By now you probably realized that since I work from home, quick a few of my everyday meals are simple, easy and quick with not too much work involved like this baked cilantro chicken.
This again is a simple easy and yet delicious recipes that gets done with very little effort.
Here’s what you’ll need:
6 skinless Chicken quarters or One whole skinless chicken cut into 6 to 8 pieces.

2 large garlic cloves
1 inch piece fresh ginger
1 medium red onion

Salt and Pepper to taste.
Clean and cut and pat dry the chicken.

Have all your ingredients ready. Clean the onion, ginger, garlic and chop roughly.
Place all the ingredients in a blender, including the olive oil and lemon juice.
Blend to a smooth paste.

You can let the chicken rest in the marinade for a minimum 1/2 hour to over night.
Sometimes I marinate the chicken at night and bake it about 2 hours before lunch the next day.
Bake in a preheated oven at 190 C/380F for about 45 minutes. Turning the chicken over once or twice during cooking for even browning
and that’s it – your baked Cilantro Chicken is ready.
