Oven Roasted Chicken

Gil and I had to run errands last night and I figured that we would be gone for about an hour. I wanted to roast some chicken breasts while we were gone, so I combined a couple of my favorite spices with oil and vinegar for a marinade and brushed it on the chicken. I set the oven at 250 so they wouldn't burn. I also put some rice on in my rice cooker.

Oven Roasted Chicken

3 chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Combine ingredients and brush all over each chicken breast. Bake at 250 for about an hour.

It makes a small amount of marinade, but it is plenty for 3 chicken breasts:

Brush onto chicken. I lined the pan with foil for easier clean-up:

I put 1 cup of rice in 1-1/2 cups water with 2 tablespoons of butter in a rice cooker. Then I covered it and turned it on. It will turn off when the rice is ready.

Gil stir fried some cabbage when we got home. It took about 6 or 7 minutes. He seasoned it with Cavender's Greek Seasoning, salt, and pepper:

The chicken was very moist, juicy, and flavorful.

This was a healthy and delicious meal which we prepared with very little effort.
