Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 Cup butter
  • 4 cloves garlic * minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 teaspoons Italian seasoning * divided
  • 1.5 pounds potatoes
  • 0.5 pounds sweet peppers
  • 1 shallot

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place chicken on a lightly oiled sheet pan.
  • Melt the butter in a sauce pan on microwave and stir in the garlic. Brush a small amount on to the tops of the chicken breasts. Reserve the rest.
  • Season the tops of chicken with salt, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning.
  • Cut the potatoes into 1-inch pieces and place in a bowl. Pour in 1/2 of the remaining butter and 1 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning. Season with salt and pepper and toss to evenly coat.
  • Pour the potatoes onto the sheet pan in an even layer around the chicken.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the chicken is baking, cut the shallot and peppers into thin strips.
  • When the 15 minutes is up, remove the sheet pan from the oven. Flip the chicken over and brush the tops with butter. Season with salt and peppers and 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
  • Pour the remaining butter into the peppers. Season with salt, pepper, and the last teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Toss to coat well.
  • Push the potatoes to one side of the sheet pan, and add the peppers.
  • Continue baking for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are fork-tender.
  • Toss the vegetables together, if desired and serve.

Notes

Tips and Techniques

  • Lightly oil your sheet pan to prevent the chicken and vegetables from sticking.
  • To brown the chicken more after baking, place it under the broiler for a few minutes, watching closely to prevent burning.
  • If you can't find small sweet peppers, you can use any combination of red, orange, and/or yellow peppers.
