Italian Baked Chicken

If you don't want to prepare a usually classic baked chicken recipe with potatoes, this Italian variation is what you might like by adding some tomatoes and mushrooms.

This roasted chicken is very tender and flavorful, thanks to mom's trick in which she puts a cooking pot full of water on the bottom of the oven, and all without adding a drop of olive oil.

Doesn't it sound fantastic?

This Italian recipe with potatoes and mushrooms seems to me perfect, and if you are going to make it you'll enjoy Italian taste.
