One Dish Baked Chicken and Vegetables Recipe

Here is a great-tasting and healthy chicken and vegetables meal, cooked and served in one dish. We had this tonight. Like many great recipes, I made it up as I went along. It was delicious and filling. Pay attention to the thick cuts and other preparation details; it’s worth it for the result. And while there is some preparation work here, the “one-dish cooking and serving” part helps a lot.

You can use the frozen chicken you bought in bulk at your local BJ’s or Costco. No defrosting; just lay them in.


  • Chicken tenders, frozen, 6 pieces
  • Celery, coarsely chopped, 1.5 cups
  • Red onion, coarse cut, 1 cup
  • Mushrooms, thick-sliced, 1 cup
  • Plum tomatoes, sliced, 2 pieces
  • Tomato sauce, 2 cans
  • Mozzarella cheese, part-skim, thin-sliced, 0.5 cup
  • Vegetable oil, 0.25 cups
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano



  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Prepare all vegetables, place all except tomatoes in a bowl, and mix.
  3. Pour oil into the covered dish, and place the chicken pieces down.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Open cover.
  6. Put the vegetable mix on top, 1st can sauce, tomato slices, 2nd can sauce, and cheese.
  7. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes more.

The classic Shadow Iris Corning Ware pattern is the one we got when we married.
