Today’s recipe is Asian inspired. Yes, sometimes we eat non Tex-Mex meals too 😛 Truth is there’s a new Ramen restaurant near us, though we’ve had the opportunity to stop by, we just haven’t. So, I figured that it would be nice to make some ramen, until we make it into the restaurant.
The recipe was super easy to make and doesn’t require much experience. I cut the chicken into small pieces and seasoned it with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes to taste. Then, I let it sit in the refrigerator for a few minutes before cooking.
So, I have said it before, in our home I cook (almost) everyday. Though there are times when I don’t know what or want to cook. On days like these I used to run to the grocery store and grab a rotisserie chicken. Being the DIYer that I am, one day I said no more – since this baked chicken recipe has been a favorite.
I spotted the whole chickens while shopping for meats one day. At that moment a light bulb went off in my head – are you visualizing this?! I pulled out my phone and searched for whole chicken recipes on Pinterest. (While most people ‘Google’ their searches, I turn to Pinterest for mine, 90% of the time).
I found many recipes, so I grabbed a chicken and took off running, ok not quite but you get the point. Since that day, I have made my own baked chickens.
Let’s get to the baked chicken recipe.
It took me about five to ten minutes to prep. Once I gathered all the ingredients, I patted the chicken dry with paper towels and seasoned under the skin.
