Baked Chicken With Home Made Sauce



Through blog hopping, I learned quite a number of cooking method. Iwei's Little House prompted me an idea to cook this dish.



Baked Chicken Set
Serves 2


Ingredients:

2 chicken thighs, cleaned and fat removed
3 chad potatoes
12 cherry tomatoes
a dash of mix herbs
a dash of extra virgin olive oil

Marinate the chicken with:

a pinch of salt
a dash of grounded black pepper
1 tbsp of McCORMICK Classic Onion & Mushroom Gravy Mix
2 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 tbsp of light soy sauce
3 cloves of grated garlic
a dash of mixed herbs

Methods:


Step 1

1. Marinate the chicken thighs and cover the bowl in a zip bag. Leave it for 6 hours in the fridge.

2. Clean the chad potatoes and quarter it. Cook it in a pot of boiling water (salt added).

3. Preheat oven for 200 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes. On a baking tray, wrap up the chicken with aluminum foil. Bake the chicken for 30 minutes under 200 degree Celsius.


Step 4

4. Arrange the potatoes with the cut area facing downwards. This will enhance the absorption of chicken essence. Throw the cherry tomatoes at the top. Pour extra virgin olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with mixed herbs.

5. Next is to cover up with the aluminum foil. Continue baking for another 30 minutes under 200 degree Celsius.

6. When it's done, divide the chicken, potatoes and cherry tomatoes onto 2 plates. Pour over the chicken sauce on top of chicken and potatoes.

How Does It Taste:

With this cooking method, the chicken is baked to perfection. The meat is very tender and juicy. The aromatic herbs enhance the overall taste. The chad potatoes absorb the chicken essence and become so flavorful and soft. Really yummy dish... a must try!!

I've actually cooked something similar to this. But the chicken tasted quite bland, guess I didn't marinate it long enough. Would try to marinate longer next time.

Yours look so delicious! I wanna try! :)

Penang Tua Pui, make appointment with me then. LOL!

Sugar Bean, marinate the chicken longer to let it fully absorb the sauce.
