Yield:6 servings 1x
3 lbs chicken breasts or thighs, boneless & skinless
1 large garlic clove, grated
1/2 tsp 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
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 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.
