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.

Just finished eating this yUmmy Dish.
Used a bag of frozen peppers up i had in my freezer and some of my home grown sweet tomatoes roasted them in my oven then blended As in recipe, it worked really WELL. loved the addtion of feta cheese on top only thing i had to buy fresh was the cream. Served with new potatoes and side salad didnt need any dressing on salad and went great with the SAUCE.
thank you

Not one Pan. Also check the sodium content of your red peppers and Italian seasoning before you make this. Mine needed no additional salt and was actually way too salty.

    It fit in my 12″ pan

Easy cook and clean up. Doubled everything +/-.
Maybe some pasta on the side.

    Awesome! Happy to hear that you had such a great experience with this recipe.

I don’t have heavy cream on hand. What can i sub with? Would yogurt be weird. Helppppp!

    You could try half and half? Or you can even make your own heavy cream using milk and butter. Look it up on google for an easy recipe to do so- there are tons!
