Cooking Chicken using Automatic Programmes

1 x chicken approx 1 – 1.5kg – I used 1.12kg

Baste and stuff with your prefered flavourings.

I used 1 onion and some garlic to stuff inside and baste with olive oil and sprinkle some herbs.

Place in baking tray and then on shelf level 3 in oven.

Select chicken programme and press start. Adjust time to suit weight/size of chicken.

I recommend 55 mins for 1 – 1.2kg and 1.05mins for 1.3kg and 1.15mins for 1.4-1.5kg.

Perfectly cooked chicken.

Homemade Wholemeal Bread

Approx makes 1 x 500g loaf.

225g Strong White Bread Flour

225g Strong Wholemeal Bread Flour

75g Yeast

Pinch Salt

1 tablespoon clear honey

200ml warm water

*Sift flour into bowl, keep the wholemeal bits for later

*Add in the packet of yeast, pinch of salt

*Make a hole in the middle of the bowl then add the honey and warm water

*Mix together to form a smooth dough, if too dry just add more water

*Shape into a ball and place of a baking tray and prove using the Proving setting on Manual selection. For about 1 -1.5 hrs or until it has doubled in size.

*Once proved, make a few slashes in top with sharp knife then brush with little milk and sprinkle the leftover brown bits from wholemeal flour.

*Place on shelf level 2 in oven and fill the drip pan tray with ice cubes and place on shelf level 5, the ice cubes create steam and stops the crust from hardening too quickly.

*Select the automatic prgrammes and scroll to bread and press start.

*Let stand until cool or warm and serve with butter or prefered topping. Mmmmmmmm
