If you haven’t discovered ground chicken you need to!! This is a diabetic and cardiac diet friendly recipe and it has so much flavor! With my Husband’s illness I have now discovered how to cook low fat, low carb AND low sodium. I have found lots of new ways to create flavor with very little or no salt. I will be posting these healthy recipes along with all my other favorites. Enjoy!!
*8 serving meatloaf (per serving) Sat. fat 3.2g \ Sodium 355 mg \ Carbs 8.6g \
*10 serving meatloaf (per serving) Sat. fat 2.6g \ Sodium 284 mg \ Carbs 6.9g \
**Remember: Ingredients are very important to stay within the sodium, fat and carb guidelines. I have specified product brands to use. If you have no diet restrictions you can use ground turkey or ground beef and other brands you prefer.
This is a 13×9 meatloaf. The servings are pretty large. Recipe can be cut in half or you can cut the pieces smaller. It’s pretty hardy!
Preheat Oven to 400 degrees and spray a 13×9 baking dish with olive oil cooking spray
Combine in a large mixing bowl.. (do not over mix, just until blended)
- 2 lbs. Perdue ground chicken
- 1- 28 oz. can Furmano’s Italian style diced basil garlic oregano tomatoes/ drain slightly
- 1 egg- beaten
- 10 saltine crackers crushed (can add more if sodium isn’t a concern)
- 2 tsp. prepared horseradish
- 1 tbs. E. V. Olive Oil
- (All dry spices are Simply Organic Brand because they don’t add sodium and I love them!)

Put mixture into baking dish and form into a meatloaf leaving about an inch open all the way around between meatloaf and baking dish. Meatloaf should be about 2 inches high.

Take approx. 1/4 c. of grated Parmesan cheese and sprinkle evenly across meatloaf. If no diet restrictions you can use up to a 1/2 c.
