How Yum! Baked Chicken & Veg

Don’t you just hate dry chicken? I hate it…super duper hate dry chicken! Especially after you bake it, it comes out sooo dry, ugh! Well, there’s a trick and it’s kinda simple but mostly weird and I am wondering if I am late to the party once again? I dunno, you tell me. 

I add 1 cup of water from one corner of the dish to make a nice gravy and keep the chicken moist. IT WORKS! The chicken stays moist while being slightly submerged in the juices. The gravy is beautiful on rice as well. 

Now thats solved! Let’s talk about EASY AND YUMMY BAKED CHICKEN!

No prep work except throwing everything in the pan, mix well and bake. Clean time is basically zero. I hope you are beaming with joy as much as I am. A mix of colorful veggies just makes this whole dish amazing.

Prep Time : 3 mins (depending on how long it takes you to clean chicken and gather spices)

Cook Time : 45 mins in the oven

Ingredients :

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 cup sliced zuchini 
  • 1 half beet, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tspn parsley
  • 2 tspn chilli powder
  • couple of green peppers, optional
  • salt and black pepper

Recipe :

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Get a large enough pan to hold the chicken and veg. Throw everything in and mix it well. From a corner pour in 1 cup of water. Don’t mix it or else the spices will wash off the chicken. Walk carefully to your oven and slide in the pan. Close the oven and come back 45 mins later. Lay the chicken and veg over white rice. Pour some gravy over it all and enjoy your day. Make sure to love yourself and look after yourself.  You are the biggest project you will ever work on.

Those strong beans are frozen, yes. I buy in bulk then freeze them. Freezing vegetables is a good way of storing when you buy bulk. No it does not harm the nutrients.

OK, we ate this so quickly after coming out of the oven, I didn’t have a chance to take a photo. But here is a photo of what it looked liked in between plating a meal for two.
