Healthy Baked Chicken with Mushrooms, Tomato and Peppers

Tuesday, January 5, 2021
This is an easy low-calorie Panko Crusted Baked Chicken with Tomato and Peppers that's a terrific one-pan meal.



The chicken is baked in a casserole pan with fresh herbs, fresh tomatoes, sliced peppers and I even have a list of other yummy suggestions you can add.



Also, a low-calorie dinner that's perfect when you want a healthy lighter meal.



It's vibrant colors just shout summer and then with just a touch of this toasted panko bread crumb and grated cheese topping it compliments the freshly sliced tomatoes.



If you're looking for an easy dish, quick with just a few ingredients, this is perfect.



Then if there happen to be any leftovers, chopped this all up and serve it over a bed of white rice, on top of your favorite salad, or even in a low carb tortilla wrap.



If you're always looking for a new way to prepare chicken this is a flavorful delicious and easy recipe.


Chicken is one of our family's favorite meats and eating healthy like this meal never tasted so good.



We also have two other favorites using chicken like our  Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore, or Slow Cooker Asian Chicken with Broccoli those are two more for you to try out!

Tips in the Kitchen:


  • Use only vine-ripe sweet tomatoes or canned whole tomatoes have to be of very good quality like San Marzano
  • Use Italian seasoned panko bread crumbs
  • Use a parchment-lined pan for easy cleanup
  • For another flavor of seasoning try Taco Mix instead of Italian seasoning
  • Don't overcook the chicken, this will cook quickly as it's thinly cut
  • Some of the vegetables (like potatoes) need longer cooking, you may want to pre-cook certain ones in the microwave first before adding them to this casserole
  • Frozen vegetables can be substituted for fresh that's in the suggestions list
  • Leftover corn, carrots, or whatever vegetables you have can be added to the pan at the end

  • Seafood of any kind can be used in place of chicken
