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.
