Ingredients

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 1/2 cups finely diced white onions

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup panko

1/2 cup whole milk

Unsalted butter, for greasing

2 pounds ground chicken (see Cook's Note)

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

2/3 cup hoisin sauce

1/3 cup blackberry jam

Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with butter (see Cook's Note).
  2. Heat the olive oil and sesame oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat until warm. Add the onions, garlic, ginger and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and let cool to room temperature.
  3. Meanwhile, stir together the panko and milk in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes, then transfer to the large bowl. Add the chicken, soy sauce and eggs and mix together with your hands just until combined. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top. Bake the meatloaf for 45 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the hoisin sauce and blackberry jam in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth and warm, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and brush generously with the hoisin glaze. Return to the oven and continue to bake until the meatloaf reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the meatloaf sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the meatloaf then slice and serve topped with the remaining hoisin glaze.

Cook’s Note

The secret to super-moist chicken meatloaf is to use ground dark meat chicken. If you can't find ground chicken, you can easily substitute ground turkey or any combination of ground pork, beef or veal. If you don't have a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan you can create a freeform meatloaf on a nonstick baking sheet and adjust the cooking time as needed.
