Ms. Arlene, who blogs over at Healthy Lifestyle, with her post: Fish Nuggets

A plateful of fish nuggets like that won't last long in my household, even if there are only three of us here at home most of the time. Eating healthy food is not the only way to a healthy lifestyle, but it's a great step. Ms. Arlene's Healthy Lifestyle blog tackles not only about food but also some of her life choices that can ultimately lead her to continue on practicing the healthy way of living. Why don't we go on over and give her some more encouragements, shall we?

My post for today is: Just Chicken.
yeah, so original. lol.

  • marinated whole chicken (cut into serving pieces, and preferably marinated overnight)
  • marinade: soy sauce, salt, pepper, mixed herbs (thyme, rosemary, basil, oregano, sage and marjoram), spanish paprika, crushed garlic, coconut vinegar (you can substitute with calamansi or lime)

  • Put chicken in pot together with marinade and about 1 1/2 cups of water.
  • Let boil/simmer until just cooked through (mine was about 15mins).
  • Transfer to an oven-proof container and sprinkle chicken with additional mixed herbs, spanish paprika, soy sauce and vegetable/olive oil.
  • Bake until brown and skin is crispy.
  • Serve hot with fave dip. Or with rice. Your choice.

Actually,  you can skip the first part of the procedure (the "boiling" part) and just directly bake your chicken; it would have taken a much longer time to cook, of course. Still, I think you can get the same result. I just like "boiling" them since I like to use the liquid afterwards: I add in some veggies, or it becomes the base for a soup.

Had that with rice and some veggies that day. :)

Had more than enough chicken from fast food chains, I don't cook chicken at home anymore. But I would like to try your recipe, the chicken looks yummy and crispy, I thought it's fried, problem is I don't have an oven...hehe. ;)

Oooh I love how you plated the dish! Naku, I really need to learn how to plate the dishes I cook. I am hoping I could have my own lightbox or maybe a table set up in our terrace to get most of the light.

Sometimes a simple chicken just hits the spot :) That one looks so satisfying.

I'm sharing a video on How To Get Your Family To Eat Real Food, 5 Whole Food Desserts Your Family Will Love, and some yummy Homemade Chocolate Banana Power Bars. Happy Friday!

I'm sure the mixed herbs that you use for your chicken makes it endearingly delicious! And oh, I love nibbling on fish nuggets, too, especially, when watching a movie.

Chicken maybe pretty basic but the way it's cooked makes a difference :-) Yours look YUM and the presentation is great!

@Ms Oggi: here's your rice, lol.

@Angi: oo nga, ano...hehehe.

@i♥pinkc00kies: oh yes, i agree!

@Jenn: i don't have a lightbox...dinadala ko lang ung food malapit sa door. lol. you plate your dishes quite well!

@France: love the posts that you shared!

@Tetcha: i want my sons to be familiar with different herbs, and that's why i try to incorporate them in our dishes. some of them they're not crazy about (like the cumin), though. lol.

@Iska: almost everyone likes chicken indeed!
