MINI CHICKEN MEATLOAVES
I was flipping through some recipes I had saved and saw one that sounded really good! Of course, I couldn't just leave it like it was, soooo I Ariana'itzed it! :)
First off, I didn't have any ground turkey or chicken (if you want lean ground turkey or chicken, you have to pay an arm and a leg for it, so I never buy it. ) Instead I make my own.
How to make ground chicken or turkey in three easy steps:
First off, I used chicken breast that I half-defrosted and then cut into chunks.
2. Then I pureed it into
ground turkey in my food processor.
3. Put it all together. In the end, I ended up with about two cups of ground turkey. (I tried to
weigh it but my scale wasn't working.) Use it for this recipe or freeze for later use :).
Sorry if those pics are kind of unappetizing but it is so worth it in the end :)
The finished product, well, before cooking :)

Ingredients:3 large chicken breasts (pureed into ground turkey)
1/2 c. chopped carrot (sneak some good veggies in there- your kids won't even notice)

1 t. marjoram
1 t. salt
Preheat oven for 350. Mix all the ingredients. Distribute evenly into 12 muffin cups (about 3/4 full). Squirt ketchup on the top and place in the oven for 35 minutes. Enjoy!
