Chicken’s in the Bag
Literally, this recipe is quick and easy to make just toss your leg quarters (leg and thigh) in an oven cooking bag which means easy clean up as well.
My recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free, and many are dairy free. This diet is allowing me to heal my gut. Changing my diet has improved my health, improved my sleep and improved my energy levels. This is my personal experience.
What’s going on in my life?
Today I woke up with a horrendous headache from a sinus infection. The sinus infection also caused mild vertigo. The vertigo is bad when turning my head quickly, therefore, no quick movements. I had to get up slowly and take a moment before moving in any direction. I have had vertigo really bad to where I couldn’t lay down at all. It is worse on my right side than my left side. I hope that I am able to lay down and sleep tonight.
So what to make for dinner when you are not feeling well and want something tasty. I had pulled out chicken quarters from the freezer last night. My brain started swirling with ideas and then checking them off as the amount of time or attention needed to complete the dish. I started thinking about what did women do when I was young. It made me think of Shake and Bake. So this recipe is a little throwback to when I was a kid or what I would call a vintage recipe. I remembered that I had a couple of oven cooking bags in my pantry so I knew I was definitely going to use those. That meant I only needed to focus on the what seasonings to add to the chicken. Some of my favorite flavors to add are onion and garlic.
When Everything Goes Wrong
I decided to use my Garlicky Onion Seasoning and boost the flavor. Why not add some dill weed, chives, and dehydrated onion. I checked my pantry to make sure I had enough Garlicky Onion Seasoning as I didn’t feel like making up a new batch. Sure enough, there was more than enough to use. That meant rinsing off the chicken placing the ingredients in the bag shaking it up so that all the ingredients get on the chicken piece then put the tie on the bag and place in the oven. Yep, it’s that easy.
Have you ever noticed that some days no matter what you do some things go wrong? What happened? Well, I couldn’t find the zip tie to close the oven bag with. What to do? The bag was more than big enough so I just cut off a small portion of the top of the bag about a 1/2 inch worth and used it to tie the bag shut. Bingo Bango bag was closed. Placed it on top of my roasting pan and placed in the oven. Then just sit back and enjoy until the timer on the oven goes off. Then snip the plastic oven bag off and add a little coconut oil to the skin of the chicken
