Sometimes, I just need a dinner for one. Something I can put together in minutes, but a meal that is still wonderfully tasty and nutritious. When those times come about, I make something just like this – spicy chicken with tomatoes and blueberries.
This dish is so easy to create. You just coat the chicken with sambal oelek, and then sprinkle with salt. Place the tomatoes and blueberries on a baking tray, then the chicken on top. Finally, bake in the oven until the chicken is crispy. That’s it!
The sambal oelek gives great flavor and a spicy kick to the chicken. The blueberries caramelize a little and become sweeter, and when mixed with the tomatoes sweet and sour taste you get a perfect combination that tempers the spiciness of the chicken.
It’s surprising how tasty this dish is considering it only takes a few minutes to put together. It feels like magic. There is very little prep work, the oven does all the work during cooking. All you will have to do is transfer to a plate and enjoy.
This is a great recipe for one. But if you want to make spicy chicken with tomatoes and blueberries for two or three, or even four, just double, triple or quadruple the ingredients, lengthen the cooking time, and enjoy.
