Night Thirty One…Smothered Chicken

The inspiration for this recipe came from a small restaurant in my hometown that has since closed.  Our family has always loved it; hopefully yours will too!


3 bell peppers, sliced

2 cans of diced tomatoes (retain juice)

1 large onion, sliced

6 Chicken breasts

1-2 tbsp Garlic Salt

2 tbsp Italian Seasoning

1 1/2 Cups shredded mozzarella Cheese

Note: All of this can be adjusted.  If you love peppers, add some more; if you love tomatoes, add some of those. 🙂


Place chicken in a baking dish.  Add seasonings, then onions, peppers, and tomatoes.  (I like to sprinkle some extra garlic salt over the veggies)

Place in oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Sprinkle cheese over chicken during the last ten minutes of cook time.


Messiness Factor-3 out of 5.  The worst thing about this recipe is the slicing up of the veggies. 🙂
