This chicken is amazing! It is one of those recipes that I thought would be good, but it ended up tasting better than I thought it would. I made it exactly as written. The seasonings were perfect, the chicken breasts were moist and tender. My husband loved it! It would be perfect for guests, since the prep work can be done in advance, then it can be put in the oven and left alone. Fantastic!

This was an OK dish. I thought it had to much salt in it. If I make this dish again, I will use less OLD BAY seasoning and seasoned salt. The tomatoes, onions, and green peppers were very good though.

Great recipe. Easy and tasty. Even the kids liked it and that says A LOT! I didn't have fresh tomatoes or peppers on hand so I used sun-dried tomatoes and frozen pepper strips. Cut the black pepper to 1/2 teaspoon for the kids. It was the perfect amount of spice for them. Worked very well! Will be making this again.

This dish is quite good, however, I made it according to directions the first time and found it to be way too peppery. I will cut the black pepper down to 1/2 tsp. next time. Also followed others suggestion of switching garlic salt for garlic powder and glad I did, otherwise may have been too salty. I would also suggest using a small to medium red onion as in my dish the onion was slightly overpowering.

Mmmmmm! 'Like a good restaurant-quality dish. I plan to serve it in flour tortillas next time, but the sauce was soooo delicious I'll come up with a use for it. Very good!

Certainly five stars for being easy! Mindless and quick to get in the oven with very little clean-up (particularly if you have the clever habit of lining your baking pan with foil and just tossing it afterwards!). I enjoyed this and while I wouldn't call it extraordinarily delicious it was light, tasty and satisfying. I didn't add the tomatoes because I wanted the chicken to brown and the peppers and onions to roast. I kind of smooshed the chicken between the palms of my hands to even out the thickness, then baked it for 30 minutes at 375 degrees with the vegetables alongside of, not on top of, the chicken - again, so the chicken could brown. Also, I used a multi-purpose seasoning blend rather than the Old Bay. I served this with Pasta Pancetta from this site and some grilled zucchini.

I've been meaning to rate this recipe for a while now, it was grrrrrrrrrrrrrt. The only thing we did different was use garlic powder and used one green pepper and one red. We love this and make it a couple of times a month. Thanks for a great post.

Made this last night and was worried by the simplicity of the recipe that it would be bland - it wasn't! It was so easy to put together and delicious! I made a couple of changes - only had 2 chicken breasts, so used one onion, one bell pepper, and 1 pint of diced tomatoes (canned). Didn't have Old Bay, so I used half the season salt and then 1 tsp of cumin and 1 tsp of oregano instead of chives. The veggies had a great roasted flavor, and the chicken was cooked perfectly in 1 hour. Will definitely make this again!
