Step 1: Ingredients and Cookware

Here is the ingredients you need to make this great dinner.

1 lb Ground Chicken

2/3 cup Bread Crumbs

1/4 cup Mayo

1/2 tsp : Garlic powder 
               Onion powder
               Sage (ground)
               Basil (dry)
               Worcestershire Sauce

1/2 tbsp    Thyme
                   Black Pepper

Juice from half a lemon



Baking dish


Clean hand


Step 2: Mix It All Up and Enjoy

Preheat your oven for 350.

Pour all the dry stuff in the mixing bowl and give a few turns with the spoon.

Next add the meat, mayo and other ingredients and get to mixing. (I find that my hand works great for mixing things together, but a spoon will get the job done.)

Form the mix into a loaf shape and pop it in the oven for 30-45 minutes. I always double check with my thermometer. You can pull it out around 175 and expect it to coast up to 180 plus after it rest under foil a few minutes.

Add some corn, mashed potatoes and other yummy sides and you have a new favorite dinner!

    I tried this tonight for dinner and it's pretty darn good! I did make one minor change. I added about 1/4 c mozzarella cheese to the mix. Otherwise I made it as you specified. Yums!
