Anyway, before Christmas, I did a post about frying apples. When mine were cooled, I put them in the freezer so that I could use them for a chicken and apple cheesebake. So this is how I make it.
First of all cook the chicken. Normally I use roast chicken but this time I fried it. I used five chicken breast fillets cut into cubes. I used my new purple silicon slotted spoon stir it about! This was one of the few things I bought when we were on our wee pre-Christmas holiday.
When the chicken was cooked I put it in an oven proof dish. Although you can't see it in the picture, the dish is also purple!
Toast about 250g of breadcrumbs.
For my cheesebake I made a pint of white sauce - using the all in one method ...
... and then added about 270g of grated mature cheddar and stirred until it was completely melted into the sauce.
While I was cooking I remembered my little embroidery that hangs above the Aga. It's very true.
It takes five or six apples for a cheesebake. Here I topped the cooked chicken with roughly half of the fried apple slices. Keep the best looking slices for the top.
Then I poured the cheese sauce over the chicken and apples.
Next I sprinkled about 90g of grated mature cheddar over the apples ...
... and topped the lot with the breadcrumbs.
I cooked my cheesebake for about thirty minutes in the Aga roasting oven. That's a hot oven; about 250°C or 490°F. The chicken is already cooked so it's just heating everything up and browning the top.
Of course I forgot to take a picture when it was cooked! It tasted delicious though. You could make it with turkey instead of chicken and you could do without adding any cheese (or use less cheese) if you prefer.
Not exactly a recipe but close. Let me know if you try it.
All the best for now. I hope to get back to reading and commenting on your blogs too.
