DIY : One Pan Baked Chicken and Vegetables


Hey hey hey!
Lately I have been watching a lot of this Tasty video that everyone keeps posting on Facebook and I came across this particular video which was showing how to prepare a "One Pan Bake Chicken and Vegetable" meal and from the way it looks, it seems pretty easy to me. 

So, I went out to do some grocery shopping and as most of you know that I don't really like cooking but thank God for an oven at home anything is possible now! Got home after my workout and prepared this mouth-watering meal with Roy.

So here's what you need :
 2 Chicken Breasts, skinless and boneless
Long Beans (Any vegetable of your choice)
2 Carrots 
2 Potatoes
2 Cloves of Garlic, diced
Rosemary
Paprika
Salt (For taste)
Pepper(For taste)
Olive Oil 
Cheddar Cheese


Instructions :

1). Pre-heat your oven to 200°C . Cover your pan with aluminium foil.

2). Chop up all the carrots and potatoes into cubes and boil them for a good 3-5 minutes depending on how soft you want them to be. 
Boil the long beans for 1 minute. 
As for the garlic, just peel them and diced them.

3).  Clean the chicken breasts and cut off any excess skin or fats. 

4). Gently with a knife, make a few cuts on the top and bottom of the chicken breasts.
This will help the meat absorb the oil and other flavours and seasoning.

5). Place the carrots, potatoes and long beans along the pan as you like and place the chicken breasts at the center of the pan.

6). Add some rosemary, paprika, salt and pepper for taste and also spread the diced garlics on the top and bottom of the chicken breasts. Drizzle a bit of Olive Oil and with your hands, gently massage the chicken breasts to mix up the spices and seasoning so it absorbs into the meat.

7). Then bake everything in the oven at  200°C for 35 minutes.

8). Once its done, you can finish it off with some grated cheddar cheese and then serve!

This portion is meant for 2 people so if you plan to make a bigger portion, just add more chicken breasts and repeat the process. 

Simple and healthy. I love how when the chicken breasts are baked, it allows the fat from the meat to melt and it gives flavour to the vegetables and it smells heavenly!
This is definitely one of my clean eating recipes I would definitely stick to for a while.
Its not oily at all and its really easy to make!

If you guys tried this, lemme know how yours went or maybe even share some healthy recipes with me! Would love to hear what you guys do to stay healthy.
