Stuffed Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf: Serves 8


INGREDIENTS:


For the meatloaf

  • 2 3/4 lbs ground chicken

  • 1 cup no sugar added Marinara Sauce such as Rao’s, divided

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tbsp Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped

  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 3/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

For the filling and the topping

  • 1 cup part skim ricotta cheese

  • 1 ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded, divided

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded, divided

  • 2 tbsp Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped

  • 2 tsp chives, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 400°

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, 1/4 cup of marinara sauce, garlic, parsley, Italian seasoning, onion powder, sea salt and black pepper. Divide the mixture into 2 equal portions.

  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, parsley, chives, garlic and sea salt. Mix until all ingredients are combined.

  • Put half of the meat mixture into the bottom of a 9.25 x 5.25 x 2 3/4 loaf pan. Press evenly into the pan, reaching all the way to the corners.

  • Make a groove down the center of the meat. Layer the cheese filling down the center.

  • Top with the second half of the meat mixture, spreading evenly across the pan and pressing down into the bottom layer. Bake for 20 minutes.

  • Remove the meatloaf from the oven and top with 1/4 cup of marinara sauce and remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

  • Return to the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

  • After slicing the meatloaf, top each slice with the remaining marinara sauce.
