Tropical Chicken Meatloaf

The burgers that were included on the March Paleo Menu were so incredibly delicious that I wanted to find a way to get the same taste using an easier format. Yes, burgers are easy! But meatloaf is even easier. So I decided to revampe them into a Whole30 friendly, easy peasy meal. If takes a small amount of work on cooking day. But all you have to do on serving day is pull it out of the freezer to defrost and stick it in the oven. It can’t get much easier than that!

    For the record, I do NOT like mango or coconut, but WOW! This chicken meatloaf is so good! I’ve been running out of dinner ideas and needed something different. The tropical twist is perfect for the coming summer months. It will definitely be on our menu rotation. Thank you!

    Made these last night and they were fantastic! Served with riced cauliflower (seasoned with lime juice and cilantro) and roasted green beans with lemon juice. I also made zucchini brownies. It was a paleo feast! Thanks for the great recipe!

    Any suggestions for a substitute fruit if I’m allergic to mango (such a bummer cuz I LOVE the taste!)

    How long do you suggest to cook the meatloaf from the freezer, un-cooked?

    This might be a silly question…but is the mango mixed into the loaf with all of the other ingredients? That is the way the instructions read but in your lovely picture it looks like it is some sort of garnish on top.

    Just tried this recipe and has good flavor but is very dry. Any suggestions for salvation? Thanks in advance !

      Paula – A few things that might help – omitting the coconut, or even adding a small amount of apple sauce to the meatloaf mixture. If you do try either, please let us know how it works out!

        I think it would also depend on the leanness of the ground chicken you bought. I know my local organic market has one with thigh meat and one with just white meat.
