  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium-high heat; cook chicken in hot oil until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken and accumulated juices to a bowl.
  3. Mix onions and mushrooms together in the same large Dutch oven; add sherry. Cook and stir until onions and mushrooms are soft, 5 to 6 minutes. Add zucchini, red bell peppers, yellow squash, garlic, rosemary, Italian seasoning, oregano, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Mix tomato sauce and chicken stock into vegetable mixture.
  4. Arrange chicken on top of vegetable mixture; pour in any accumulated juices left in the bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Cover Dutch oven.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I eyeball every ingredient and add liquid (chicken stock or sherry) to the cooking vegetables if they look dry during cooking.
  • I use my cast-iron dutch oven but this can also be made in a slow cooker if you choose.
  • I usually serve this over buttered egg noodles with Parmesan.

I didn't use the hot pepper and I used more chicken, but it was amazing!

very delicious ! I did it all on the stove top. Added the chicken back into the vegetables and let it simmer about 20 min. Served it with rice.
