumbled fetta.
6. Bake in oven for approx 30-40 minutes.

Left over mince mix can be made into pie or pastry parcels.

    We love chicken in our house, but the best meals are the ones that my husband cooks, doesn’t matter what he cooks, as long as I don’t have too. He makes a very good chicken chow mein!!!

    Porcupine meatballs. Use the same recipe as we do for beef mince, just substitute chicken mince for the beef. It’s easy to add grated veggies, but not celery, it just overtakes the chicken flavour. Grated zucchini added to the mince is lovely. Have also thought of swapping the tomato soup to cream of mushroom, or cream of asparagus, to see how that goes, but so far just stayed with what I know works.

    Porcupine meatballs. We replace the beef mince with chicken mince. Grated veggies are also nice to add. Just be careful if adding celery to the mince mixture, it can take over the chicken flavour completely. I’ve thought it might be worth substituting the tomato soup, with either cream of mushroom, or cream of asparagus, but for now, we’ve stuck with what we know works.
    We actually make extra on purpose, and then in a smallish glass lock and lock, cut up the meat balls and gravy into the container, and put a piece of puff pastry on top, and freeze like that. Apply an egg wash to the pastry before the pies go in the oven. They really are nice..

    Chicken rissoles/meatballs! It’s a great way to add in extra veggies that the kids don’t notice. Add some mixed herbs and garlic and it tastes delicious. Can be served a number of different ways too.

    Thai chicken burgers, you can make them deliciously spicy, and they’re so moist and you can eat them as rissoles or on a roll.

    Yum! I love chicken mince!
    It is so underrated
    Burgers, sliders, or roll into balls
    Simmer in sauce and pasta is plated
    The options are many
    Just need to take a pick
    Affordable to feed the family
    Gives a new meaning to HOT CHICK!

    Your recipe sounds really great! I hadn’t thought to use chicken mince to stuff vegetables before! Chicken mince is so versatile , I think my favourite thing to make that the kids really enjoy would be simple, homemade chicken rissoles packed with hidden veggies. Sometimes I’ll crumb them in cornflake crumbs or even crushed macadamia nuts for something a little different… They love them!

    Chicken tacos, tacos are a HUGE hit in our house and I like to change it up every now and then by swapping the beef mince for chicken. Cooking the chicken mince then mixing through some yummy taco seasoning and a little tomato sauce then putting a couple spoonfulls in jumbo soft tortillas then topping with lettuce and tomato plus sometimes onion, capsicum etc and some delicious salsa sauce on top.

    I brown chicken mince in fry pan,add onion ,mushroom chopped small and some chicken stock for flavor. when browned remove from heat ,drain excess oils or fats . now stir a little bit at a time, the contents of your favorite soup, and maybe some boiled vegies cut into small pieces. mix it all together to make a pasty filling or pie filling.
