Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 1/2 lbs. yellow potatoes, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 2 red peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup onion, cut into 1" pieces (use outer, larger rings of onion for this)
  • 1 head garlic cloves, separated and skin removed (cut larger cloves in half*)
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425° F (218° C). Spray baking dish with cooking spray or rub with additional oil.
  • Use a kitchen towel or paper towels to dry chicken and vegetables off and absorb excess moisture.
  • Place chicken, potatoes, red pepper, onion slices, and garlic into prepared baking dish and drizzle with 3 Tbsp. oil.
  • Add paprika, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes and rub in with hands to coat evenly.
  • Place in preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring once half way through.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Turn oven to broil and cook for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Notes

*Can use 2 tsp. minced garlic or 1 tsp. garlic powder instead if desired.
