BBQ Chicken Meatloaf

Earlier this evening I twitpic’d a picture of the homemade mac & cheese with bacon and Vidalia onion I made for dinner. My buddy said I was making him hungry so naturally I had to pour salt in the wound of his empty stomach by mentioning the BBQ chicken meatloaf I was making along with it.

And then came the requests for the recipe.

So here you go.

Keep in mind this is a slow cooker recipe but can easily be adapted to the oven if you don’t give yourself enough time to cook it in the slow cooker. Which is what happened to me today.

Barbecue-Glazed Turkey Meatloaf
*taken (and slightly adapted every time I make it) from the WW Everyone Loves Chicken cookbook*

1 1/4 pounds ground turkey breast (I’ve also used ground chicken)
1/3 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup minced onion
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard (I’ve also used Dijon mustard and honey mustard with a bit of horseradish)

  1. Fold a piece of foil slightly longer than your slow cooker (or loaf pan if doing in oven) in half lengthwise. Fit into the bottom and up side of slow cooker. This makes a handy method of removing the loaf when finished.
  2. Mix turkey, bread crumbs, cheese, onion, egg, oregano, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Use your hands. Seriously. Shape mixture into a loaf and place in slow cooker or loaf pan.
  3. Cover slow cooker and cook until meatloaf juices run clear and thermometer reaches 165°. About 3–4 hours on high or 6–8 hours on low. OR…bake in the oven at 350° for about 45 minutes.
  4. Combine ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard in a small bowl. Spoon over meatloaf. Cover slow cooker and cook about 30 minutes longer. (If baking in a loaf pan in the oven cook another 15 minutes. Uncovered.)

That’s it.

Pretty easy right?
