Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf

Not too long ago, I received What's Cookin', Chicago? for a recipe swap.  We could choose whatever we wanted for the swap, which sometimes makes it super challenging for me because I find a lot of things I'd like to make.  Joelen has been blogging since 2007, so about 4 years longer than me, so she has a ton of amazing sounding things. I've had quite the list of things to make from her blog, and this is one of the ones I made first.

Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf
slightly adapted from What's Cookin', Chicago?
1 lb ground chicken or turkey
1 egg
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Italian Cheese Blend
1 dash of white wine
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Parsley for garnish

1) Combine all the ingredients, except for the tomato sauce, in a large bowl.  Mix to combine, but don't overmix or it will become tough.
2) Put mixture into a greased loaf pan and top with sauce.
3) Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

I love meatloaf.  It has been one of my favorite dishes since I was a kid.  I have to say that this might now be my favorite meatloaf.  It was so easy to put together, and the flavors in it are amazing.  Jacob gobbled it up and there were no leftovers after lunch the next day.  We'll definitely keep this on the list of things to make again.  


  1. I love this recipe, too. Joelen has so many great ones!

  2. Thanks for linking this in to Food on Friday: Meatloaf. Have a great week.
