“NOTHING short of BRILLIANT” Chinet’s new revolutionary Bakeware is!
It IS EVERYTHING we ALL have been waiting for too! 😉
Hands up, who has brought their favorite casserole dish or baking pan to a party, only to find that the dish is never returned or lost too? Remember, I can “see” you and that’s A LOT of hands, TRUE! 😉
Before I continue, please enjoy this “very entertaining” video explaining what Chinet Bakeware CAN do!
“WOW! I’ll have one or more of what she has! YOU? “ 😉
I CAN say I “ABSOLUTELY” loved cooking and baking with these products!
I chose to make a savory dish (savory meaning “pleasing in taste“) with the Chinet Bakeware Small Oval Pan (W 184mm x L 235mm x D 51mm; 71/4 inches x 9 1/4 inches X ~2 inches) and a dessert dish with the Chinet Bakeware Small Square Pan
(W 203mm x L 203mm x D 54mm; ~8 inches X ~8 inches x ~2 inches)
“What did you like?” I “hear” you say? Remember I can “still” hear you! lol

* no need to grease or oil spray as both the Chinet Bakeware Small Oval Pan and the Chinet Bakeware Small Square Pan are non-stick. 🙂

Ingredients — Baked Chicken & Whole Grain Penne with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Garlic and Spinach
8 ounces Whole Grain Penne (I love Barilla Whole Grain Pasta! 🙂 )
1 chicken breast, skinless
2 teaspoons garlic paste
3 cups milk
4 ounces brown mushrooms, finely, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes; oil packed, drained, finely diced
1/4 cup frozen spinach
1 3/4 cups of your favorite cheese; preferable 1/2 grated, 1/2 shredded; I used Parmesan Reggiano and Peccorino 🙂
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 cup plus 2 level tablespoons all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
Pre heat oven to 180C. (350F)
In a large pot of salted water, prepared penne according to instructions; drain, remove. Do not rinse.
To make things easier for me, I like to cook the pasta til “al dente”; reserving one cup of pasta water before draining and “refresh” the pasta as soon as I want to use it. 😉
In a small non-stick fry pan, add frozen spinach and mushrooms; cook until desired doneness; set aside.
Drain oil-packed sun dried tomatoes; rinse until water; drain well; set aside.
I enjoy “fresh” ingredients is best ie spinach and garlic, but I also like to use up what I have on hand too! Feel free to substitute for your personal preference. 😉
Cut chicken breast in half horizontally; season with salt and pepper.
Heat fry pan, then add oil; cook chicken breast for about 3 – 5 minutes each side; remove; set aside.
Cut cooked chicken breast in half horizontally and thinly slice crosswise.
“ASSEMBLE, ASSEMBLE, ASSEMBLE!” 😉 🙂
Heat a deep fry pan or pot, melt butter; add garlic and flour whisking constantly for about 1 minute.
Gradually add milk, whisking frequently; bring to a simmer.
Add cooked spinach, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes; cook for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
In pasta pot, reheat 1 cup of pasta water; refresh pasta, drain.
Add sliced chicken and pasta; salt and pepper to personal taste.
Place mixture into Chinet Bakeware Small Ovan Pan; top with cheese.
Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving! ENJOY! 🙂
I reserved 1/2 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top. 🙂
* both the Chinet Bakeware Small Oval Pan and the Chinet Bakeware Small Square Pan baked foods evenly. 🙂
* the Chinet Bakeware range also comes in a Large Oval Pan Pack (W 178mm x L 279mm x D 51mm; 7 inches X ~11 inches X 2 inches); includes 3 pans and three lids.

I don’t know about YOU, but some nights I am “more than a tad tired” and simply don’t feel like spending time cleaning pans. (i.e. after making a roast) These Chinet Bakeware pans would be PERFECT, TRUE! Don’t thank me for recommending them to you, but think HOW much time you will save to do the things YOU may want to do! 🙂 🙂 🙂
For dessert, I wanted something “like grandma used to do.”
Does anyone else “think” it was FATE, this recipe got chosen today too? 😉
I “very slightly” adapted to recipe to substitute Xylitol for the sugar.
I used self-rising flour and thought the finely chopped pecans were ‘perfect” for this cake too!
Is there anything you DIDN’T like? I “hear” you say? lol
Honestly, I could NOT find anything negative about these WONDERFUL products, TRUE!
The words of my review, my “PASSION AND EXCITEMENT” in sharing these products are my own and was not swayed because Chinet Australia chose to send me these products to trial too!
You CAN “bring a plate” to a mate’s and ENJOY not only what you made (these products make for beautiful presentations too! 🙂 ) but are GREAT for transport and are EASILY reheated, leftovers stored or frozen, TRUE!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this revolutionary Chinet Bakeware range and hope I too can “inspire” you to “create a plate for your mate” OR for yourself and your family too!
FOLLOW UP NOTE
The cake came out SO light and moist “JUST” like Grandma used to do! I “miss” those days and her cooking and baking in the kitchen, wearing her “ironed” apron like in those days they used to do!
I loved the step by step photos on the original recipe! It was one of the things (in addition to the photo) that did “inspire” me! 😉 😉 🙂 🙂

What would be YOUR first dish you would like to cook or bake with using these new Chinet Bakeware?
