  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your choice)
  • 1 bell pepper (red, green, or yellow), sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with olive oil or non-stick spray.
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, paprika, dried oregano, and dried thyme on both sides.
  3. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  4. Add sliced bell pepper and onion to the skillet. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Place the seasoned chicken breasts in the greased baking dish.
  6. Top each chicken breast with a portion of the sautéed peppers and onions.
  7. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the chicken and vegetables.
  8. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Remove the foil during the last 5 minutes of baking to allow the cheese to brown slightly.
  10. Once done, garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve hot. Enjoy your delicious baked chicken with cheese and peppers!

Feel free to adjust the seasonings and cheese according to your taste preferences. This recipe pairs perfectly with rice, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.
