Chicken Loaf, Deluxe (M, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 8 to10

Meatloaf:
2 pounds ground chicken
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup applesauce, unsweetened
3 tablespoons toasted minced onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup corn, frozen kernels
1/2 red bell pepper, minced
1/4 cup parsley, minced (or 2 tbsp. dried)
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Glaze:
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared mustard

Make Meatloaf:
Combine the chicken, egg, oatmeal, applesauce, onion, corn, red pepper, parsley, soy sauce, 2 tbsp. ketchup and pepper. Mix just until the ingredients are blended.

Form into an oval loaf in a large rectangular baking dish which has been sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. (I used Pyrex.)

Make Glaze and Assembly:
Mix the glaze ingredients and spread over the loaf.

Bake in a 350°F oven for about 1-1/2 hours until the glaze starts to brown. Drain any fat that accumulates in the baking dish. Slice and serve.

Reheats well. May be frozen.

Poster's Notes:
I adapted this loosely from a recipe I had gotten off the internet several years ago, and made it for Friday night dinner. Everyone gave it a thumbs up, and I will certainly make it again. It was very moist, tasty, and easy to prepare. I would have liked to use all white meat ground chicken (or turkey) to lower the fat content (the ground chicken I used was 7% fat by weight), but couldn't find any in the supermarket. However, some of the fat did render out while cooking, and I was able to drain it off.
