This easy crispy Baked Italian Chicken is everyone's favorite one pan meal in our house. It's crispy and bursting with fresh herb seasoning.  Anyone can make this easy to prepare dish!

You will love how fast this all comes together.  Baked Italian chicken is one of those comfort  foods you will make often. I love easy recipes and this bakes all in one pan!

I just love easy meals. I have also used sausage in this dish before , I bet you've already thought that? I love all one pan meals, quick, easy and flavorful.

Chicken baked in the oven hat is crispy with Italian spices and herbs. A big plus is having all the vegetables in one pan. That's what makes dinner time so super simple.

My whole family is a big crispy chicken lover. While its baking the chicken gets really juicy inside and crispy on the outside. We are also big sausage and peppers fan which of course can be substituted.

When I usually make that dish I also add potatoes, the carrots for sweetness and lots of grape tomatoes. You can add sweet potatoes if you like or even broccoli. Vegetables roasted in the oven with this chicken comes out great. Make whatever vegetables your family likes.

 I sometimes even substitute plum tomato slices and sprinkle with with bread crumbs. They are so yummy that way.

If you're not a big fan of chicken then of course you can use any other meat. This is very good with chicken, sausage, pork chops anything your family likes.

You really don't need any thing else but this Italian baked chicken with potatoes, tomatoes and carrots for sides, however you can serve this with a tossed garden salad, some white wine goes great with this dish and a good hard crusted Italian bread.

If your really in a hurry, you can use a disposable pan and just toss it when your done baking this dish. Sometimes when I use to get home late from work, that's the only way I wanted to cook something because I hate clean up.

 I'm not a fan of the clean up, I really don't  the part of washing dishes but I love to make a mess!

That's why I love parchment paper so much. I  line my pans with parchment paper almost all the time.  I like that it the bottom doesn't scorch and I don't have to scrub them if anything were to stick to the pan!
