Italian Baked Chicken

 

Happy New Year!
This is my first post for 2014 and I was inspired by our recent week in Park City, Utah, where we always cook for our house guests, but try to keep things simple to allow plenty of ski time and time for other local activities. We decided to prepare this 25-year family favorite, which is still appreciated in 2014 as it was in the 1980’s. A few simple ingredients and easy preparation have made this a standby for so many years.

 

 

 

Italian Baked Chicken
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

5 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (preferably organic), washed, dried and cut in half
2 green peppers, seeded, washed and cut into 6 strips
1 red pepper, seeded, washed and cut into 6 strips
1 yellow pepper, seeded, washed and cut into 6 strips
4 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and quartered

Place all ingredients in a large roasting pan (I use a large broiler pan).

Dressing:
2/3 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
4-5 large cloves garlic, crushed

Mix dressing ingredients well.

Drizzle dressing over the chicken and vegetables. Bake uncovered, basting frequently with juices for about 1 hour.
Increase temperature to 400 and bake 15 minutes longer to brown.
Arrange on hot platter.
Serve alone or with spaghetti with a marinara sauce and grated Parmesan.
