Remove the chicken melt from its packaging.
Oven: Preheat oven to 190ºC / Gas Mark 5. Rub an oven dish and one side of some baking paper with butter or olive oil; this prevents the chicken melt from sticking. Place chicken melt in the oven dish. Season with salt & pepper or with one of our Hopkins Seasonings. Cover chicken melts with baking paper and cook in oven for 50-55 minutes. Turn occasionally.
Finally (and this is important), after the chicken melt is cooked, leave it rest for at least 5 minutes before you cut it or all the juice you made the effort to keep in will come running right out, resulting in a flavourless, rubbery mass. When it comes to a juicy chicken melt, patience is a virtue.
**THESE COOKING INSTRUCTIONS ARE GUIDELINES ONLY**
THIS PRODUCT MUST BE COOKED THOROUGHLY PRIOR TO CONSUMPTION
If you have a temperature probe then use it to check chicken melt is above 75°C.
If 75°C is not reached then cook for further 3 mins and check temperature again. Repeat this process until 75°C is reached.
