We like having chicken in many ways and we do love this baked chicken so much. It is so fast to prepare and it took less than 40 minutes to be ready. I always thaw my frozen chicken in the refrigerator, early in the morning before we leave the house for work and school. Then in the afternoon, I will take out the chicken, prep and put in the oven to cook. While waiting for it to be done, I will run the laundry and prepare for dinner. So easy and smells marvelous too. Here is the recipe for this baked chicken.
2 chicken breast halves without skin, bone-in
2 potatoes, cut in 6 wedges (boiled for 10 minutes)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika/ chilli powder
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon parsley leaves (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
6-8 cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking pan with foil.
2.Place chicken breast in a bowl. Mix with garlic, chilli, onion, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper until well coated.
3. Place chicken breast, potatoes and cherry tomatoes in center of the pan.
4.Pour melted margarine over chicken and vegetables; sprinkle evenly with cheese and parsley leaves.
5.Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, stirring vegetables once halfway through cooking.
