Chicken Italian

"Tasty chicken pieces with chopped tomatoes and veggies. Simple to make as ingredients should already be in your cupboard. I find it easier to mix the ingredients for the sauce in a Pyrex glass measuring cup."

Ready In:
1hr 5mins




  • Preheat oven to 200C/400°F.
  • Rinse the chicken and remove any excess fat and skin and set aside.
  • Mix the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
  • Mix all the chopped veggies in a roasting pan and pour the sauce over top.
  • Lay the chicken pieces on top of the sauce, skin side down and cover with foil.
  • Cook for 25 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven, take off the foil and turn the chicken pieces over so that they are now skin side up.
  • Return to the oven, uncovered, and continue to cook for 20-25 minutes until chicken is done and skin is crispy.
  • I served this with boiled potatoes that had been thickly sliced. You may want to try this with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice.

  1. It smells so good while cooking. I used chicken drumsticks. Next time, I'll use skinless. Cause it was not so crispy. After the cooking time was done, the veggies were still crispy. Next time, I'll bake the veggies for about 10 minutes before adding the chicken. And 6 mushrooms were not enough, I used 1/2 lb :) I love mushrooms. Thanks CulinaryQueen. Made for photo tag game.


<img src=> UPDATED: 15 Aug 2007 Hi! Thanks for taking a peek at my page! I'm formally from East Norriton, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. After 21 years of marriage, got divorced and met a Brit living in the U.S. He decided to come back to his homeland and I came over here about a year later. We were married in October 2005. Here I am down at Viking Bay which is only two miles from our house. My hubby grew up down here and I love living near the seaside. <img src=> <img src=> We adopted two rescue cats in May 2007 and now I have some company during the day! (Yeah sure, great company they are when they sleep all day!) Our two 'children'... Noddy (Lord of Nottingham) <img src=> <img src=> Alfie (Sir Alfred) <img src=> <img src=> I really have it made I think. I have a husband who can cook! I cook during the week and Peter cooks on the weekends. I have included some of his concoctions in my list of recipes. <img src=> Me at the Scotland border, August 2005 <img src=> I'm still unemployed which gives me plenty of time to experiment in the kitchen. I love to cook and try different things and 'Zaar has really helped in that aspect. I'd love to start my own business someday selling some of my homemade creations. <img src=> <img src=> <img src=> I'm a Betty Boop freak and have loads of stuff that I've collected over the years including a porcelain doll of her in a wedding dress and I even have her tattooed on my ankle. <img src="><img border="0" src=""> ~~~~~~~<img src=> I enjoy doing cross stitch, cooking, baking and entertaining and hubby and I love our wines! Some of my pet peeves are bad hygiene, rudeness, bad manners, laziness and people who litter. My favorite cookbook is my Betty Crocker Cookybook. I've had a copy since I was about 12 and it was falling apart. My brother got me a new copy a couple of years ago from ebay and it was a FIRST EDITION and was in excellent condition. Now that I'm here in England, I find myself collecting more cookbooks. I'm going to need another room just for them if I don't cut down a bit! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src=> <img src=""><img src=> <img src=""><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="adoptatagparticipant" title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" target="_blank" title="web site hit counter"><img border="0" alt="web site hit counter" src=""></a>
