Chicken Parmesan Mini Meatloaves- Healthyish Foods

Recipes like this one take me back to my childhood. We would always experiment with different ingredients and cooking techniques. I can remember my Mom always saying, “you don’t have to like something, but you have to try it!” I still stick by that mantra to this day! But this recipe is all of the classics rolled (literally) into one. If classic meatloaf and chicken parmesan had a love child, this would be it! It’s cheesy, tender, and packed with flavor. What more can you want from a mini meatloaf?

Ingredients

Chicken Meatloaves

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • ½ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper

Sauce, Cheese and Spices:

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped small
  • pinch red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 jar red sauce, I used Delallo's tomato basil sauce

Equipment

  • 9×5 baking dish
  • sauce pot
  • mixing bowl

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Gently spray a 9×5-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set it aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine, the ground chicken, egg, milk, Italian breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, dried parsley, and salt & pepper.
  • Mix well using your hands but do not overwork the chicken mixture.
  • Once well combined, form the chicken mixture into two large loaves.
  • Form a small pocket in the center of the loaves and add mozzarella cheese. Reshape the meat to completely submerge the cheese inside the center of the loaf. Repeat for the second loaf.
  • Grab your prepared baking dish and add a thin coating of the Delallo Foods tomato basil sauce to the bottom of the baking dish. About 1-2 ladels.
  • Place the loaves on top of the sauce and cover with foil.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees or until the chicken loaves are fully cooked through.
    Once cooked through, remove the foil and add some shredded mozzarella on top of both loaves, broil for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese get a little brown and bubbly.
  • Serve with pasta or veggies. Enjoy!
