  • a large skillet
  • Oven
  • oven safe dish


  • 2 lbs chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese grated
  • 5 oz bell peppers sliced
  • 1 cup Italian dressing plus 2 TBSP for peppers & onion
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 4 cups Mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 onion sliced


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice the bell peppers and onions into thin slices, then place them in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of Italian dressing, stirring until everything is evenly coated. Set aside for later use.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add canola oil and let it heat up. Once the oil is hot, add chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and place it into an oven-safe dish. Top each piece of chicken with bell peppers and onions, then sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese has melted and chicken is cooked through. Serve over a bed of mashed potatoes for an easy weeknight dinner.



  • If you don’t have Italian dressing, you can substitute it with oil and vinegar or balsamic vinaigrette.
  • To make the sizzling effect when served, place the cooked chicken on a preheated plate before serving.
  • You can also add other vegetables like mushrooms and zucchini to increase the nutrition of the dish.
