An incredibly delicious chicken or turkey meatloaf. For this you can use store-bought minced chicken if you know a good manufacturer or mince chicken by yourself. The latter is of course more preferable as you are the one to choose what meat to have on your table. The meatloaf will be more delicious if made with dark chicken or turkey meat, that is drumstick meat. Though a chicken meatloaf cooks up tenderer than a turkey one, no matter which one you choose – thank to vegetables either of them will cook up juicy and moist, and sour-sweet glaze will perfectly accent tender meat.

Such meatloaf is a variation of traditional American meatloaf, which is usually coated in caramelized ketchup glaze. If you haven’t yet made such glaze, don’t be skeptic about it – it perfectly complements the loaf. It goes without saying that for this glaze it’s better to use the best ketchup on the market.

This recipe makes a pretty large loaf (35-40 cm length and 8-10 cm in diameter), so if you want just to trial, just halve the recipe.

Bon appetite!
