Sometimes even when at home there is only a few products, you still can prepare satisfying meal. For this one you only need to buy canned tomatoes and chicken breast, other products – I guest almost everyone have at home. But I have to tell you this time you will have to spend some time preparing tomato sauce, but it’s worth that. I like it even more than store bought. But my kids don’t agree with me 🙂 But everyone has the right to choose.

Chicken with Baked Rhubarb

I do as always – I add recipe here only when rhubarb season is over. Even if I prepared this in the beginning of the season. But this dish is suitable for those who like sweet and sour food and for those who like meat with fruits. In the baked chicken we tasted rhubarb only a little bit, and the whole chicken taste was great. Also, I blended baked rhubarbs and served as the sauce – it was really delicious for me and my daughter.
