One Pan Mediterranean Chicken Recipe

One pan meals are where it is AT you guys. By now you know that I love food, but I’m a firm believer in the spoiler theory. The spoiler theory is something I just made up in my head (so obviously it’s very legitimate) that explains why food that takes forever and a day to prepare or requires an overabundance of labor doesn’t taste as good.

It can be traced back to when I was a teenager and I would beg my mother to make me a ham and cheese sandwich because it tastes so much better when you make it even though I was perfectly capable of making the exact same ham and cheese sandwich on my own. When it takes too long or too much effort, it just doesn’t taste as good.

The ham and cheese sammy is an over exaggeration (kind of) but you get my point, yeah?

That’s why I’m convinced that a meal that can be ready in about 30 minutes, give or take a few, tastes better – and if cleanup only requires two minutes because you only used a blender and one pan to make said dish? ALL the better. This one pan mediterranean chicken is quick, easy, and tossed in the most incredibly creamy and delicious roasted red pepper sauce everrrrr. You will make this again and again I tell ya.

Fabulous recipe! Something fresh and new, with well-balanced flavors that made the whole family rave! Went very well with some Italian oven roasted veggies. Next time (and there absolutely will be a next time) I want to try it over some thin spaghetti noodles with garlic toast.

This meal was just magical. In my top 5 for sure. Don’t forget the feta and basil, that’s what makes it so good! – Virginie

This was absolutely scrumptious! Restaurant quality with very little preparation/work. Dinner on the table within 30 mins! – Kelly

Oh. My. Word. I used coconut milk instead of heavy cream to make this dairy free and I roasted my own bell peppers. I wanted to drink the sauce. HEAVENLY.
