As I was making our dinner, I realized that I do not bake chicken enough! It is the perfect “quick and easy” meal when you don’t feel like standing in the kitchen too long.
This recipe can take on so many variations! Throw chicken breasts (I used breast tenderloins for this recipe, and they cook even faster!) into a glass baking dish. Top with whatever ingredients you enjoy (a few suggestions are listed below). Set the oven at 350 degrees, and bake for around 30-40 minutes. Use an oven thermometer to be sure your meat is properly cooked.. then enjoy!
It only took me 5-10 minutes to get the ingredients into the oven, and then I had 30 minutes to do whatever! I threw together a quick side dish (diced tomatoes and avocados in lemon juice and olive oil), and just put my feet up for a while. It was nice!
This idea can take so many forms! Here are a few ideas that I plan to try in the coming weeks…
A Few Variations
garlic, salt, pepper, and your favorite seasoning
chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder (for a southwestern twist!)
Paleo barbecue sauce
onions, basil, oregano (top with hot marinara once it’s done!)
lemon juice, salt, and pepper
tomatoes (even just a can of Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes would be good!), mushrooms, and pepper
What else? If you have ideas, please share!
