I was craving a chicken meatloaf for about a week straight. I have no idea why. In fact, I don't even think I've ever actually had a chicken meatloaf before. Beef, bison, pork, yes but not chicken.
Well, whatever the reason for the craving, it hit the spot. A nice warm meal to eat while watching one of my many fall season night-time guilty pleasures, 'Revenge.'
(Note: This makes a small loaf enough for about two people)
1lbs ground chicken, organic/hormone free
1 egg, cage-free/ organic
2 tbls ground flax-seed
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small sweet yellow onion, minced
1 carrot, shredded and minced
1 kale leaf, shredded and minced
Pinch of sage
Pinch of thyme
Pinch of pepper
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of cumin
Plop everything in a large mixing bowl and mix together thoroughly. I suggest using your hands. It will be cold but it's the best way :)
Place in a bread loaf pan or form a loaf and place in a casserole dish. Bake at 375° ~35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked throughout.
You could use less flax-seed. I put enough in for about 2 pounds of meat because I was on auto-pilot. It wasn't bad though probably not necessary.
Wholesome, nutrient-dense and delicious!
