Baked Chicken

1 Comment

Is it just me, or in this age where it is so very easy to send bulk emails to faceless persons full of information of a varying degree of use, are people just getting ruder? Employers seem to be adopting the attitude of ‘I am a very busy and important person, if I want you to know something I’ll call you, otherwise assume you are of little interest to me.

I have been on several job interviews lately, most employers list that if you unsuccessful, they will not bother to contact you. But even those people I have met with in person and have shaken hands with, that have told me they will contact me in the next 2 business days to let me know if I am successful or not, have never bothered to call.

Hell, I don’t want flowers from these guys, or even a phone call if it is too confronting for them but how about an email? How hard is it to collate a list of emails, write ‘sorry, you were unsuccessful’ and hit send? You don’t even have to write my name, just let me know so that I can move on and stop wondering.

People suck. Job hunting sucks. People make it worse.

I’m going to eat something.

I made this a few weeks back. I then promptly moved the recipe and forgot which one it was.
I had this great looking photo of a meal and no corresponding recipe. Things like that make me feel old.

6 Servings

1.3kg Chicken pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped (I only had red)
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
225g sliced mushrooms (I left these out for my husband’s sake)
2 cups Ketchup
2 cups chicken broth
1 Tbls Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbls black pepper
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 180C.
Place chicken in a baking dish and set aside. In a medium skillet, heat olive oil.
Saute onion, bell pepper, garlic, and mushrooms until golden brown.
In a medium bowl, combine ketchup, chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper.
Pour the ketchup mixture over the sautéed vegetables   in the skillet. Bring the vegetable mixture to a boil, and then pour over the chicken.
Place dish in the oven and bake 1 1/2 hours or until no longer pink inside and juices run clear.
Serve over rice or steamed vegetables.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
