Chicken Herb Meatloaf w/ Pitas

I tried this recipe a few years ago when I was at the beginning of my culinary adventures. It came to my memory last night so I decided to give it ago again. What is with Wal-mart packaging red peppers in plastic wrap? It was moldy so only green peppers made it in this time. You can use 2 lbs of ground chicken or 4 large chicken breast processed raw in a food processor. The ingredients list seems long but most of the items you have lying around your pantry.

1/2 c dry bread crumbs
1/3 c light mayo
2 tablespoons dried parley
