Hey Yo! How are you on this fine Monday-day? Are you Mondaying?! You know… sleepy, coffee carafe in hand, wondering why weekends go by so fast?

I’m totally Mondaying. I’m SO. tired. I had a full house last night, celebrating with friends and family, and now I’m all like, wow. can we do that again?! And not get up when the alarm clock tells me that I should? That’d be nice.

CHICKEN BAKE!

I desperately love a good chicken recipe. I think you know this to be true.

What I REALLY love is a good one pot chicken, that is also beautiful, delicious, and hardly any work is involved. Bonus points if tomatoes and cheese are present, and if said dish is perfect for a Holiday meal. It’s the ultimate dinner.

I’m tempted to tell you that the best part here in this One Dish Chicken Bake Recipe is the bed of tomatoes, all warm and bubbly, but really, the best part is the duo of tomatoes and tender chicken. The entire thing covered with cheese? It kicks it up and just adds a ton of flavor.

CANNED TOMATOES

For the tomatoes, I used Hunt’s ORIGINAL Diced Tomatoes because, a) I love the size of the already chopped up, perfectly sized tomatoes, and b) their tomatoes come from California farms (USA!), AND they contain 100% natural tomatoes.

To add, they’re made with vine-ripened tomatoes, which is a non-GMO food, and they have no artificial ingredients and no preservatives added. WIN WIN! To add, Hunt’s cans their diced, whole, stewed and crushed tomatoes within hours after harvest.

  1. This is a relatively simple recipe, but works well and is tasty. I’m always looking for some recipe inspiration and this was one I was saving for a couple of weeks. I switched out some of the herbs based on what I had on hand, but we liked it. You really can’t go wrong with the ingredients and method. We watch our salt intake and I did not add any salt and it had plenty of flavor. I did season the chicken with some garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and Italian seasoning. This is a winner!

  2. This looks so good in the recipe, but was a watery mess with rubbery chicken. By submerging the chicken in the broth, you are boiling, not baking the chicken.

  3. I’m 27 just made this over some super green spaghetti and was so good I will be making it again forsure. The chicken was so juicy and tender, great flavors from the garlic and onion. Loved it!

  4. I have the same question posted by Sandy back in 2018 but it doesn’t appear to have been answered: The recipe calls for draining the tomatoes but in the video it clearly looks like you are pouring in the entire can- juice and all. Please do clarify. This recipe (and all its possible variations) looks amazing!

      Hi! 👋
      It really doesn’t make that big of a difference if you drain or pour them in with the juice, as long as the juice is no more than around 1/4 of a cup, give or take.

  5. Delicioso.! Going to make it for the 2nd time today for the main component of freezer meals for my mama. Will change by adding spinach (she needs iron). After it bakes, I’ll remove the chicken and cut it in smaller pieces (easier for her). Then I’ll stir it all back together, top with cheese and bake a few more minutes. If I wanted to stretch it, I think I could add some rice.

  6. Made this last night and it was lovely and the fact that it was so quick and easy to make too, served it with cheesey garlic bread, thought about serving it with pasta to soak up the “juices” as someone mentioned it being too watery, mine certainly wasn´t like that at all and not bland either as someone said, I will defenately make this again for when I have little time or simply too tired or lazy to cook as it takes such little effort, thank you for sharing, this one has gone in my “to keep” folder 🙂
