Lazy Man’s Dinner: Baked Chicken Breast

Apparently my body is taking the fish without troubles, so today it is time to take it up another level, let’s try chicken.


  • 1 big slab of chicken breast, 200g maybe
  • Some enoki mushrooms
  • Some broccoli
  • Some peeled baby carrots
  • A few cherry tomatoes
  • Half a lemon for the juice
  • Salt, pepper, olive oil

As you can see, most of the ingredients are the same as what I used for the steamed fish. Only today the fish is replaced with chicken, spinach is replaced with broccoli and baby carrots.


  •  Cut and wash broccoli and enoki mushrooms.
  • Wash baby carrots and chicken breast.
  • Marinate chicken breast with salt and pepper.
  • Prepare aluminium foil into a container.
  • Place enoki mushroom as base, place chicken breast on top of enoki mushroom, place broccoli and baby carrots around chicken breast.
  • Slice cherry tomatoes into halves and place on top of chicken breast.

  • Squeeze half the lemon and let the juice flow all over the chicken breast. Drizzle olive oil all over the mess.
  • Place the whole thing into oven, set to 180 deg C.

  • Go back to room and watch 3 Ah Niu‘s MV while simultaneously blog about this recipe, or otherwise wait 20 to 25 minutes if you do not fancy watching Malaysian Pop. Malaysian Pop rocks!

  • Turn off oven, then let the cooked stuff cool down for a bit.
  • Publish the blog post.
  • Eat.

Baked Chicken Breast

I have to admit, I made a mistake with steaming the fish with spinach yesterday. The spinach releases water when cooking, it sort of drowns out whatever lemon and tomato juice that I had going. Not to mention when steaming, water might drip from the lid onto the plate. In the end I had fish soaked in almost tasteless watery sauce.

No such problem with broccoli and baking in oven, I just tested the sauce, the flavor is awesomesauceness 😉

  1. I’ll try your nice recipe but will definitely use thigh or drumstick. I dislike breasts as they are sooooo dry! Eat until choke.. cough cough uwek.

  2. Hi RealGunners! This is my second time here. So you do simple cooking I see. And you are cooking healthy. To be honest, I am not a fan of chicken breast. I prefer the thigh, drumsticks or wings (in that order of preference). I wish that my brother would take the trouble to do the same as you 🙂

    • Hi! Thanks for dropping by. I am lazy, so I always try to cut corners, that’s why called lazy man’s meal 😀 . I prefer breast not because they are healthy, but because they are boneless, easy to eat LOL! 😀

  3. lovely!! i love chicken breast (and all the time i ask for chicken breast or ribs, no thigh or drumstick for me) and roast it with veggie, that look just so awesome!!

  4. Lovely. We often bake or roast too, chicken…but I’d want the skin, nice and crispy. I know…I know… I always tell myself all the fat would have melted and gone to the bottom of the roasting pan already. Hehehehehehe!!!

  5. How’s your project going on? haha, ok, I’m 8, sorry..
    Oohh, baked chicken? I like.. But I usually roast chicken.. Actually I think they are the same, coz both put in oven..

    • Actually I don’t understand the difference between bake and roast too. The project, 50 words per day, so maybe need to wait another 100 days hahaha..

  6. Very healthy food again. All the goodness of the natural taste of the food enhanced by salt and pepper only. Nice! Can’t wait to see what meat you will reintroduce to your body and your healthy cooking way.
