I think 3340 degrees is a little hot for chicken.

I followed the procedure but it ended up flat taste because the juices of the tomato and zucchini washed away the taste of the chicken so it ended up like soaked in the veggies’ juice. Should it be grilled or oven?

Are the veggies really 1 inch slices? I had to make them 1/2 inch to get them to layer on the chicken. It is a fabulous dish. Love! Thank you for sharing.

My only concern is the top of my chickens texture is so soaked in juices that it almost tastes like it wasn’t cooked? I don’t know if I did something wrong. It is white through put because of the paprika and the tomato juice, I can’t tell if my chicken is really done

Trying this tonight. Just wanted to note that in your description you say it’s sugar-free, but there is sugar in the tomato and zucchini. I would change it to say there is no added sugar.
