Baked Seasoned Chicken with Veggies and Rice

I don’t really know what has possessed me of  late to start cooking all over again but I have to say it’s not a bad thing.  Here’s another quick and dirty recipe for those of you out there who have little time to worry about preparation, marinating and cooking.

I have to send a big shout out to my dad for this recipe and to mom for making me buy the Vegeta seasoning last November when I was back in Sydney for Anna and Ben’s wedding!  I’ve improvised a little; as one tends to do but it tasted good none the less!

Baked Seasoned Chicken with Baked Brinjal and & White Oyster Mushrooms on Rice

What you will need to make the Baked Seasoned Chicken with Baked Brinjal & White Oyster Mushrooms on Rice are the following ingredients:

  • Chicken thigh
  • 1/4 Lemon
  • Virgin olive oil
  • Brinjal
  • White Oyster Mushrooms (as many as you desire)
  • Chili powder (optional)
  • Cooked white rice
  • Sundried tomatoes to garnish (optional)
  • Vegeta (see below)

Vegeta Seasoning – Available from most delicatessens

Do note here there is no need for salt, there’s plenty of that from the Vegeta* and the drippings will self sauce your mushrooms and brinjal during the cooking process (see told you it was easy).

*If you don’t have Vegeta you can substitute the seasoning with lemon pepper seasoning. 

Now time for some action:

  1. Debone the chicken thigh (optional) and score the chicken with a knife
  2. Sprinkle 2-3 teaspoons of vegeta on each side of the thigh, ensuring it is covered, then set aside
  3. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  4. Cut brinjal into 2-3 cm thick pieces
  5. Line baking tray with foil and spray liberally olive oil and lay brinjal over the olive oil
  6. Sprinkle chili powder over brinjal
  7. Lay white oyster mushrooms over brinjal
  8. Lay chicken thigh over the mushrooms and squeeze 1/4 lemon over chicken
  9. Cook in oven for 20-25mins

And you’re done.

  1. Carefully lay brinjal around bed of rice
  2. Lay mushrooms over the rice then lay chicken on top of mushrooms
  3. Garnish with sun-dried tomatoes

Now with dinner out of the way it’s time to cook desert: Nutella and Banana Roti.  This is a variation of a desert that I picked up while I was in Paris in 2005.

Nutella and Banana Roti

To make this sinful dish you’re gonna need to get your hands on the following:

  • Instant Roti Prata / Crepes (available at your local supermarket/Asian grocery)
  • Nutella
  • Bananas

Now time for some action:

  1. Spread the nutella generously over the frozen prata
  2. Thinly slice banana into the sea of nutella
  3. Take a second piece of prata and cover the original piece to make a sandwich
  4. Press the two pieces firmly together
  5. Cook over fry pan (dry fry) until golden brown and crispy

What better way to spend the evening at home.. relaxing with a hearty meal after running around playing tennis for 2 hours!

Bon Appétit - Sidney
