This Parmesan Chicken Thighs with Herbs and Peppers is a favorite baked chicken recipe that's bursting with flavor.


I love that it's crisp and baked in the oven.


The breadcrumbs are a tasty coating.


This chicken stays moist and is so tender baked and certainly healthier than fried with all the same great taste.


We love using chicken thighs in many recipes but this is one of the family favorites.

Parmesan and Crispy Baked Peppers




The peppers are very tasty with the addition of bread crumbs.



I really love peppers baked with the chicken, it really enhances the flavors.



If you have any leftovers, the chicken and peppers is fantastic in a toasted Italian garlic bread sandwich.



Sometimes I add a little slice of tomato and lettuce, add little Italian dressing, and it's one of the best second meals using your leftovers!



It's so darn good!

  8. Oven baked chicken is so good. I never buy "fried".... way to greasy and calorie dense. This would make a great dinner any night of the week, and I know my grandkids would LOVE this for dinner.
