Gold'n Plump chicken patties

I created this new recipe for Gold’n Plump, to illustrate how versatile chicken really is. It’s a perfectly delicious choice for any meal…breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

I used Gold’n Plump Bacon & Cheddar Chicken Patties in this breakfast recipe. So good! That bacon and cheesy cheddar combo was an excellent flavor complement to the sweetly spiced maple glaze that gets brushed onto the patties in the skillet.

You can find Gold’n Plump Chicken Patties in the freezer section of your grocery store. Made from premium quality all natural boneless skinless chicken thighs (my favorite chicken pieces…moist and extra flavorful!), they come in three varieties:

  • Original
  • Bacon & Cheddar
  • Mushroom & Swiss

The frozen chicken patties weigh 1/3 lb. each and are vacuum-sealed and packaged very neatly, six to a box. Each patty is separated by a piece of parchment paper, making it quick and easy to grab just one or two for a small meal. The chicken patties can go straight from the freezer to the skillet or grill, without needing to thaw first. It just couldn’t be any easier!

Spiced Maple Chicken Burgers with Sweet Potato and Apple Hash

We still have a good stash of apples stored away from our afternoon at the orchard, and I embrace every opportunity to cook and bake with them. This wonderful fall season is fleeting, sadly, and I aim to enjoy every last ray of sunshine and bite of juicy apple available.

The side of hash in this recipe is comprised of chopped sweet potatoes, onion, and green pepper, and studded with nuggets of fresh apple. It’s sweet and savory combined, with a warm sprinkling of chili powder, cumin, and smoked paprika to bring it all together.

The maple chicken burgers are cooked in the same skillet, following the hash, leaving you with one less pan to clean. Slathered in a gently spiced maple syrup glaze, beautifully caramelized in the skillet during the final minutes of cooking, the chicken patties are gorgeous, with outstanding flavor. Topped with an optional poached or fried egg, you have yourself one heckuva breakfast plate.

for the sweet potato and apple hash:

Heat oven to 200°.

In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the sweet potatoes, onion, and green pepper, and then sprinkle with the small bowl of spice mixture. Add the water and stir to combine. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are crisp-tender and water has almost evaporated, stirring once or twice. Add cubed apple to skillet, turn heat up to medium-high, and continue cooking, uncovered, for 4 to 6 minutes or until sweet potato is tender and beginning to brown, stirring only occasionally. Remove hash to a 9″ x 13″ pan and place in the oven to keep warm.

In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, chili powder, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Set aside.

Return same skillet (no need to clean it first) to stovetop over medium heat. Add frozen Gold’n Plump Bacon & Cheddar Chicken Patties to pan and cook for about 9 minutes total, flipping once, until both sides are nicely browned. Then brush tops of chicken patties with half of the spiced maple syrup, flip, and cook for 2 minutes. Brush the tops of chicken patties again with the remaining spiced maple syrup, flip, and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove chicken patties to individual plates and serve with sweet potato and apple hash, garnished with fresh parsley. If desired, add poached or fried eggs to complete your breakfast plates.
