Crisper plate Burgers

I know I’ve said this before but I do love this little Crisper Plate from Hotpoint, it really does cook your food in a fraction of the time and the plate is so easy to clean as it’s non stick. Check out their range at Hotpoint

 

This was the cooking instructions on the packaging for the burgers:-

As you can see 14 mins is minimum time up to 30 mins in oven. With an added time of around 5-10 mins for the grill or oven to heat up first.

Using the Dynamic Crisp setting you preheat the plate for only 2 minutes, then I cooked the burgers for 8 minutes for a nice crisp finish. Amazing! Dinner in 10 minutes.

20180113_175122

Having some Maple Bacon Jam left after Xmas, I decided to try it with Chicken and it was delicious, perfect combination. I also used my Crisper plate to cook some crispy potatoes, perfect accompaniment.

 

Serves 2

For the Chicken

2 Chicken Breasts

1/4 jar of Maple Bacon Jam – bought from The SweetBeet Co. Maple Bacon Jam

50g Spinach

Salt & pepper to taste

For the potatoes

6-8 charlotte potatoes – cut into quarters or halves (depending on size)

1 tbsp olive oil

Salt & pepper to taste

 

  1. Preheat oven to 200 deg
  2. Make openings in the chicken breast 3/4 way down, don’t cut all the way to the bottom                                                                                                                                                20180113_164845
  3.  Wilt the spinach on the hob and mix in a bowl with the maple bacon jam.
  4.  Stuff the mix into the chicken slits and then season the chicken with salt & pepper.
  5. Wrap the chicken losely in tin foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes. The last 5 minutes of cooking, open up the foil to allow to brown slightly.
  6. Meanwhile, preheat your crisperplate for 3 minutes on dynamic crisp setting (hotpoint oven only).

  7. Place uncooked cut potatoes into a food bag and pour olive oil in with plenty seasoning and shake to coat. Pour onto preheat plate and bake for about 12-13 minutes.
  8. Serve both together….yummy!   I used a drizzle of Maple Syrup over my chicken…delicious!
