Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf

Sharing is caring!

I have to admit it was the name of this dish that first intrigued me! Sure I like chicken parmesan, so why wouldn’t I like it in a meatloaf form? I was convinced to try this after my sister-in-law from Florida gave it rave reviews recently while we were talking on Facebook.
What’s not to like, it’s tender, moist and loaded with so much flavor! You could definitely pin this under,
comfort food!
I served it with roasted veggies tossed in my favorite balsamic glaze, a delicious weekday meal it was!
What makes this meatloaf taste so good is a healthy scoop of marinara sauce mixed right into the meat,  then when it’s about 3/4 done, you spoon more marinara over the top and layer on fresh mozzarella, it’s a beautiful thing!
The husband loved it so much he wanted to eat the leftovers the very next day!

recipe adapted from Joelen
I used ground turkey and it was a little over a pound but you can also replace with ground chicken
2 finely chopped garlic cloves
1/2 chopped onion
2 eggs
panko crumbs, enough to just soak up the moisture
1/2 cup marinara sauce, homemade preferred, additional for top and to serve with.
3/4 cup of small cubed asiago cheese
a handful of grated romano cheese
fresh chopped basil and parsley
s&p, of course
Mix everything together and form into a loaf on a sprayed baking sheet. Bake at 375 for around 1 hour. Last 20 minutes spoon marinara over top and place fresh mozzarella slices over it. Garnish with fresh basil.

    I love this recipe! Can this be frozen? If so before or after baking? Thank you!

    • Katie, I would freeze it maybe after baking, although I’ve never done it, I have froze meatballs after cooking and they always turn out when defrosted and heated up.

  2. I made this today and it was absolutely delicious and I will be making it again!! Thank you for the great recipe

  5. This was fabulous. Made it with turkey and we loved it!!!!

  6. This looks wonderful. How many does it serve

  7. This was so amazing! I made last night and it really did taste like chicken parm. I used the lean ground turkey because I’m on a fit program, but wonderful. Thanks!!

  8. I’m so glad I found this delicious recipe. It has become a favorite at home. I sent it to my sister in Barcelona, and she made it for the holidays in 2012. We both make it often. Thanks for posting it. It’s sooo good.

    I have made this many times in the last month. It has been a BIG hit with my entire family. I have had everyone do a taste test and everyone wanted the recipe. The best meatloaf I have made to date and I have made many. I do not usually make the same thing twice, so when I tell you I made it several times, you can bet it is a great big compliment to the Proud Italian Cook who provided the recipe. YUM…..

  10. Oh my gosh Marie that looks mouth-watering! The idea of roasted veggies with balsamic for balance on the side sounds perfect.

  11. I’m always looking for ways to jazz up turkey meat loaf. I must try this!

  12. Wonderful comfort food! I also prefer using leaner ground turkey to make meat loaf, Marie. Adding asiago cheese to the mix sounds so delicious!

  13. Marie, this looks so delicious, I am absolutely going to make this. Love the roasted veggies too, although I love mashed potatoes with meat loaf. xo
