Sugar-crusted chicken in blankets recipe
Who can resist a pig in a blanket, especially when we’ve subbed in homemade chicken, stuffing and cranberry sausages and coated them in a maple syrup glaze? They make the perfect finger food starter for any occasion.
* 500g chicken mince
* 150g stuffing mix
* 50g (1/3 cup) dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
* 3 garlic cloves, crushed
* 1 egg, lightly beaten
* 200g packet (8 slices) of streaky bacon
* 80g (1/2 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
* 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
* 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
3 Method / Steps
Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line a rimmed baking tray with baking paper.
Combine chicken, stuffing mix, cranberries, garlic and egg in a large bowl. Season. Shape 2 tablespoons of mixture into small sausage shapes, about 8cm long. Cut each rasher of bacon in half lengthways. Wrap a bacon strip around each chicken sausage. Place on prepared tray.
Place brown sugar, syrup and oil in a small bowl and stir to combine. Brush or spoon the sugar mixture over each sausage. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Serve.
