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.

I’m in love with one pan meals – the less dishes I have to do, the better! And you’re definitely right, the less work involved in a dish always makes it taste better 🙂

5 stars
hey girl this look oh so yummy!

I can’t have dairy — can the heavy cream be replaced with a non-dairy alternative? Any idea which one?

    I made it with coconut cream from Trader Joes and it was delish!

    Try coconut cream. That’s a good sub. I’ve used it before in another recipe and it’s good. Okay. I just noticed someone already told you the same thing.

    Blend in some raw cashews or almonds for creamy texture.

    I just made this dish and I used raw soaked cashews and added chicken stock to thin it out.

    Coconut cream is perfect in this dish instead os dairy cream

    I used home-made oat cream as it’s a more subtle flavour than coconut. The result was a really thick, creamy sauce where the roasted peppers were the star flavour.

I LOVE Mediterranean flavors! I would love to try a veggie version of this dish inspired by the same flavors. Maybe with tofu!

Oh my, look at that. So creamy and delicious.

    Thanks Mary!

Yes to one pan meals! Especially packed with flavor and creamy sauce! Loving this!

    Agreed, one pan meals are THEE best! Thanks Anna!! 🙂

This is such a simple dish! Yet I can tell that it will be delicious. Roasted red peppers are my favorite! I just had one question. I cannot eat feta. Is there a substitute cheese that I can use?

Fabulous recipe! Something fresh and new, with a great ballance of flavors that made the whole family VERY happy! Pairs great with some Italian roasted veggies. Next time I’m going to try it over some thin spaghetti noodles with garlic toast.

Thank you for sharing this with us!

Mine might have looked just as good but my blender decided to exploded from the bottom and I had to go to back up and salvage. Very rich meal since I’ve never cooked w/Heavy Cream before. This is a staple herein my Casa.

What type of oil do you recommend for this dish? Thank you!

    Olive oil or vegetable oil work great!

Can you use yoghurt instead of cream?

Es sieht soooo lecker aus

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!

Absolutely delicious. Made this with rice and some extra sliced roasted red peppers. Even my 9 year old devoured it.

Hi!
Want to thank you for your wonderful recipes.
I decided to make your salsa and red pepper hummus.
It was a success, friends took take aways of it.
I used the salsa as my pizza sauce. My pizza tasted so good.
Cant wait to try more recipes.

I am actually a vegan who still cooks chicken for my boyfriend, so I made this marinade for him & I was actually super jealous because the mixture tasted SO delicious. Also, I decided to bake it instead of stove-top and it still came out great (obviously he had the final taste!). I will have to find a way to incorporate this recipes into one of my own vegan dishes!

This was awesome, my sauce didn’t thicken up much but it was spectacular!

Just made this! And I love it! This was the first time I’ve ever roasted my own peppers and I felt like it really added to the dish. I just happened to have Mediterranean and garlic olive oil on hand which I soaked the peppers in and used asome my 4 tablespoons of oil. I also added some shallots which I sautéed in the pan before adding my sauce mixture. I will definitely be making this again!!

Do you have the nutritional information?

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.

5 stars
Yummy dish!

What could you use as a cream substitute?

    Hi Marian! I’ve never substituted cream before in this recipe, but I think your best bet would be greek yogurt.

I’m making this sauce now..however it tastes a bit bitter what have I done wrong?
I didn’t cook the garlic first before processing an I roasted the Peppers myself

4 stars
It is good, but it is a bit light on salt and could benefit from a wine reduction and a few extra ingredients. Still, this is good, and I would not hesitate to serve it.

The Italian seasoning did not taste right with this dish. Going to remake it with Mediterranean seasoning for the Mediterranean flavor.

5 stars
I made this last night. Delicious!!!. My husband was nuts for this. I doubled the sauce because I had 8 chicken thighs.
I also added more Italian seasoning because I like stronger flavor. I also added a bag of Spinach at the end to wilt in the sauce. We ate the chicken and sauce over brown rice flavored with lemon thyme and butter. I will definitely be making this again. LOVED It.

I made this last night with white rice and my husband and I both loved it! I made extra sauce because I thought there wouldn’t be enough but there was plenty! Would love to make it again with pasta. Yum!

Absolutely banging. My O.h. Is a fussy eater but loved this. Will definitely be Added to the Midweek repertoirE…..firecracker chicken later in the week in my new slow cooker

Just made this dish. so quick and so easy! I subbed heavey cream with raw cashews. so delicious!

Have made this a number of times and it’s always a favourite…and very easy. the one thing I add is chilli.

    I love hearing when people make a recipe several times because they love it so much! Thanks for sharing! Great idea for the addition of chili. Sounds yummy! Thanks, Patrick!

The sauce was fantastic, I did saute shallots before I added the red Pepper sauce and also added a paRtial bag of spinach. Also added lemon, thyme and butter to rice. Husband loved it and Im having leftovers for lunch today. This recipe really jazzes up boring chicken.Thank you, its a keeper.

    Happy to hear you and your husband enjoyed this! Way to go on your additions- they sound delicious! Thanks for sharing, Louise!
