Spicy baked chicken/tofu

It is not easy to find the perfect cook book. But I was lucky enough to find one that always give me nice ideas for dinner. Especially I love those that takes 5 minutes work but the rest is done by oven 🙂 And that one looks like spring that is approaching 😉


400 g chicken
200 g Brussels sprouts, halved
1 tea-spoon cornflour
1/2 cup plain thick yoghurt
1 tea-spoon harissa or any chilli paste
1 tea-spoon ground cumin
salt and black pepper

Cut chicken in to slices and salted them. Mix all other ingredients in a bowl. Deep chicken slices and Brussels sprouts in it. Bake them in preheat oven at 200 C for about half an hour. At the same time potatoes can be baked.

ps… for vegetarian version, just use feta cheese instead of chicken sprouts. Its delicious!




  1. I love the iceblocks! Are they pomegranate seeds?

    1. Thanks. It is red currant not pomegranate seeds.

  2. They caught my eye as well! Great idea – so simple and looking so lovely.

    Oooh, i’m definitely gonna have to try this! I love those kind of recipes where basically your oven prepares dinner for you. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You are welcome, thanks for stopping by. If it is a week night I love that kind of recipes too 🙂

  6. I love chicken! Its healthy and tasty and quick to cook. Ice cubes are fantastic idea, where do you get them all?? Beautiful blog and beautiful photos as always!!!

  7. The ice cubs are the real eye catcher. Neet idea.

  8. Oh, Irena, what gorgeous work and styling! Photos are just glorious and how delectable this all looks! You are such a talent, beauty! And I agree, it really isn’t all that easy to find the perfect cook book — for me the issue is that there is just too many appealing recipes and not enough time — how does one choose? And yes, recipes that take only minutes worth of work, with the rest done by the oven, are awesome — this one looks delicious — thanks for sharing, can’t wait for the next =)

    1. Christina, I am so very flattered by all your nice compliments 🙂
      I have the same problem lately – too many recipes that I’d like to try: new cook book, your blogs, combinations I haven’t try for a little while… not time enough.
      Wish you all the best!
