  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup celery (diced)
  • 1 cup sweet onion (diced)
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 large egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 4 ounces dried apples (diced)
  • 1 4-5 inch poblano pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Pickapeppa Sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, sauté the celery and onion until the onion is just translucent, about 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the chicken, egg, panko, dried apples, poblano peppers, salt, pepper, and sautéed onions and celery. Mix gently.
  • Form the mixture into a loaf shape and place in a baking dish just large enough to hold the loaf. An 11 x 7-inch baking dish works well.
  • Bake, uncovered, for about 30 minutes.
  • Spread the pickapeppa sauce over the top of the loaf, then continue baking until the internal temperature is 160°F, about 30 more minutes.
  • Remove the meatloaf from the oven and allow it to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
