Baked Chicken with Roasted Vegetables

Makes 4-5 servings

1 kilo Chicken breast and thighs (reserve legs and wings for the next recipe)

2 tsps Minced garlic

2 tsps Minced onion

1 bunch Lemongrass, cut in half and tied together

2 tsps Roughly chopped red bell pepper

3/4 tsp Salt

3/4 tsp Ground pepper

3/4 tsps Dried rosemary

3-4 Tbsps Olive oil

  1. Arrange all the chicken parts on a baking dish. Poke the chicken parts with a knife so the flavors will penetrate even the insides of the meat.
  2. Top with the garlic, onion, lemongrass, bell pepper, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Drizzle with olive oil and rub the aromatics throughout the chicken. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Bake at 375F for 1 hour. Check for doneness by cutting a small portion from the thickest part. If chicken is still pink from the inside, return to oven and bake for additional 10-15 minutes. Bake the chicken for 10 more minutes with the vegetables.

1/4 kilo Marble potatoes

1/2 tsp Minced garlic

1/2 tsp Minced onion

1/2 tsp Dried rosemary

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Ground pepper

2 Tbsps Olive oil

  1. Cut the carrots and potatoes in uniform size to ensure even cooking. Place the vegetables on a baking dish and add the garlic, onion, rosemary, salt, pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes. Add to the chicken and bake for another 10 minutes.
