“Bag” an all in one chicken recipe ;-p

12 Mar

Or you can just bag it because you are lazy.. and tired, like me. It is my new “happy bag”. Oven roasting bags…. salute to the person that thought of this nifty little trick!! It literally “bags” all the flavour of your chicken and veggies that you throw in together. Between the working, exercising, cleaning… and then cooking, I have tried to find quicker and cleaner ways to make supper. Also, I was cheating because the flavouring came in one tiny little bag, BUT, if you cant find this product, I have worked on ingredients that you can toss together without having to buy the spice sachet.

When looking for a roasting bag, make sure it actually says “oven roasting bag” on the packet. Basically, all you do is toss your chicken into the bag, sprinkle over a bit of olive oil and toss the spices from the sachet over the contents, shake and close off and place in the oven… nifty eh? So, first off, the ingredients, if you don’t have a flavoured sachet.

Spices

2 teaspoons of cumin

2 teaspoons of dried thyme

2 teaspoons of chicken spice

2 teaspoons of dried chives

2 pinches of salt

1 teaspoon of dried rosemary

Extra ingredients

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 lemon, cut in half

black pepper for seasoning

30 ml of dry white wine

2 teaspoons of crushed garlic

 

1 pack of chicken thighs/ chicken quarters / chicken drumsticks

1 courgette, roughly chopped

1 onion/red onion roughly chopped

2 handfuls of french beans

Preheat your oven to 160 C. Make sure your oven racks are spaced out properly as the bag will expand. Toss all your ingredients into the bag,  close it and spread it out in a tray.

Place in the oven, cook for 45 minutes and ta da!!!! Enjoy with lovely, fluffy jasmine rice.
