MiMi's Meatloaf - Chicken Parm

    I have a confession to make.  I didn't make this meatloaf.  MiMi made it herself.  I was on the road all day today, so it was nice to be invited over for dinner.  The meatloaf was yummy and the company was great.  Jax always loves a visit to MiMi and Pops' house and he even got to see a couple of aunts and uncles.  Mom has made this a few times before, and I have had the pleasure of leftovers.  This was my first time getting fresh meatloaf and I have to say it was pretty tasty!

MiMi's Chicken Parm Meatloaf


1 cup pesto
2 lbs ground chicken
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups marinara sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Mix chicken, bread crumbs, eggs, parmesan cheese.
  3. Place a piece of plastic wrap on the counter.  Dump meatloaf mixture onto wrap and pat into a 9" x 13" rectangle.  
  4. Spread the pesto over the meatloaf mixture.  Leave an inch on the long side farthest from you and the two ends. Top with 2 cups of mozzarella.  
  5. Using the plastic wrap to help, roll the meatloaf into a log.  Lightly press on the ends and along the seam to seal in the yummy goodness,
  6. Place on parchment paper lined rimmed baking sheet, seam side down.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes.  Remove from oven and top with marinara and remaining mozzarella.  Bake until cheese is melty.
