Delicious Chicken Bake

on April 20, 2016

Wow…tried out this recipe tonight, and it was a HIT.  I tweaked the recipe a bit, but I went off of a recipe provided by : https://dpums.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/skinny-italian-baked-chicken-with-tomatoes-artichokes-garlic-and-mozzarella/

This recipe is healthy and has great flavor – definitely got the hubby’s approval!  We will be having this again, FOR SURE!  Feel free to play with the veggies – I’m sure there are others you could add and enjoy it just as much!

Ingredients

  • 2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (depending on the size of your family/party)
  • 15 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 handful spinach (I tear it into smaller pieces)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Olive oil cooking spray (I use Pam)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic powder, for seasoning
  • Pepper, for seasoning

Equipment

  • 9×13 oven safe cooking/baking dish (mine is glass)
  • Large bowl

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray the 9 x 13 pan with olive oil cooking spray and place chicken breasts in the pan. Season each chicken breast (both sides) with garlic powder and pepper
  • In the large bowl, combine cherry tomatoes, chopped artichoke hearts, garlic, red onion, spinach, cornstarch, and sugar. Stir to mix well. 20160419_192318
  • Add this mixture to the 9×13 pan, nestling it around the chicken20160419_192646
  • Cook for 25-30 minutes
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle desired amount of shredded mozzarella cheese on top, turn broiler on low, and place back in oven for 5-10 minutes; the cheese should bubble and brown slightly
  • Remove from oven and serve warm

We served this over brown rice, but it probably would’ve been fine on its own!
