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.

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 fans which of course can be substituted.


When I usually make that dish I also add potatoes, 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.

Tips

  • For easy cleanup line, the casserole with parchment paper
  • for juicier chicken do not oven cook
  • add more vegetables you like in the baking pan for side dishes
  • bone-in or boneless chicken is fine
  • other meats like pork chops, cube steak, lamb, veal, or venison can be substituted
  • use a meat thermometer for gauging when your meats are cooked all the way through











Instant Pot Instructions:


  • Press the sauté button on the Instant Pot and warm up the olive oil.
  • Add the seasoned chicken, ( you can use chicken breasts or any parts you prefer) to the pot and sear on both sides.
  • Remove chicken
  • Pour 1 cup white wine (you can also use water or chicken broth) in the Instant Pot and scrape up the bits.
  • Place some scrunched up foil (around 5 foil balls) to act as a plate and place them inside the pot, then arrange the chicken on the foil balls and slices of vegetables on top with more seasoning.
  • Close pot, set valve to sealing, select the manual or pressure cook button select high pressure and set the timer to 13 minutes. Depending on how thick this may take longer.
  • When the 13 minutes are up, let the pressure release naturally for 8 minutes, then, release any remaining pressure. If not cooked put it back on for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from pot and let rest for 5 minutes.

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!
