Oven Baked Chicken, Potatoes, Red Pepper and Tomatoes

Oven Baked Chicken, Potatoes, Red Pepper and Tomatoes

Chicken dinners are always a big hit in our house. My husband Howard and son Ted love a roast chicken. I enjoy cooking a roast but in the middle of summer, if it’s warm outside which in the UK is rare, it’s not that enjoyable. Therefore when the weather is warm I still like making dinner but it has to be quick, easy and obviously tasty.

In the past I have made a tray bake dinner but never with chicken so I thought I would give it a try. For this recipe I used my stoneware which always cooks food evenly. Stoneware draws out the badness from the food which then leaves the food to cook beautifully. I brought my stoneware many years ago and sadly the company does not exist in the UK. A few years ago I brought more stoneware online. Trust me it’s a prefect way to cook chicken and this dish was de-lici-ous.

Oven Baked Chicken, Potatoes, Red Pepper and Tomatoes

Oven Baked Chicken, Potatoes, Red Pepper and Tomatoes was a success in our house. We all loved this dish and I ate the leftovers the next day too. It was a really tasty meal hot or cold. Personally I would freeze this dinner after it’s been cooked but it did make a great lunch the next day. It could be taken as a packed lunch on a picnic or to the office. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you. xxx
