Easy chicken and zucchini baked alongside onion and the perfect amount of spices. It’s the perfect easy dinner for a hungry family.


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless, chicken breast cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 medium-size onion, chopped into large pieces similar to the size as the chicken
  • 1 zucchini, sliced vertically into four large pieces, then chopped into smaller pieces. 
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt or salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp freshly milled pepper or pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the spices, salt, and pepper. Then, add the olive oil and mix everything until a “marinade” forms. 
  3. When ready, add the cut-up chicken, onion, and zucchini to the marinade. Next, give a toss to fully incorporate the ingredients with the seasonings. You may marinate this for up to 24 hours. 
  4. For those who are hungry at this moment, transfer the chicken and veggies to a baking dish and put it in the oven uncovered at 425°F for 30 minutes. 
  5. Enjoy while hot and serve with fluffy quinoa or buttery rice.
