Everyone asks me for this baked chicken. Roasting the veggies brings out their sweetness. They're delicious with fettuccine, rice or mashed potatoes. —Gloria Bradley, Naperville, Illinois

"My whole family loved this recipe! Though some of my kids don't like red peppers they still ate up the chicken that had been cooked with the peppers and sauce on them. The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle the chicken breasts with some powdered garlic and cumin as I was browning them."

"This was very good and the chicken was really moist. I thought the sauce needed something, next time I make it I will add garlic to sauce. I will make this again."
