Greek Chicken Meatloaf With Tzatziki Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Caroline Cooks

The low-cal meatloaf is a different approach to a Greek dinner. Add other herbs of your choice, if desired. BTW, are the left-overs ever so delish in a pita with the sauce. Makes me drool in anticipation! (I always double the sauce for the Gyros) Adapted from Southern Living.

We made the loaf and sauce exactly as written... and had it as gyros. The loaf has great flavor, acccepting that the texture in your gyros will be different! For the sauce, I used yogurt, it has good flavor, but we didn't care for the texture of grated cucumbers... I'd make this again but dice the cucumbers in the sauce. Overall easy to prepare, excellent step by step directions, flavorful and one I will likely repeat! TY for posting it!
