Orange Chicken Meatloaf

One of our favorite Asian dishes is Orange Chicken. And who doesn’t love a good meatloaf? We married these two for a simple sweet and savory crowd-pleaser. 


  • 1½ pounds ground chicken

  • 1 egg

  • ½ cup evaporated milk

  • ¾ cup plain panko breadcrumbs

  • 2–3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon freshly zested ginger

  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium tamari or soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons white pepper

  • Juice and zest of 1 orange

  • Toasted sesame seeds or Everything Bagel seasoning


  • 1 cup orange marmalade

  • ⅓ cup thick BBQ sauce (we used NC’s Bone Suckin’ Sweet Southern)

  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all loaf ingredients except seeds. Let stand 5 minutes. Whisk together glaze ingredients. Mound loaf mixture onto a parchment- paper-lined baking pan. Using fingers, poke indentions on top to hold the glaze while baking. Baste with half of the glaze and sprinkle with seeds.

  2. Bake about 30 minutes until 165 degrees in center. Remove from oven and brush with glaze. Pass the extra for spooning.

Note: We prefer to not use a loaf pan so there is more exposed area for a “crispy” crust.
