Breaded Chicken

  • 6 Manor Farm chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp test

Pineapple Fritters

  • 6 rings of pineapple
  • 150 g Plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 100 ml Milk
  • Pinch salt

Other Ingredients

  • 3 ripe tomatoes
  • 6 rashers of bacon


To make the fritters:

  • Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together.
  • Whisk in the egg and the milk until a thick batter is achieved. Allow this to rest for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Dip the pineapple ring into the batter and make sure the ring is well coated.
  • Heat a large frying pan with a little oil and panfry the rings on both sides until golden brown and the batter is crisp. (Alternatively, you can use a deep fat fryer ). Drain the pineapple on kitchen paper and keep warm until required.

To cook the chicken:

  • Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas Mark 4. Whisk the egg and milk together.
  • Mix the Cajun spice into the white breadcrumbs.
  • Dip the chicken into the plain flour, which you have seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • Shake off any excess flour and immerse it fully in the egg wash mixture.
  • Drain off the excess and then fully coat the chicken in the Cajun breadcrumb mixture.
  • Meanwhile heat a large pan and pan fry the breaded chicken on a low heat for about 3 minutes on either side until it golden brown.
  • Place the sealed chicken breast onto a flat baking tray and pop it into the oven for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked right through (use a knife to check-or when the chicken is fully cooked it should feel firm in the centre when pressed and juices will run clear.
  • About 10-12 minutes before the chicken is cooked take it out of the oven and lay a rasher of bacon on top of the chicken, place the sealed pineapple fritter on top of that and finish it off with ½ tomato. If desired you can secure the entire combination with a cocktail stick.
  • Return the dressed chicken to the oven and continue to cook for a few minutes. Serve the chicken Maryland with side salad and garlic butter.
