Easy, Low Calorie Meatloaf Recipe

Updated on December 13, 2014

Meatloaf – some love it, while others consider it the unappetizing cousin of fruitcake. I for one count myself in the former category. I think meatloaf is delicious. However, it’s not always super easy to make or super low in calories. To that end, I’ve created a simple meatloaf recipe that’s low in calories but still full of flavor. I should actually probably call it a poultry loaf because it uses chicken instead of the traditional ground pork and beef – it’s just as delicious though (even my meat-loving husband was asking for seconds).

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 55 min
Yields: About 5 servings

Ingredients

  • One 9 oz package Perdue chicken strips
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup egg substitutes
  • One medium tomato, diced
  • One cup sliced mushrooms, (from a can)
  • 2 TBS spicy mustard
  • Ketchup
  1. Shred the chicken strips by tearing and cutting them.
  2. Combine shredded chicken with all other ingredients (except the ketchup) and mix well.
  3. Scrape mixture into a greased meatloaf pan.
  4. Cover pan with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
  5. Remove pan and spread enough ketchup on the meatloaf to cover the top completely.
  6. Return pan to oven, uncovered, and bake for another 20 minutes. Remove, cool, and serve.

      Hi Victoria - Perdue is just the particular brand of pre-cooked chicken I used. You can use any brand really. I like to use the pre-cooked stuff because it's convenient.
