August Chicken

I called this dish 'August chicken' first of all because most of the vegetables I used are harvested in August. Another reason is that I came up with this recipe just this August. It is definitely nothing special, maybe I cannot even say that it is my recipe. But I've made chicken this way already for four times and all these times the dish was a success. I don't even have time to take a photo as it is eaten so quickly. Roasted onions and garlic gives such a lovely flavour, fresh thyme and sage just strenthens. And soya sauce and mushroom juice softens the chicken!!! Easy and delicious dinner every time!!!

What we need:

1 chicken, cut into pieces
2 big onions ( it looks much better if you use small onions, then don't cut into smaller pieces)
8 cloves of garlic
1 red pepper
100 gr of mushrooms
4 tbsp of soya sauce
fresh thyme
fresh sage
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil
zucchini (optional)
potatoes (optional as sometimes I serve the dish with rice)
2 tomatoes

What we have to do:

1. Put baking paper into a baking tray, sprinkle with some oil, then put chicken and cut vegetables onto the tray. Don't chop garlic cloves. Add thyme and sage, season with salt and pepper, soya sauce.
2. Preheat the oven 190C and bake for 45-50 min. Serve with boiled rice. If I roast potatoes together with chicken, I serve just with some fresh vegetable salad.

  1. This really looks fabulous. I'm curious about the use of soy sauce with a recipe that sounds so Mediterranean. I'll have to give this a try.
