Chicken Loaf Francaise with Sun Dried Tomato
I used the Gia Russa Francaise Simmer Sauce on a recipe which I made on Cafe' Cheapo last week. I am not endorsing the product but I do like it.
This recipe packs all the flavors of Italian chicken meatloaf with this nice sauce surprise. You will love the flavor of the sun dried tomato in the loaf paired with the lemon and the rosemary.
Serves 4 -6.
1 pound ground chicken
1 tbs. grill seasoning for chicken (I used Weber Canadian)
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1 extra large egg, beaten
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. tomato paste
1/4 cup Julienne sliced sun dried tomato
1 tbs. grated Parmesan and Romano cheese
1 tbs. dried rosemary, divided
2 cups Gia Russa Francaise Simmer Sauce
Other: Cooking Spray
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Add the ground chicken, the grill seasoning, and the bread crumbs to a bowl. Beat egg and Worcestershire sauce together and add to bowl with the other ingredients. Add in the tomato paste, the sun dried tomatoes, grated cheese and half of the rosemary. Mix together well. Form into a loaf and add to a loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Top meatloaf with remaining rosemary.
Bake for 30 minutes. Pour one cup of the Francaise sauce evenly over the meatloaf and continue to bake for 30 more minutes.
Let the loaf rest for about five minutes before plating and slicing.
Serve with the remaining warm sauce.
Enjoy and I'll see you next week unless Hurricane Issac comes calling. If you are in the path of the storm, stay safe!
