Chicken Italiano

The basis for this recipe comes from Norene Gilletz’s Second Helpings. Thanks to my SIL for sending me the original recipe yesterday as I don’t have my cookbook here with me. (I miss it, been a trusty companion for over 16 years….soon, soon). I added rice, as this is easy to make as a one pot meal. As I type this it is cooking in the oven. Smells divine.

So this is my adaptation:

2 cups of white rice (although I am sure you can use brown)
2 onions, sliced
1 medium green pepper, sliced
1 medium red pepper, sliced
6 -8 chicken cutlets
1 clove garlic, minced (can also use garlic powder)
¼ tsp oregano
1 can tomato sauce, 1 can water
2 bay leaves

Spray deep 9 x 13 baking pan with Pam. Cover the bottom evenly with rice. Place vegetables over the rice. Rub chicken with garlic and oregano, and add to pan. Pour tomato sauce and water over chicken, and add bay leaves. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1½  hours. 6-8 servings.

    Yep, it was quite tasty.
    I took chicken wings instead of cutlets, because this is what I had here.
    The pepers & onions were extremely – how do you say? Yummy!

  8. Thanks so much for posting this recipe! Nice to know that Second Helpings is still so popular after 40 years!!!
