Midterm Exam Cooking

As many students may tell you cooking and studying can be two of the most stressful things one encounters in college. However, there are tons of almost "fool-proofed" recipes out there that take less time to prepare than running out to your car to score some fast-food. Here is what I prepared to get me through a weekend of studying; I got it off pinterest.

On pinterest it's called Quick Chicken; however, I am calling it 4-ingredient marinade chicken. It kind of reminds me of a baked sesame chicken. I revised the recipe a little bit for my own taste and availability of ingredients. I prepared it the night before so it ended up marinading overnight; however, the original recipe does not include that step. I served it with basmati rice. Enjoy!

This is the chicken right before I put it in the oven. 

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of minced garlic (recipe called for granulated garlic but I was out)
1.5 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of soy sauce (recipe called for 2 tablespoon, but I dislike salty food)
3 tablespoons of heinz hot ketchup with tabasco sauce 

Directions: (modified to a quicker version by me)
1. Blend all ingredients (sans chicken) in a bowl.
2. Put a little of the sauce in the bottom of the baking dish.
3. Place chicken in baking dish.
4. Cover rest of chicken with the remainder of sauce.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
