It's been crazy cold here in South Louisiana. Like, really, crazy cold. It actually snowed twice this winter. That's rare around these parts. Needless to say, I was looking for ways to warm up. Cooking is my favorite way to heat up the house. Because it's followed by a warm meal. Here's an easy recipe you can make in the oven to warm up your kitchen on a cold day.
BAKED CHICKEN WITH PEPPERS AND ONIONS
6-8 bone-in chicken thighs and/or drumsticks
1/2 an onion, diced
1/2 a bell pepper, diced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Drizzle a little oil in a large baking dish. Add chicken. Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil and oregano.
Add the diced bell pepper and onions.
Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until cooked through. The peppers and onions cook down and make the oil really flavorful.
Spoon the peppers, onions and oil over the chicken before serving.
This chicken is tender and juicy and so yummy. Plus, it is super easy to make. Give this a try the next time you want to warm up your kitchen. You won't be disappointed.
