Baked Chicken Breast with Roast Potatoes and Garlic

Posted 2014-11-12 by Kate Matefollow
I have always said I can't cook chicken. I am always so worried it won't be cooked inside so I overcook it. I made this recipe up from scratch 100% and it works, it's moist and definitely not overcooked.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time:50 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

1 chicken breast
5 tablespoons of tomato paste
3 tablespoons of thickened cream
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of chopped coriander
1/4 of a red onion finely diced
3 small potatoes washed and peeled
3 sprigs of rosemary
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
6 brocoli florets
6 carrot sticks
Extra rosemary sprigs to garnish

  • Preheat oven to 180ÂșC.
  • Line a baking dish or baking tray with alfoil.
  • Place chicken breast in the dish and season with salt and pepper rubbing it on both sides.

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste

  • Add tomato paste, garlic, onion, cream and coriander to a bowl and mix well.
  • Spoon sauce over the chicken making sure it is well covered.
  • Cut potatoes into quarters.
  • Tear the rosemary into smaller pieces.
  • Peel the cloves of garlic, cutting any large ones in half.
  • Add potatoes, garlic, rosemary and olive oil to a bowl.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss to coat the potatoes.

  • Toss potatoes and garlic with the olive oil and herbs

  • In another alfoil lined dish add potatoes, garlic and rosemary.
  • Place potatoes on the top shelf and the chicken breast on the bottom.
  • Cook for thirty minutes.
  • Take chicken out of the oven and cut in half.
  • The sauce on top will have dried out a little so spoon some more on top of each piece.

  • Sauce will dry out like this

  • Place chicken back into the oven and continue to cook for a further 20 minutes.
  • Steam the carrot and brocoli until desired softness is reached. 6 minutes is good for slightly soft.
  • Take chicken and potatoes from the oven and start to assemble on your plate.
  • Place one half of the chicken pieces on each plate.
  • Add half the carrots, half the brocoli and half the potatoes on each plate.
  • Add half the garlic too, some people like to eat it. For me I like to rub it on my potatoes.
  • Mix the leftover sauce still in the dish from the chicken, and spoon some over each piece of chicken.
  • Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and your done.
