Perfectly juicy chicken

Easy: 3 steps, 23 minutes

With all the sugar I'm processing lately, I need to take some precautions to keep my diet balanced. This recipes is the bomb not only for people on the diet, but also for anybody else, who loves the aromatic, juicy aroma of a chicken breast. All of that awesomeness without any extra oil or fat, which makes this recipe gold! :-) ---|

It's also a great cooking technique for almost any meat or vegetable that tastes better when cooked with own juices, keeping the moisture, aroma, and all vitamins inside. It's easy to use, makes great-tasting meal, what's not to love?!

Ingredients for 1 portion

  • Chicken breast: 300g
  • Salt: ½ teaspoons (3g)
  • Black pepper: ½ teaspoons (3g)
  • Garlic powder: 1 teaspoon (5g)
  • Herbs: 1 spoon (15g)

Step #1: Utensils

This recipe requires one special utensil: a baking sleeve (or baking bag), which is usually sold as a 3 metres long plastic sleeve that you can cut as long as you need.

Make sure your baking sleeve has closing clips attached, otherwise you will also need some baking twine to tie both ends.

Step #2: Prepare the chicken (3 minutes)

Tie one end of the cut baking sleeve with attached closing clip or baking twine.

Cut the chicken breast into 2-3cm cubes, or just bite-sized cubes, then place them in the baking sleeve.

Add all spices to the chicken, mix well, then tie the other end of the sleeve, making it look like a candy (see the image).

Step #3: Bake the chicken (20 minutes)

Preheat the oven to 180°C (356F).

Place the baking sleeve with spiced chicken into a baking form or on a baking sheet, flatten it a bit to separate meat clumps, and bake it for 15-20 minutes.

You can easily check the doneness, by rotating the sleeve — all pieces of the chicken should be white when you separate pieces stuck together.
