There is a period of time where I just buy spices that I saw in recipe books. I have no plan to use them, I just want to own them in my pantry.*Faint* Now, I have an array of spices in my cabinet and I have to find some ways to use them in my weekend cooking before they pass their prime.
I realised that by marinating chicken breasts with spices first then bake for 15 minutes in the oven yields a simple and fulfilling meal. In the picture below, I marinated the chicken breasts (cut 3 silts) with rosemary, thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic, salt and pepper. I threw in some boiled potato wedges by the sides and baked it together with the chicken breasts. A well-balanced meal.
