I hope you all had a wonderful Easter yesterday! I cooked a nice meal yesterday and my timing wasn’t quite right on all of it and it was a little more hectic than I anticipated. Does that ever happen to you?
After yesterday’s chaos in the kitchen (I think it will take me all week to get it all cleaned up) I think something easy is just what the doctor ordered. This Easy Chicken recipe was given to me several years ago. I have no idea where it originally came from. It is easy and it is good. It’s so easy, I could take step-by-step photos!
Step 1: Cut up boneless, skinless chicken breasts into pieces and put in a lightly sprayed baking dish. I used 3 chicken breasts. The pan I used is a 2.2 quart glass dish. It’s smaller than a 9×13.
Step 2: Combine soy sauce, ketchup, honey and brown sugar and heat it up in the microwave. Thirty seconds on high should do it 🙂
Step 3: Pour sauce on top of the chicken pieces. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 30-45 minutes. The time really depends on how big your chicken pieces are and how much chicken you have. Add more time for bigger/more chicken.
Step 4: Remove from oven.
Step 5: Serve with rice. I like putting my chicken on top of rice and then adding extra sauce. Add a veggie on the side and you’ve got a meal!
1/4 c soy sauce
1/4 c ketchup
1/4 c honey
1/4 c brown sugar
What To Do
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut your chicken into pieces and put in a lightly sprayed baking dish.
Combine the first four ingredients in a bowl. Warm it up in the microwave (30 seconds on high!) then pour all over the chicken.
Bake the chicken for 30-45 minutes, adding more time if you have big pieces or a lot of chicken.
Remove from the oven and serve with rice and whatever else you want to eat.
YUM. This sauce is yummy. It’s also very adaptable if you are using less or more chicken. Just use equal amounts of each ingredient. 1/4 c is a good starting point. Sometimes I make extra sauce because I like to pour it all over my chicken and rice.
My recipe from Kim says to bake the chicken for 1 – 1.5 hours. That’s way too long for the size I cut my chicken pieces so be sure to adjust accordingly. Just keep an eye on it.
You can cook your rice and side dish while this is in the oven. How efficient is that?!
Everyone needs something easy to make, whether you’re recovering from making a not-so-easy meal or not. Isn’t there a song, Easy Like Sunday Morning? Well, now you’ve got Easy Like Monday Night. Guess it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, but you know what I mean, right?
