    Grace32's Note:

    This is a bunch of recipes I found on the internet meshed together - plus, I added a few of my own ideas! It as not as much work as it looks like - most of the 'cook time' is in the oven. Follow the recipe, and the chicken will 'fall off the bone'. Delicious!

    1. 1
      Mix salt, pepper& flour together.
    2. 2
      Wash chicken (taking off excess skin& roll in flour mixture).
    3. 3
      Put a little onion& a bit of the garlic& a few whole basil leaves in 3/4 the oil, then brown chicken on all sides in the oil.
    4. 4
      Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels (May need to add more oil as you go along).
    5. 5
      Remove gristle from pan, leaving the oil; add the onion& half the garlic and stir until onion is just wilted, then add, zucchini& mushrooms- cook, stirring for a moment (not long, it will also be cooking in the oven).
    6. 6
      Place the browned chicken pieces into a large oven-proof casserole& pour the onion-veggie mixture over the chicken.
    7. 7
      In the same frying pan, add the rest (1/4 cup) of the oil& add the other half of the garlic, then add the crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, Italian spices, and wine.
    8. 8
      Simmer a few minutes.
    9. 9
      Pour over the chicken, cover and bake in a 350 degree oven about 45 minutes or until the chicken is done; then, uncover the chicken, top with chopped basil& parmesan and bake an additional 15-20 minutes to allow cheese to melt& sauce to thicken.
    10. 10
      Serve with white rice with a little of the sauce on top.
    11. 11
      Note: To reduce fat& calories, you can remove the skin from the chicken& omit the olive oil from the sauce.
    12. 12
      I prefer to remove the skin while eating- the basil& chesse form a kind of crust so you can still have that without the skin.
    13. 13
      Cooking with the skin on keeps the chicken moist.

      Very good, I will make this again! I used peppers in leiu of mushrooms and zucchini and used boneless chicken breasts. The chicken was incredibly moist. I would recommend making extra sauce if you plan on serving this with pasta.

      This was delicious! I added a green pepper for texture. Served with a lemon risotto recipe from this site, great combination!

      I loved this! The only changes I made was to use frozen mixed grilled vegetables in place of the veggies in the recipe. I also did not have bay leaves and I used white wine instead of red because I drank the last of the red (oops!). Last but not least I used skinless breasts to cut down on the fat. It wasn't dry at all. I used convection to bake it but I think with all the juice from vegetables and tomatoes, it really stays moist. SO good the next day or two later!
