White Meat Embutido

The month of June is the start of the school year and Embutido is one of the favorite school baons (or maybe your teacher’s tinda?)– eitherway this is one Filipino dish that when done perfectly is absolutely good !

This is the “healthier” version of Filipino Meatloaf– I used ground chicken breast instead of the traditional ground pork.


Embutidong Puti


500 g Chicken Breast (ground)
1/2 c   Carrots (finely chopped)
1 c      Sweet Ham or Vienna Chicken Sausage(chopped)
3 tbsp Green bell pepper (minced)
3 tbsp Red bell pepper (minced)
1/3 c   Sweet pickle relish
1/4 c   Raisins
3 pcs   Eggs (whole)
1/2 c   Cheddar cheese(grated)
1 tbsp Cornstarch
Whole  Boiled eggs
aluminum foil


Prepare a steamer and set aside.

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients (except for the boiled eggs and chicken sausage) and mix until well blended.Divide the mixture into 2 to 4 portions (depending on how many you want to make).

Spread and flatten the mixture onto the center of each foil,Place Boiled eggs at the center of each mixture. Hold the foil onto your hand and roll until the ends of the mixture covers the egg. Roll the aluminum foil into a tightly packed log about 1″ to 2″ in diameter, sealing on both ends. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Place the embutido in a steamer and steam for an hour.

Food Notes :

  1. Let it cool or Refrigerate before serving.
  2. Best eaten with your favourite catsup (Banana or Tomato)
  3. Pan fry until golden brown and make it into a sandwich – use pandesal !
  4. Store in freezer up to 20 days!

    Hi Chef Day! This looks like the BEST embutido that I’ve seen – and am so glad it’s a healthy version… I’ve been trying to eat healthy as well and we all know Filipino food ain’t that healthy.

    Lovely chicken embutido. Still fully as loaded as the classic. Love this as sandwich meat, with extra mayo . Yum!

    I have always made a chicken version. I find I like chicken much more than beef.

  4. Boyet says:

    i always like “embutido’ made from pork but with your post I think i have to try using minced chicken soon…looks so delicious…:)

  5. I’ve never tried using chicken for embutido but I will definitely make some now. This looks great and a heathly version is a plus!

    Interesting! I didnt even know you can make chicken embutido (really shows how ignorant I am!!) That looks awesome!

  13. titaflips says:

    This is awesome! Healthy and so pretty pa!

  14. Nice Embutido!! Embutido reminds me meatloaf which I really want to make. Unfortunately, I live by myself and whole roll can be too much. I love Embutido pan-fried until crispy.

    Yummy Embutido!!! for sure i’ll try your recipe

    Love to try this!!

    Guys?!! Did you try at Charlies? Charlie’s grind and grill is deteriorating in quality and taste because Chef Robby Goco has left the group. Without Chef Robby and his personal touch to Charlie’s Burgers, it will never be the same. Ayaw ko na kumain sa Charlie’s!

  17. Kiezia says:

    I will try to make this, i hope it will be perfectly cook and delicious as your cook.

    Paano pag walang available na pickle relish, is there an alternative? I’m an OFW and pickles na galing India lang nakikita ko sa mga supermarket. I’m planning to make an embutido with ground chicken and beef, okay lang kaya sila pagsamahin? Thanks and more power to your blog!
