Easy Italian Chicken

I've been making this recipe for years! Chicken breasts, petite diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and other ingredients all come together for this super-simple, easy, delicious, dinner in a hurry recipe!

Bone-in chicken breasts (or any chicken pieces you want)
1- 14.5 oz. can petite, diced tomatoes (or make your own)
1- 14.5 oz. can tomato sauce (or make your own)
1-2 tsp garlic salt or powder
1 -2 tsp Italian seasoning
1-2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup red wine (I used cooking wine)
Shredded mozzarella cheese or 5/6 Cheese Shredded Italian Blend
Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together (except chicken and cheese) in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

Add chicken pieces and ladle sauce over chicken to cover.

Cover baking dish and bake one (1) hour (for bone-in chicken breasts), or until chicken is tender and cooked through (165 internal temp). (boneless chicken should only take approx. 30 minutes)

Uncover chicken and top with Parmesan cheese and shredded mozzarella.  Continue cooking uncovered until cheeses melt (approx. 5 minutes). Serve over the pasta of your choice.
