This is one of my favourite variations of oven baked chicken. This chicken recipe is also great on the grill or slow-cooked on the BBQ. Watch me make it here.

Baked Herb Chicken

Category: Entree

Baked Herb Chicken


  • 4-6 chicken thighs, bone-in, skinless
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste. You can start with 1/4 of pepper
  • 1 small white onion or your favourite onion, roughly chopped. About 1/2 cup.


  1. I cleaned & brined my chicken breasts. That will add time to the process, so at the very least rinse your cleaned and trimmed chicken pieces, under running cold water.
  2. Add all of the above ingredients, mixing well. Place in a clean bowl.
  3. Cover & refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 48 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.
  5. Remove from fridge 30-60 minutes before cooking.
  6. Place chicken & onions in/on a prepared baking pan/sheet. Add 1/4-1/2 cup of cold water to the dish before placing in oven.
  7. Bake for 40-ish minutes. Turning once & basting the chicken halfway through.
  8. I like my poultry to have a deeper colour so during the last 5-7 minutes I turn the heat up to 425°F/220°C. Or you can leave the oven at the original temperature for the remainder of the cooking time.
  9. You are looking for an internal temperature of 165°F/75°C. Make sure that the thermometer is not touching the bone of the chicken.
  10. Serve hot or warm & enjoy!


Turn this into a one pot meal by adding potatoes, carrots or your favourite root vegetable. Cut them to the same thickness as your chicken pieces.

*This recipe is also great on the grill. Just make sure to pat the excess liquid before placing it on a prepared grill. A paper towel or a clean kitchen cloth would work well. I would cook the chicken pieces on the top grill rack.

*This recipe is also great on the BBQ. Slow cooked to lock in all of those flavours, with the addition of that wonderful smoky flavour.

*I would increase the rosemary for both of these cooking methods, to 1 tsp. The rosemary will help to counteract any carcinogenic effects that grilling can cause.

Till next time,


Ever have those days when you don't want to cook? You just want to pull something from the freezer but you want it to taste good and you want to know how it was made. Some convenience foods are great in a pinch but I like knowing where my food, in this case meat came from.

Are you concerned about the source of your meat or produce? Just because I'm a meat eater, doesn't mean I'll eat it from anywhere. I do care about how the animals were fed, raised & ultimately slaughtered. Which means more expensive meat, less often and I'm okay with that.

Well I solved this convenience problem for a little while by cooking up a few poultry options. Portioning it and tossing it in the freezer. I like to do this often but have been slacking for the last few months.

Brussel sprouts, one of my favourites. Lightly steamed makes my mouth happy.

Steam some veggies or make a quick salad, while the main part of the dish is heating up. Or if I just want something different than what someone else has cooked, I'm good to go.

Below: Chicken wings, before & after cooking. Cornish hen, before & after cooking. Turkey & beef meatballs, frozen & uncooked, ready to drop in some homemade tomato sauce.



Yep, that's how it is. When I'm tired and the only other option is cereal, my frozen meals are a blessing.

Do you ever make food and freeze it or do you just buy what's at the store/restaurant, when you don't have the time or want to cook?
