Easy Chicken Meatloaf (Throwback Thursdays)


Photo circa 2011

Thanksgiving is almost a week away and I have stocked up on Stove Top stuffing since it's on sale.  I use it to make easy meatloaf all through out the year.  I make this a bit lighter by making this meatloaf with chicken, but you can make with any ground meat you like.   I served it with my Cauliflower/Potato Smash and seasoned green peas to make a balanced meal.

2lbs ground meat (I used chicken)
2 eggs
1 box stuffing mix
1 cup hot water
1 grated small onion
2Tbs of Dijon mustard
1Tbs of grill seasoning (basically consists of garlic powder, salt and pepper) or salt and pepper
2-3 cloves grated garlic (or 2tsp granulated garlic)
Red chili flakes (to taste)
1/4 cup ketchup

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1 Tbs sriracha

Mix all ingredients (except meat and egg) with stuffing mixture and allow stuffing to moisten.

Once the stuffing cooled down, add ground chicken and eggs. 
Mix all the ingredients until well incorporated.

Either free form your loaf or place into loaf pan.  Tip: if you free from your loaf, line baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray foil with cooking spray.  Then put into a 375 degree oven 50-55 minutes. Every oven varies a bit so the cooking time could vary too. If you have a meat thermometer have the internal temp of the middle of the loaf reach 155 degrees.

If you wish to glaze:  30 minutes into the baking add the sauce/glaze on top of the meatloaf.   Then bake for the additional 20 minutes of bake time. 

Serves 6-8 People.  Enjoy.
