I’m back!!! Did you miss me? I sure did miss our interaction, a lot! We just got back from our summer vacay from the USA and the whole family is super jet-lagged. LOL! But the break from cyber-world was liberating as always. It was a good avenue to recharge, spend quality time with family, and I had some time to read a cookbook or two to be inspired. 🙂
I know I’ve been away for more than 3 weeks. That’s because we just moved into our new place and I’ve been busy with the renovation, packing, and unpacking boxes after boxes. I really don’t like moving. I realised that during our move, I was more worried about my dinnerware and cookware being misplaced or damaged than anything else. So much so, I actually hand-carried some of my precious cookware! Some friends thinks I’m a little crazy. Haha!
Because I was preparing for my move, I had many of my kitchenware carefully and securely packed. So I had very little to work with. As such, our meals needed to be simple with minimal ingredients and preparation. I also didn’t have a lot of time at hand to be puttering around the kitchen so the oven was my best friend.
This meal was made all in one big mixing bowl and baked in a pan all at once. Blanch some greens or throw a salad together and you’ll get a complete dinner that looks like you worked all day in the kitchen. In fact, you can even mix up all the ingredients on your baking tray. Just remember to line your baking tray so that it makes clean up easy. If you are into crispy skin chicken that stays moist in the inside, and super flavourful potatoes, then you should not pass up on this ridiculously easy recipe.
