  • Mix tomato-vegetable juice cocktail, penne pasta, water, artichoke bottoms, basil, vegetable bouillon, and coriander seeds in a large oven-safe pot. Layer chicken atop pasta mixture and season with salt and pepper. Layer zucchini and red bell pepper on chicken; drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

  • Roast chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Sprinkle each serving with Italian cheese blend.

Cook's Note:

Oven temperature can be lowered to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) if slower cooking is desired.

We liked this recipe but didn't love it. It had good overall flavor but each item by itself was by itself was bland. For instance the pasta was bland unless you had a piece of chicken or zucchini (unfortunately I had to sub Butternut squash for the zucchini) with it. The squash was plain unless you had a piece of chicken or pasta with it. And the chicken was bland unless you combined that with something as well. You get the idea. I think this can easily be a 5 star recipe with some additions. Definitely needs onions and garlic. I think broccoli in with the pasta would kick that up a notch. I think also having some cheese melt through the dish while baking would help a bunch too. I recommend this recipe with some of your own tastes added. Read More

I listened to the first reviewer and made some alterations to a very sound base recipe. I halved the ingredients to feed 3 peopIe that is 660ml of V8 vegetable juice if you can only buy it in litre cartons added a teaspoon of minced garlic to the pot and an extra pinch of ground coriander. Each of the 3 chicken breasts I sliced part way through and spread 1 teaspoon each of basic pesto and soft cheese mixed together into each cut placing the chicken breasts on top of all the other ingredients. Finally season each chicken breast and drizzle with olive oil. I cooked it all using a cast iron pot with lid for an hour. Most the liquid had been absorbed and the chicken breast was perfectly cooked. It was all very tasty. I would check it after 40 minutes and adjust the cooking time if necessary. Read More
