I think that meatloaf is the ultimate comfort food. Most meatloaf recipes call for ground beef, but this Spiced Chicken Meatloaf recipe uses ground chicken.
The combination of the chicken and the spices makes this meatloaf recipe a family favorite - especially for those that don't like or want to eat ground beef-based meatloaves.
💭 Ingredient Substitution
I come to find out that Ground Chicken can be hard to find. If you can't find Ground Chicken at your local grocery store, you can substitute for Ground Turkey. The flavor profile is very similar.
You will notice that this chicken meatloaf recipe calls for some stuffing mix. This is used in this recipe instead of breadcrumbs in traditional meatloaf recipes to help absorb some of the juices and keep the meat mixture moist.

Haven’t tried this recipe yet but just wanted to say if you can’t find ground chicken just grind chicken breasts meat it by pulsing a Ninja blender. I saw in a video that froze skinless boneless chicken meat and shredded it on a cheese grater. I might try that and see how that works.
Good advice! Thanks!
