To make this meatloaf, I started by placing some ground chicken, Italian seasoned bread crumbs, basil pesto and an egg in a mixing bowl.

I used a fork to combine all of the ingredients.

Then I lined a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with aluminum foil and sprayed it with cooking spray.

The aluminum foil makes it easy to remove the meatloaf from the pan after cooking.

Then I scooped half of the meat mixture into the loaf pan and pressed it out evenly.

I took six mozzarella string cheese strips and placed them in the center of the meatloaf.

I cut two of the sticks in half to make them fit.

Then I placed the remaining meat mixture on top and pressed it out evenly.

I placed the loaf pan in the oven and cooked the meatloaf for 40 minutes.

Then I removed it from the oven and spread pizza sauce on top.

I returned the meatloaf to the oven to cook for another 15 minutes.

After I removed the meatloaf from the oven I allowed it to rest for 5 minutes before lifting it out of the pan.
