Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + standing
Pretty easy and economical. Will add some herbs next time.
i like the idea grinding your own chicken meat. and that it is made from chicken rather then ground beef. it made a great change to our menue. will make again. a keeper.
I made this meat loaf (minus the mushrooms cause I didn't have any and really do not like them). Tasted great! Served with sweet potatoes and veggie - will definitely make again
We really enjoyed this recipe. I made very little variation to the loaf, itself. I did use 2 lbs. of ground chicken to make things a little easier. For the gravy, I used a floured roux with the chicken broth, wine, thyme instead of rosemary and salt/pepper. I also didn't have fresh mushrooms, so used canned instead. Everything came out great!
I used only chicken breast... as that is what I had on hand. The only complaint I have is that it didn't form a "loaf" very well. Maybe if I would have used some chicken thighs too, like the recipe said, it would have been thicker and formed better. Either way, it was excellent. The flavors are mild, but so very yummy! This is a great family meal. My two year old and 10 month shared in it too. My 10 month old daughter LOOVED it! This was the perfect meal for her because the chicken was ground and the flavors were light for her beginner's palette. I served it with mashed potatoes and there was plenty of gravy to go around for both the chicken loaf and potatoes.I divided the loaf in half and froze the other portion. It looks like it should do well and I'm glad to add another excellent freezer meal to my recipe box.
This recipe is soooooo good! I've recently been unable to stomach regular meat loaf due to the spices, so I made this as an alternative. I like it way more than any meatloaf I've ever made! I especially appreciate that the recipe has you grind your own chicken, instead of buying ground chicken -- I'm not a fan of storebought ground chicken at all! I didn't tweak with this recipe at all for this first time...and I'm glad I didn't! It was perfect!
