Cheesy, Italian-Inspired Chicken Meatloaf

Posted by   + Show Post

This chicken meatloaf is not only easy to throw together for a work night meal, it is delicious and kid friendly. In fact, I originally got the recipe from the Weelicious website, which is loaded with toddler friendly foods. I've made a few changes, adding fresh basil since we had a freakish abundance of the stuff this year, as well as adding a little skim milk mozzarella. I usually serve this with a side of a little orzo, frozen mixed veg and butter and call it dinner. The original recipe calls for the meatloaf to be cooked in small muffin tins as bites, if you opt for that you want to cut your cooking time to 20 minutes.


1 lb ground chicken

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 small onion, diced

1 egg

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1 tsp oregano

1 tbsp minced fresh basil

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1/2 shredded skim milk mozzarella

1/2 cup marina sauce

1 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and then push the meat mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan that's been lightly greased with oil. Bake for 50 minutes or so, serve with a dollop of ketchup. This meatloaf is even excellent the next day in a sandwich with a slice of provolone and more marinara sauce.

How do you make meatloaf?
