Herb-infused Chicken & Bell Peppers Casserole
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to preference
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
3 tbsp olive oil
Fresh parsley, finely chopped, for a touch of garnish
Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F.
Take a spacious bowl and merge chicken breasts, garlic, paprika, oregano, a hint of salt and pepper, and olive oil. Stir until the chicken is uniformly seasoned.
Introduce the colorful bell pepper slices to the chicken mixture, giving it another good stir.
Transfer this mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish, ensuring an even spread.
Lavishly sprinkle the top with cheddar and parmesan cheese.
Allow it to bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is fully cooked and the cheese has achieved a molten, golden state.
Once done, pull out of the oven and adorn with a sprinkle of fresh parsley.
Serve promptly and let the rich, cheesy flavors melt in your mouth.
