  • Chop the onion and garlic into very small pieces, reserve.
  • Dice the carrots, green peppers and mushrooms into thin pieces, reserve as well.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Rinse the chicken breasts and pat them dry with paper towel. Rub them with the olive oil then season each with salt, pepper, chili flakes and half of the oregano.
  • Place the chicken breasts in a large roasting pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the diced tomatoes, water and remaining oregano, while stirring, add the carrots, green peppers, mushrooms, onion and garlic.
  • Pour over the chicken breasts making sure they're thoroughly coated.
  • Place the roasting pan in the oven, uncovered, and cook for 45- 50 minutes.

Serve with pasta or rice.  A very nice alternative is to serve with extra wide egg noodles and warm crusty bread!

Bon appétit!

  1. Just joined this group today. Looks enticing!
    Wondering what step #3 is to be?
    Is this a guessing game and we have to find out whilst making this delicious looking recipe?

    1. It was a formatting error. It is now fixed, enjoy the recipe!

  2. Did you use boneless skinless chicken? Also, do you ever calculate nutritional values, if so, can you include them? Thank you for sharing!

    1. Yes, I did use skinless and boneless chicken breasts. Sorry, I don't calculate nutritional values.
