Easy Baked Chicken & Potato Dinner for Two

The boyfriend had the quiche for dinner... and this is what I had. As always, be mindful of your tolerances - if you can't do peppers (I can't), fresh carrots are a good substitute. Modified ever-so-slightly from the Betty Crocker website.
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup reduced-fat Bisquick (I needed less)
2 large baking potatoes, peeled & cut into chunks
1 small red or green bell pepper, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 small onion, cut into 8 wedges
2 tablespoons soy parmesan, if desired
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 400. Spray 13x9 baking dish with cooking spray.
Brush the chicken with 1 tbsp mustard, then coat with the Bisquick. Place 1 chicken breast half at each end of pan. Place potatoes, peppers, and onion in center of pan; brush vegetables with remaining 1 tbsp mustard. Spray chicken and vegetables with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with cheese and paprika.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes, stirring vegetables after 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender and chicken is no longer pink.
Edit: I forgot to mention that I skipped the Parmesan, and it was still very good. I did sprinkle it with onion powder and salt instead.
This sounds like it would be very mustardy, but it's actually quite subtle. I think the same general idea would work with Italian dressing instead of mustard, for a change of pace. Yum!
