Barbecue Chicken Meatloaf


For the topping:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Place the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, tomato paste, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar and smoked paprika in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper and combine thoroughly.
  3. Turn the mixture onto the prepared pan and form into a uniform loaf. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
  4. Make the topping by combining the ketchup, Worcestershire and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and spread the topping evenly over the top.
  5. Continue baking the meatloaf for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°F.
  6. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.


This meatloaf can easily be made with ground beef, pork or turkey as well.
