Baked Chicken

The seasoning mix for this baked chicken dish is similar to Cajun seasoning mix with a little bit of Oriental twist - the idea that I steal from Alison Holst's.

For 2 you will need:
Cajun Seasoning
1 tsp Garlic Salt (or Chicken Stock Powder)
2 tsps Paprika
¼ tsp Chilli powder (hot)
¼ tsp Dried Oregano
Pinch of sugar
Black pepper
1 tsp Curry Powder - you can cut down on Chilli Powder if you don't like it too spicy
2 tsps Flour

4 pieces of Chicken thighs, boneless with excess skin and fat trimmed
2 tbsps Butter, melted

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C

Mix the dry ingredient into a shaker. Brush non-stick baking tray with a little bit of oil and line it with chicken skin-side down. Brush the chicken pieces with melted butter, shake the seasoning on to the chicken evenly. Turn the chicken and do the same on the skin side. Baked for 35-40 minutes, turning half way through.

Serve warm with roast vegetables - I shake the seasoning on my vegetables too. You can also make gravy from the chicken juice in the baking pan and add some more stock.
