Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf

I can hear the groans now. “Ugggghhhh, meatloaf!”

Anyway, I love meatloaf, and if you love buffalo chicken anything, you’ve just got to try this. Very little prep time, super moist, and SO MUCH FLAVOR! Sadly, I didn’t have any celery or bleu cheese on hand, but I did swap in feta instead of the bleu cheese. We went without the celery this time… but you can bet it’ll be in there next time!

So my loaf pan is a little deeper than 3 inches.

I even got my Nikon out for this one 😉

Funny story: after I portioned out D’s dinner, I called him out to the kitchen. He took one look at his plate and said, “What’s this? Cornbread?” No, sir. Not even a little close.

Prep time: 15-20 minutes (includes carrot-grating time!)

Total Time: 1 hour

Servings: 4

Points +: 6

WPA Simply Filling: 2

Ingredients

  • 2/3 c old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 c fat-free milk
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp buffalo wing sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground chicken breast
  • 1/2 c finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 c shredded carrot
  • 1/4 c finely chopped sweet onion
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 oz (about 1/2 c) reduced-fat bleu cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly mist a 9” x 5” x 3” (slightly smaller is OK) loaf pan with olive oil spray or cooking spray.
  2. Combine the oats and milks in a medium mixing bowl and stir to mix. Let stand for 3 minutes, or until the oats begin to soften. Stir in the wing sauce until well mixed.
  3. Add the chicken, celery, carrot, onion, egg whites, and salt. With a fork or clean hands, mix the ingredients well. Add the bleu cheese and gently mix to combine.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and spread so that the top is flat. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through and no longer pink. Cut into 8 slices and serve immediately.

    • Hi, Ashley! I just had leftovers for lunch today, and it was just as wonderful the second time around. I also got to thinking that a little drizzle of buffalo sauce over top of it before eating would make it even better… food for thought!
