Chicken is one of the most available and affordable source of protein ingredients. Recipes of chicken are extraordinarily numerous. One of my favorites is pop it into oven with an easy made marinade!

Ginger and scallion (green onions or spring onions) are two of my most-frequent use seasonings. On top of its health benefits, the flavor is super, goes well with countless ingredients.

Ingredients of the marinade are: ginger, scallion, olive oil, and salt! That’s it! The freshness is amazingly flavorous; there is even no need to add black pepper.

Before sending into the oven, I have two slightly different ways to make chicken:

  1. it can be marinaded overnight and baked in the next day, this way can be used for meal prep, very convenient.
  2. or seared first, rubbed with ginger-scallion marinade, and baked directly, this way keep the chicken juicy and reduce the time in the oven.

Have the chicken baked in 200*C (or 400*F) for 10 to 15 minutes. With a simple avocado cucumber salad and red bean rice. It is a simple and proper meal of any time. Enjoy it~
