You can substitute ground beef in this meatloaf recipe, if you wish. But you save the calories by using ground chicken. This recipe has a great flavour, texture and aroma!

- 1⁄2 cup fine breadcrumbs
- 1 large egg white
- 1 medium carrot
- 1 small onion
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine chicken and bread crumbs in large bowl.
- Set aside.
- Cut the carrot& onion into chunks and add to blender.
- Add the remaining 7 ingredients to the blender.
- Process in blender until carrot is very fine.
- Pour blender mixture over meat mixture.
- Mix very well using your hands.
- Form mixture into a loaf and place in lightly greased 9" X 13" pan.
- Cover with foil and bake for one hour.
- Remove foil& continue baking for 15-30 minutes, until loaf is cooked through.
I don't mean to disrespect the people who say it doesn't have any flavor, but maybe they over-flavor their food in general, because this loaf was very tasty. The carrots and ketchup add a nice sweetness, and the W. Sauce adds a zing. The onion and garlic are very aromatic as well as a great combo to the ground chicken. I love that this is low-calorie and has awesome flavor.
To those reading these reviews: yes, if you overuse (or use GENEROUSLY) condiments, spices, herbs, what-have-you on a regular basis, this might be too bland for you in it's original context. Spice it up a bit. But this is, by no means, bland or flavorless all by itself. Those comments must have been exaggerated.
Love the recipe. Gonna defend it. Thanks Debbb!
loved it!! Great idea to use the blender to chop up the carrots etc. Mine may have been a little over blended, it was quite liquid, next time I will leave it a bit chunky.I added some chipolte sauce to the mix for a little kick. Otherwise followed instructions. I did form it into a loaf but cooked it on a foil lined cookie sheet. I used half chicken and half turkey, turned out to be a nice combination. We had half for supper (with leftovers) and I froze the other half. Thanks for posting, we enjoyed it very much. Forgot to mention, it cut beautifully and am looking forward to sandwiches for lunch!!
This is a great recipe. I substituted salsa (I like medium and my wife likes mild) for the ketchup. I also spooned some salsa across the top of the loaf. Everyone who has tried this loves it.
