This One Pan Oven-Baked Chicken and Peppers recipe is an easy dinner recipe for glazed chicken and tri-colored peppers.
I’ve found the trick to eating more vegetables … It’s to only eat the ones you actually like! Now I’m not a dietician, but I’m of the opinion that if you hate kale and love broccoli, just eat the darn broccoli. Even if that means eating broccoli every day … That’s better than getting halfway through a kale salad and reaching for that bag of chips instead. Amiright?
For me, the list of vegetables I love is short: I do happen to love kale, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, and PEPPERS!
This One Pan Oven-Baked Chicken and Peppers recipe is a super simple dinner recipe that creates minimal dishes and requires very little effort.
The glaze creates such juicy, delicious chicken and also helps flavor the peppers. I used chicken thighs for this, but you can also use chicken breasts sliced in half lengthwise.
Now, since I’m lazy and seldom plan ahead, I don’t even marinate the chicken in this recipe. I find you don’t really need to.
However, if you want maximum flavor and really have your shit together, pop that glaze and chicken in a Ziploc and marinate away!
One Pan Oven-Baked Chicken and Peppers is great served over brown rice or quinoa with a side salad. Talk about a super easy dinner recipe!
The chicken comes out sticky and juicy and yummy and oh lawd I just want some right now.
So if you’re searching for a stupidly easy dinner recipe, give One Pan Oven-Baked Chicken and Peppers a try. It doesn’t disappoint.
