About this Recipe

This recipe yields a moist, delicious meatloaf without all the fat and calories of a traditional ground beef loaf. I like to serve it with additional warmed tomato sauce, however, it’s great on its own or thinly sliced for sandwiches too. Best of all, it freezes beautifully.


2 lbs Maple Leaf Prime Naturally Extra Lean Ground Chicken
2 eggs
1/2 cup (125 mL) Italian-style breadcrumbs
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup (125 mL) onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground pepper
1/4 cup (60 mL) shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup (125 mL) tomato or pasta sauce
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese
parsley, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a loaf pan with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, eggs, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.

Place the combined mixture into your prepared loaf pan. Evenly spread pasta sauce on top of the loaf and bake in pre-heated oven for 45 minutes.

Remove meatloaf from oven and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.

Place back in the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
