Chicken Mediterranean

November 4, 2010

Tangy artichokes,sweet roasted peppers,crispy cheese and bread crumbs tantalize the taste buds in this ridiculously easy casserole.

  • 2-3  lbs. boneless chicken,cut in cubes
  • 1/4 C. olive oil
  • 1 jar marinated artichoke hearts (12 oz),drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 jar roasted red peppers (12 oz),chopped
  • 1 C. bread crumbs ( I mix Panko and seasoned bread crumbs)
  • 1/3 C. fresh grated Romano or Parmesean cheese

I was lucky to find some beautiful baby peppers on sale,so I roasted them myself with some garlic.

Measure 1 T.  oil from the 1/4 C. and spread in the bottom of a 7×10 pan or 9×9 pan. (recipe calls for 9×13- I think that makes it too thin) Place cut up chicken in the pan and coat with the oil. Make a nice even layer.

Put the drained, coarsely cut artichokes,chopped roasted peppers,grated cheese, bread crumbs and remaining oil in a bowl.Mix with your hands until oil is evenly incorporated and mixture is ” moist”. Layer the mixture evenly over the chicken.

Bake in 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.Crumbs should be browned.

Serve with couscous that you have squeezed the roasted garlic in,  and baby carrots with a butter and brown sugar glaze.

Note: The portions you are seeing are halved, since I was only making this for my son and I. I reserved some of the artichoke/pepper/crumb mix and topped a vegetarian grilled chicken burger for my daughter.
