BBQ Cheddar Chicken Meatloaf made with extra lean ground chicken, your favorite bbq sauce, shredded cheddar cheese and gluten free breadcrumbs.
I hate to throw anything food related away; especially when I can usually utilize it to make other new recipes. Because our grilling season is coming to an end (at least here at our home in NJ), I had some leftover bbq sauce and decided to use it to make this BBQ Cheddar Chicken Meatloaf for dinner one night.
This recipe is super simple to make; which makes it even better now that school and our hectic schedules are back in full swing.
Our oldest is home from college taking her last 3 credits at a local school to graduate and walk in December from Penn State University; as well as working full time and taking her NASM certification to become a Personal Trainer before applying to grad schools next Fall.
Our youngest started her junior year of high school and is taking a full course load while participating in cheerleading and PALS; a peer support group to help incoming high school students.
She also volunteers as a peer minister for our local church to help other students prepare for the sacrament of confirmation, is on the varsity club and getting ready to take her driving test in 3 months. We are so proud of both girls for working so hard to reach their goals!
Needless to say we are BUSY, BUSY, BUSY and meals like this BBQ Cheddar Chicken Meatloaf make dinnertime easy. What’s also nice is that meatloaf always reheats well so I can make this in the late afternoon and everyone can reheat it for dinner when it’s convenient for them since our schedules don’t always coincide.
