Creamy Chicken Picasso

I think I am starting to feel bad for the hubby that he will soon have his mother in law visiting for an entire 2 months, so I have been looking for recipes for all his favourite foods. As soon as I saw this chicken recipe from Kayotic Kitchen with all it's onions and bell peppers I knew the hubby would love it.

4 chicken breasts
2 onions
3 bell peppers
2 garlic cloves
14oz can diced tomatoes
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup cream
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
pinch nutmeg
Grated cheese

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and lightly brown the chicken in a pan with the oil and butter. Once browned place chicken in a baking dish.
Slice the onions and add to the pan, cook until softened and then place on top of chicken.
Cut the peppers into rings and add to the pan for a few minutes, then add to the baking dish.
Add the garlic to then pan, and cook for a minute or so before adding the diced tomatoes and water. Add the Italian seasoning, and a pinch of nutmeg.
Pour in the cream, season with salt and pepper and let simmer for 5 minutes, then pour all over the chicken and vegetables.
Cover the baking dish with foil and bake at 400 for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove foil, top with grated cheese and bake uncovered for another 15 minutes.

We served ours ontop of jasmine rice, which was perfect for soaking up all that sauce.
