Stuffed Chicken Meatloaf

  

2 lbs ground chicken

1 cup shredded carrots

1-2 cup yellow onion -diced

1 cup garlic croutons- crushed

1 1/4 tsp garlic powder

12 oz V8 juice

1-8 tsp worcheshire sauce

1 cup tomato sauce

2 egg whites

1 1/2 cups frozen spinach- cooked and drained well

3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Mix meat,carrots,onions,garlic powder,croutons,6 oz V8 juice,worcheshire, 1/4 cup tomato sauce,egg whites

Put 3/4 of mixture in greased pan 

Add spinach and 1 cup mozzarella then cover with reT of meat mix

Mold into a loaf and add rest of V8 juice and top with rest of tomato sauce

Cook for 45-50 minutes. Top with rest of cheese and cook for 15 minutes longer.    Rest for 10 minutes
I served it with peas and garlic mashed potatoes.   The addition of the garlic croutons brings in alot of flavor. I chose to use only the whites, for a lighter, healthier dish.   The V8 juice kept it moist and delicious!

To make it even more decadent- top with peppered bacon! Yum!!!!!
