Chicken Meatloaf

This calls for ground chicken but you could use ground turkey and call it Turkey Meatloaf!

Chicken Meatloaf

1 1/2 pounds uncooked ground chicken
1/2 cup cracker crumbs
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided (Could use olive oil)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients except 1 tablespoon oil in large bowl until evenly combined.

Shape into loaf. Place in loaf pan and pour remaining tablespoon oil over loaf. Bake for 40-45 minutes until top is lightly browned and juices run clear when poked.

You could sneak in some healthy stuff like fiber powder into this. My mom used to make meatloaf with ground beef and sneak in some of her healthy powders! She made us promise not to tell our dad what she was putting in there, so we never did tell him what was in it. We just watched and smirked while he ate it and smacked his lips!
