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!
