Baked Italian Chicken

Friday, March 2, 2018
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!


The chicken is moist and tender and the vegetable side dishes are in the pan!


What can be easier?


This can be made in an instant pot on the pressure cooker cycle instructions to follow!


Just sear it first and change it to pressure for around 35 minutes and voila it's completed.


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!

Flavorful Chicken



This chicken recipe is flavorful as written, but some folks love spicy hot!


You can add some cayenne pepper, black pepper, and even hot sauce to this chicken if you love a little heat.


One other way to enhance a little heat is to use pepperoncini peppers mixed in with the vegetables as this bakes.

Easy all in one pan meal!



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.

Baked Is Healthier Taste Like Fried!



My whole family is a big crispy chicken lover. While it's 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 bread crumbs. They are so yummy that way.

Just Add Whatever Your Family Likes!




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.

I Love Not Making More Sides For Dinner!



You really don't need anything else but this Italian baked chicken all in one pan.



By adding the potatoes, tomatoes, and carrots for sides, you're done, easy peasy!



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.








Easy Meals




I love all in one pan meal like this one.



Working all day, I want to come home to a simple meal that is going to satisfy the family and this is it.



This Baked Italian Chicken is the perfect meal for a hurried cook.










Clean Ups A Breeze!



If you're 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 the cleanup.


I'm not a fan of the cleanup, 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. The Baked Italian Chicken won't stick to it!


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!

Baked Italian Chicken



I always like to suggest using fresh herbs when possible.


For me, I am lucky enough to have fresh herbs in my garden all year round.


The basil, parsley and even oregano or rosemary, really changes and compliments the flavors so much better.


This baked Italian chicken is the best recipe whether you use the oven method or in an instant pot, it's a winner!
