  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the celery and onion with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and browned, about 12 minutes. Stir in the carrot, and cook for 5 more minutes; stir in the apple, and remove the mixture from the heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl, lightly mix together the ground chicken, egg, 1/3 cup of applesauce, milk, bread crumbs, poultry seasoning, sage, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and black pepper. Mix in the cooked vegetable-apple mixture. Form the mixture into a loaf, and place into the center of a 9x12-inch baking dish.
  4. In a bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of applesauce, the Dijon mustard, and honey into a smooth mixture, and spread the glaze over the top and sides of the meat loaf.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until the internal temperature of the loaf is 180 degrees F (80 degrees C), about 30 more minutes. Allow the loaf to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This is the best meat loaf I have ever eaten. The only thing that I changed was the chicken, I used turkey. Very moist. Tired this out on my boyfriend and he went back twice for more. He coul...

Fantastic! My partner and my son loved this recipe. In fact, my partner says it's his favorite recipe I've ever made. I served this with mushroom-garlic-herb couscous cooked in chicken broth.

Fantastic! That was a hit in my house for family members of all ages (and a neighbor who wants the recipe). Thanks for a recipe that I will add to my favorites :o)

This was great! It tasted like a chicken dinner with all the fixins - all in one loaf! It was not - knock-me-down WOW (It IS chicken) - but it had enough flavor that it was great for kids and ...

This was delicious! My husband loved it, and I will definitely make it again. I made a few minor changes. I only used about 2 tablespoons of chopped onion, and about 1 stalk of celery. I le...

Everyone LOVED this dish. This is the best recipe I have found in a long time. Followed recipe as written.

This was wonderful. My husband and I couldn't stay away from it. He is usually leery of turkey/chicken "meat loaves". I used turkey instead of chicken and had to add about 6 oz of very lean h...

My family really did not care for this at all. It tasted too much like stuffing. Sorry! At least it's healthy!

Oh my this was sooooo good!! I used 1 lb of ground chicken b/c that was the size of the package. Thanks for this great recipe.
