Sounds good ! Will make it soon!
Very good for my LCHF. Love it!!
Made this the other night and it was great! I didn't use any red peppers because I didn't have any. I did however, use a sprinkle of bread crumbs as well as some Mrs. Dash's seasoning.

Would use high quality olive oil (not the spray, usually adulterated with other oils) or coconut oil for cooking.

This was way too hot for me. I might make this again with a different kind of cheese.

I've made a very similar dish for a long while now and it's really good. The family always asks me to make it more often definitely try it if you haven't! Although I agree with the others, mine usually takes a little longer than 15-20 minutes, more like 30.
I used relatively small chicken breasts and it still needed almost 40mins baking time in a covered dish. Next time I'll use thicker slices of cheese to get a bolder taste. In addition to red pepper rings I put onion rings and two cloves minced garlic on the bottom of the dish before placing the chicken on top. I then drizzled it all with a little olive oil. Will definitely make again with a few little tweaks.
