Classic Baked Chicken

This dish it quite quick and delicious.  I learned it from a friend, and was surprised it contains so much garlic it doesn't taste like it!  We can't deny, garlic adds delicious taste and aroma to the dishes, so if you are a fan of this, you will love this recipe!

Sometimes I prepare this a night before, and store in the fridge and its ready to be made the next day in case I have a busy day ahead. 

Classic Baked Chicken 


1 kilo and half chicken pieces like breast, thighs, legs, etc. - washed and dried
1 whole garlic head, mashed
5-6 tbsp of ketchup
Juice of 2 lemons


Heat oven to 200 degrees C.

Mash the garlic cloves with a little salt.  Place it in a big bowl, mix in the ketchup, lemon juice, oil.  Add the chicken pieces, and put in desired salt and pepper.  If you think you need to add anything extra, go ahead, based on your taste! :)  

Place the final product in a baking tray, preferably a little deep like a rectangular pirex tray.  Cover with aluminum foil, and bake it for around 40 minutes.  Uncover and broil to give a nice color.

Serve with rice, mashed potato, steamed veggies, fries, you name it!

Ricotta Tart with Strawberries

If you want to try and make a cheesecake without a crust, go ahead and try this delicious dish!  This recipe is super friendly and made of ricotta instead of cream cheese. Very light, and delicious for a tea party - or any party! Just use a blender, and done, you can go ahead and slice it.
Ricotta Tart with Strawberries
4 eggs
Juice of 1 lemon (06 tablespoons)
500g ricotta
250g cream without serum
1 can of condensed milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
200g of chopped strawberries

Beat the 6 first ingredients in blender and pour into a pan of 22cm in diameter (mine has a removable rim), only oiled (no need to flour) ...
Place the chopped strawberries and put in oven for 1 hour or until the toothpick test it and it comes out clean.
 Adding the strawberries
Just out of the oven
Allow it to cool and place it in the fridge for a minimum of 4-6 hours and serve.
TIP: If you do use the ring-shaped as I did, place a tray below it to avoid the risk of leaking and soiling your stove, and giving you a hell of a job after to wash ...
