Baked Chicken Breasts is one of the easiest recipes you can try at home.
After making so many vegetarian and non vegetarian appetizers , I started wondering what to prepare for last weekend . Whenever I prepare any appetizer, I keep in mind that it is oil free or requires very less oil, and can be prepared without any hassle. I always look for easy appetizer ideas which can be also best appetizer for a party. Few days back, I had prepared Chicken wings and prior to that , Indian chicken appetizer, Chicken Tandoori. Both of them were a hit in my house.
Whenever you prepare any chicken recipes, make sure that the chicken is fresh and not refrigerated for long time, unless marination time says , refrigerate overnight . We usually get fresh chicken and cook the same day or the next day.
Last week I wanted to prepare some quick chicken , so bought these chicken breasts . Wanted to make some homemade sauce for it and prepare something in baked style. So gathered, whatever spices I had in my kitchen and prepared these wonderful baked chicken breasts and got finished soon by us.
I first marinated my chicken with spices and then prepared the sauce. Baked the chicken in the oven for about an hour and then drizzled the prepared sauce over it and baked for another minute or two. It was just mind blowing. This is one of the best appetizers for a party. Also try out my other appetizers like chicken wings, chicken tandoori, baked fish, avocado kofta and many more in appetizers section.

Bake in preheated oven at 400 degree Farenheit for 1 hour. (The time can vary depending upon the oven).
In the meantime, prepare sauce by mixing all the ingredients mentioned for sauce in a medium saucepan.
Add water and keep the saucepan on medium heat and let the mixture come to boil. Once it boils, switch off and add cornstarch paste and mix. Soon the sauce will thicken up.
