Chicken Recipes: The lazy baked chicken breast recipes

Chicken Recipes: Chicken Breast Recipes

Sometimes, I’m too lazy to cook but I do not want to eat out so, I’d make my lazy baked chicken breast meal. I’d have to say it is probably one of my ‘dump everything into the dish and bake’ sort of meal. Simple. Easy. And you get a wholesome baked chicken breast meal within 30 minutes or so.

The best part about this chicken recipes is that it can also be the base for a chicken pie if you slap on a pre-made pastry dough on top and baked it together with the chicken. Since I’m in lazy mode and I don’t have packaged, ready made pastry dough with me, I didn’t bother. In the end, this dish is the ultimate in comfort food especially if it’s a cold rainy day (or a snowy day, whichever part of the world you are in). Heck, it could even be hot and humid, and this would also be a great meal!

Okay, I know I am building up all the hype but not showing anything for it…so, this is the end result:

The chicken breast is succulent and juicy and pack full of flavours while the gravy is absolutely amazing! You can serve it as it is or as a side dish to rice or as the main dish with salad and potatoes. I just ate it as it is and it is SO good, we finished the whole casserole dish of baked chicken breast within a day!

Alright, let’s get to the making of this easy and yet delicious recipe:

Baked Chicken Breast Recipes



Ingredients

2 large pieces of chicken breast meat, cut into several thick pieces / quarter chicken chopped into small pieces

3 brown mushrooms, quartered

1 large carrot, cut into chunks

1 tbsp mixed beans, soaked

3 onions, peeled and quartered

5 cherry tomatoes (halved) / 1 large tomato, sliced thinly

2 hard boiled eggs, sliced thinly

2 large potatoes, sliced thinly (optional, I didn’t put in any as I don’t happen to have any potatoes on hand)

1 cup frozen peas, thawed

2 sausages, sliced

Seasoning

3 tbsp dark soy sauce

1 tbsp fish sauce (optional)

3 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp black pepper

1/2 cup unsweetened soya milk

2 tbsp chicken stock powder / 1/2 cup chicken broth

Instructions

1. Season the chicken breast meat/ chicken pieces with the dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic powder and black pepper.

2. Place the chicken into a casserole dish and arrange the rest of the ingredients on top of it. Like this:

3. In a bowl, dissolve the chicken stock powder (if using this instead of chicken broth) with some warm water. Then add the chicken stock and the soya milk to the dish.

4. Bake the dish, covered in foil, for about 30 minutes at 250C or until the chicken is cooked through.If you use chicken pieces, then it is best that you bake for 15 minutes, turn the chicken and then continue baking. It is easier if it is boneless chicken breast meat. I have a mixture of both so in between, I did take it out to turn the chicken before I continue baking it.

The gravy is really good. The soya milk is actually a replacement for cream to give the gravy a richer texture. Since this dish is supposed to be healthy and wholesome, I used soya milk and it is just as good. If you like a thicker gravy, just add some cornstarch or flour to the sauces before baking.

    Nice recipe, but those photos are AWESOME! Did you take them yourself? If so, well done! You should post them in one of the food groups on flickr or something.

    A very flavorful sounding meal – no wonder it is comforting! :)

    Wow – tons of ingredients. Your dish looks a lot heartier than my version of an easy 30 minute baked chicken recipe. The other day I just dumped some pasta sauce and cheese with some boneless skinless chicken breasts in a pan and let it bake.

    seems pretty simple. btw, if i replace the peas (i don’t like peas) with potato cubes, does it blend?

    Doesn’t sound too lazy to us! It’s so perfect for a Sunday. And you really got a lot of good things going on in that dish. Nice way to clean out the fridge over the weekend.

    Xin: you can cook it stove-top too. Just heat up a heavy stock pot, dump everything in and let it simmer over medium heat till cooked. Just remember to stir occasionally so it won’t burn. It will probably take longer than the oven to cook but hey, it will taste the same.

    Toni: Yep, I’ve been experimenting food photography so I took my own pictures. Aww…thanks for the compliments. I am thinking of posting to one of those food photography sites. Maybe one day.

    HoneyB: Thanks, you should try it out!

    Jessie: heheh, ‘lazy’ meals have to be tasty too or else The Food Critic may not touch it.

    Hillary: It is the ingredients that gives it flavours but I say it is simple because I just dump it all in and let the oven do the job. No sauteeing, no stir frying, no fuss.

    Annna: yes, it is alright to use potato cubes. I would have added potatoes if I had some with me.

    Duo dishes: Yes, I was actually clearing up the carrots and best of all, it is pretty healthy too.
