TOTAL TIME
1
Arrange the oven shelf to the middle of the oven and preheat the broiler (or grill in Australia) on medium heat.
2
Season the chicken breasts with 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning, paprika, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
3
Heat olive oil in a pan or skillet over medium heat, and cook chicken on both sides until browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
4
In the same pan, cook the diced onion until transparent, about 3-4 minutes, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
5
Add the chopped fire roasted pepper, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, crushed red pepper flakes (if using), and the remaining Italian seasoning. Stir well to combine.
6
Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it thicken while stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes.
7
Arrange the chicken in the sauce and top each breast with 2-3 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella.
8
Transfer the skillet to the oven and broil for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is browned and bubbling.
9
Garnish the dish with freshly chopped parsley before serving.
