Adapted from Joelen
•1lb ground chicken (can also use turkey)
•2-3 finely chopped garlic cloves
•1/2 chopped onion
•panko crumbs, enough to just soak up the moisture
•1/2 cup marinara sauce + more for on top
•3/4 cup of mozzarella or parmesan cheese
•fresh mozzarella for top, if desired.
•fresh chopped basil and parsley
•Salt & pepper of course
•Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
•Mix everything together and form into a loaf on a sprayed baking sheet.
•Bake for around 1 hour. After 40 minutes spoon marinara sauce over top and place fresh mozzarella slices over it, if desired. Garnish with fresh basil.
I use any Italian cheese I have on hand and dried basil and parsley when I don’t have fresh herbs on hand. Either way this dish is a crowd pleaser and great to have leftover if your family doesn’t devour it!
