Chicken Meat Loaf


4 servings

This Chicken Meat Loaf is also a clever way to try ground chicken if you've never had it, but because chicken is so lean, you'll need to boost flavor with big flavor ingredients like yellow mustard and ketchup. This recipe is a family favorite, popular with both kids and parents alike. Traditional meatloaf can be greasy or dry, but this chicken meat loaf recipe gets a fun pop of flavor from soy sauce, and has the added benefit of a few veggies tucked into the loaf, like green onions and button mushrooms. Pair this recipe with roasted potatoes or a green salad for an easy weeknight dinner.


  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 4 ounces button mushrooms
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • Cooking spray
