Clean Eating Baked Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms

Ingredients:

ADD TO LIST
  • 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

Instructions:

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.

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.

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.
