Make The Perfect Baked Chicken For Your Family

Impress your family and friends with this Baked Chicken Recipe!

1.    Prepare the following ingredients: 1 chicken whole or cut up, olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh or dried herbs of your choice, carrots, garlic, onions and your choice of wine.

2.    Clean the chicken by removing all of the giblets inside of the cavity of the chicken. Rinse the chicken after with tap water and pat dry using kitchen towels.

3.    Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper and place inside a baking dish. Rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil to crisp up the outside while leaving the inside tender and moist.

4.    Place the chicken inside the oven and bake without any cover for an hour to an hour and a half or until the skin of the chicken is golden brown and the meat is cooked through. One way to test if this simple baked chicken recipe is done is to shake hands with the thighs of the chicken. If the thighs feel firm and meaty, your chicken is done.

5.    Other ways to check if the chicken is finished baking is through the use of instant red meat thermometer. The internal temperature that tells you a baked chicken is done is 170 degrees for the breast meat and 18i0 for the thighs.

6.    After taking out your chicken from the oven, make sure you allow it to rest before you carve it.

7.    You can make a little sauce to go with your baked chicken by deglazing your pan with your choice of wine, about a cup, and adding in some vegetables like carrots, garlic, onions, and fresh or dried herbs.

Chocolate Vegan Cheesecake Recipe

This cheesecake recipe is a clear winner because it does not contain any eggs, butter, milk, or cream! All that you need to make this lovely Chocolate Vegan Cheesecake are the following good ingredients:

  • 1 c. vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 c. regular Veganeise mayo
  • 1 Tbsp xanthan gum
  • 2 Tbsp strawberry jam, no sugar added
  • 1/2 c. all-natural crunchy peanut butter, no sugar added
  • 1 c. agave nectar
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 handful of mini vanilla vegan marshmallows
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

 

  1. To make this healthy chocolate cheesecake recipe, you need to combine almond milk and the Veganaise mayo in a small sauce pan. Stir it constantly and allow the mixture to bubble.
  2. Take a small portion of the mixture and add it on another bowl and dissolve the xanthan gum on it. When it has been incorporated, add it to the stove top mixture and reduce the heat of the pan while continuously stirring the mixture.
  3. When it has been incorporated well, you can take it out of the heat, cool it a bit and transfer into a container then chill it on your freezer to allow it to thicken. This will serve as your cream cheese mixture.
  4. Once it has been chilled, mash the mixture and combine with peanut butter, jam, and agave nectar on an electronic mixer. Keep on whisking it for a couple of minutes and add the cocoa powder, marshmallows, and coconut flakes.
  5. Flour and butter a spring form pan, making sure to reach all around the sides of the container. Transfer the batter into the pan and place inside a warm oven. This cheesecake recipe bakes for about half an hour.
  6. Allow the cheesecake to cool completely before serving. You can simply present it with a walnut or pecan on top or make your very own dark chocolate sauce. You can simply melt the chocolate on a double boiler and pour it on top of the cake before you bake it to make a delicious frosting. Of course you have to choose dark chocolate because it is the healthier version for chocolate with a lot of antioxidants and a little goes a long way when it comes to flavor!
