Make It Monday: Creamy Chicken and Peppers

I've been on a "sugar diet" during the week and the other day I wanted something to indulge in. I searched around for something I could make with the chicken I had taken out for supper. This recipe is so yummy and creamy and a great dinner indulgence.

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 T Italian seasoning
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 bell peppers (red, yellow or orange)
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 6-8 oz. cream cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • grated mozzarella for topping
  • 2 T olive oil for cooking chicken
Pre heat oven to 375F. Heat 1T olive oil in a skillet and brown the chicken on both sides, do not cook all the way through. Place chicken in a glass dish. Add 1T olive oil and saute onions, then add peppers and garlic. saute until slightly soft. Place over the chicken. In the same pan pour in the tomatoes and add cream cheese, warm until the cheese is melted. if your sauce seems a little thick add some chicken stock. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning, then pour sauce over top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella and bake for about 1 hour covered. Near the end remove covering and let cheese brown and bubble. This is great served with rice, or even over pasta, YUM!
