  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken breasts or thighs, boneless & skinless
  • 1 large garlic clove, grated
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan pink salt
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 10 brown mushrooms or 2 portobellos, chopped
  • 2 large bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut or avocado oil
  • 1 cup hard cheese like mozzarella or marble, shredded (I went light on the cheese for my portion)

Instructions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse chicken and if using breasts cut in half lengthwise. In a large baking dish, add chicken, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well to coat evenly and spread in a single layer. Cover and bake for 20-25 minutes. Chicken is cooked when pale and surrounded by clear juices.
  2. In the meanwhile, preheat large ceramic non-stick skillet on low-medium heat and swirl oil to coat. Add onion and saute for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and saute for a few more minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bell peppers and saute for 5 more minutes, stirring.
  3. Remove chicken from the oven and turn broiler on High. Separate chicken a bit from each other and top each piece with vegetables (sprinkle around too) and top with cheese. Broil for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve hot with rice, quinoa or veggies. Or like me you could add yours to Zucchini noodles (which are the BEST!!)
