Oriental Chicken Bake

If you've read my blog before, you know that I usually put all my recipes for the week together in one post. I've decided that I will post them separately so it will be easier to search only desserts or only chicken, etc. I hope it helps.

Oriental Chicken Bake

I like this recipe for two reasons. The first is that it is so easy. I can put all the stuff together and throw it into the oven. The second reason I like it is that the chicken is breaded, but not fried. I found this recipe years ago, but I can't remember where, and made it. Then I recently realized I hadn't made it in a really long time, so I made it again. I won't wait so long for the next time. It makes very tender, flavorful chicken. You can use whatever veggies you like and you can use chicken pieces, but increase the cooking time. Cooking time below depends on how big the chopped chicken pieces are.
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1/4 t. black pepper
Salt to taste
1/3 c. flour
1 c. green pepper, sliced
1 c. carrots, chopped
2 t. canola oil
2 T. pineapple juice
2 T. soy sauce
1 t. chicken bouillon granules
1 T. dried chopped onion
1/4 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle chicken pieces with the salt and pepper. Coat on all sides with the flour. Place in a single layer in a shallow greased 2-quart baking dish. Lightly toss in green peppers and carrots. Combine remaining ingredients and pour evenly over the chicken pieces. Cover and bake for 25-35 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.


  1. Hi Valerie. Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment. I totally agree! I know I'm going to miss these dependent days something fierce. We're finally starting to fall into a somewhat comfortable routine now. It's still a little overwhelming, but it's not anywhere near as crazy as it was. Thanks for the encouragement :)

    These recipes look great - esp this one! I can't wait to try it; it sounds tasty.

  2. I got your message, and there are two Asian stores I know if in Provo. The first, which I usually frequent more -- just from habit, is Chao's. It's on University Avenue on the same block and side as Los Hermanos. There is another one on 4th South by a Thai Pepper Kitchen restaurant (or something like that), and that's where I go when I need new baskets to steam my rice and veggies in since I haven't seen them at Chao's. (Chao's seems to have a little bit wider aisles, which I like. I haven't been to the other enough to know where to find my loot, either.) Either store is great to buy rice -- my 50-lb bag of gluten rice was less than $25. (Don't know if that's good compared to Costco, but Costco doesn't carry gluten rice. :) My sis-in-law, who is Asian, prefers a store in Orem, but I don't know where that is. A neighbor, who is Lao, said she prefers a store in American Fork or somewhere like that. Just ask around and you'll be surprised how many there are ...

  3. This sounds so yummy--thanx for sharing!!
