I was really skeptical at first, but this was delicious! It was tender, but not too greasy (I did pour off a fair amount of the 'juice' that accumulated during cooking, but it was fine after that) Everyone in my family loved it. We used the leftovers on top of baked potatoes for lunch the next day. A MAJOR hit!!
We doubled the recipe & made one loaf for us, & eight mini loaves for another family... one or two for a portion, depending on appetite. I thought this loaf was delicious, the combo of chicken & beef seems a lot less greasy as the other reviewer said. I don't normally use a glaze on meatloaf but this was delicious, sweet but not too sweet as the mustard gave it some zip. Thanks for sharing Pamela - this is our new standard meatloaf & I can't wait to have a meatloaf sandwich for lunch :-)
Delicious! Using part ground chicken in a meat loaf cut down on the fattiness quite dramatically and the glaze on top was fantastic. The only change I made was leaving out the liquid smoke - I never buy it. Reviewed for Pick A Chef spring 2006.
