Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf

I tried something new tonight... yep that's what this blog is all about so I decided to push myself and do something I have never done before.  I used ground chicken!  For some reason the thought of ground chicken really bothered me.  I guess it is no different than ground beef but still it just seemed odd.  So since I didn't have any ground chicken I cut the fat off my chicken breasts and zapped it in the food processor.

This dish turned out pretty good, hubby and my neighbor really liked it, I liked it too but it wasn't one of my favorite dishes ever.  I would make this again, though it will probably be a while!

1 pound ground chicken
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic, and parmesan cheese.
Mix the mixture with your hands.
Place into a greased loaf pan and form the chicken mixture into a loaf shape.
Top the meatloaf with the marinara sauce.
Bake for 50-55 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
When done remove and add the mozzarella cheese on top.
Return the meatloaf to the oven until the cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and let the meatloaf rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
