Quick Chicken Dinner

I am very fond of meals that get cooked largely in the oven, so when I found this chicken recipe on a blog I love, called Baked Bree, I quickly added this dish to my rather large and unwieldly “recipes-to-try” pile.  Some recipes have been languishing in that pile for years and will likely never get made.  This recipe, however, is so easy and yummy-sounding, I got to it rather quickly.  It is similar to the Soy-Dijon marinade I posted some time back but even simpler and possibly more kid friendly due to the addition of honey (wonder if it will work with agave nectar?).  I served it with a side of roasted asparagus with a balsamic vinaigrette and basmati rice with almonds.  Ria helped me make the marinade the day before and partly because of that and partly because this is just that “like-able” a dish, she enjoyed it a great deal.

Bree’s blog is inspiring and full of mouth-watering and beautiful photographs.  I wish I had her skill with the camera and her patience to take step-by-step photos of recipes.

I love this recipe.  No fuss. No muss.  Simple everyday food.  Thanks Bree!
