Mini Chicken Meatloaves!

I was flipping through some recipes I had saved and saw one that sounded really good! Of course, I couldn’t just leave it like it was, soooo I Ariana’itzed it! 🙂
First off, I didn’t have any ground turkey or chicken (if you want lean ground turkey or chicken, you have to pay an arm and a leg for it, so I never buy it. ) Instead I make my own.
How to make ground chicken or turkey in three easy steps:
First off, I used chicken breast that I half-defrosted and then cut into chunks.

2. Then I pureed it into
ground turkey in my food processor.

3. Put it all together. In the end, I ended up with about two cups of ground turkey. (I tried to
weigh it but my scale wasn’t working.) Use it for this recipe or freeze for later use :).

Sorry if those pics are kind of unappetizing but it is so worth it in the end 🙂

The finished product, well, before cooking 🙂
Mini Chicken Meatloaves!
Yield: 1 Dozen Mini “Muffin” Size Meatloaves 🙂

3 large chicken breasts (pureed into ground turkey)

1/2 c. chopped carrot (sneak some good veggies in there- your kids won’t even notice)
1/2 c. breadcrumbs (I used GF ones I saved from my bread every time crumbs fall off and then put it in the freezer for future use)
1/2 c. sugar-free ketchup + (see my sugar-free recipe on that link :))
1 egg
1 t. marjoram
1 t. salt
sprinkle pepper
Preheat oven for 350. Mix all the ingredients. Distribute evenly into 12 muffin cups (about 3/4 full). Squirt ketchup on the top and place in the oven for 35 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. I've never done a chicken loaf, but it sounds good. I like your idea of making your own ground chicken–never thought of that.

  2. This is a neat twist on traditional meatloaf. I love your take on sugar-free ketchup, too. I've made ketchup from roasted tomatoes and it's so much work. Thanks so much for linking to Slightly Indulgent Mondays!

    I am definitely going to try this recipe. It really looks great!! And it cuts the usual meatloaf cooking time in about half. Thanks!

  4. I've never made chicken meatloaf before but it looks pretty good. Thanks for the idea.
