FOOD: Lemon Basil Chicken

Dinner for one!!

One my short walk home from worked; I started to brainstorm the food in my apartment and what I could possibly make for dinner. Living by my self, the list of food at home was rather short, although I went to the market the day before. Well, most of these ingredients I usually have in my apartment that is except for the asparagus, they were a food splurge! Yeah, that’s right a splurge, 4,000 Won ($4) for six stocks! Yikes!

  • 1 Chicken breast
  • 4 Stocks of asparagus
  • ½ cup of uncooked rice
  • 2 lemon slices
  • 1 Cup of water
  • olive oil
  • dried basil
  • pepper
  • salt
  • tin foil
  • Balsamic Glaze (optional)

1.)  Pre-heat oven (or toaster oven in my case) to 180°C about 350°F

2.)  Prep a time foil pouch: Put chicken on to a piece of tin foil. Sprinkle chicken with dried basil, salt and pepper. Place the two lemon slices on top. Fold the tin foil around the chicken.

3.)  Place the chicken foil pouch in the oven (toaster oven), and cook for about 15 minutes.

4.)  While the chicken is cooking, make the rice. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add uncooked rice and let cook.

5.)  Cook the asparagus. Bring a pot (I prefer to use a wok or fry pan) of salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook for 4 minutes, until asparagus is just tender.

6.)  By now your chicken should be cooked completely. Put everything on a plate with a little balsamic glaze and enjoy!!
