Chicken and Peppers

Recipe: Chicken and Peppers

The “cookbook” I use most often is a binder where I keep tear-outs of recipes from magazines and old books. I’ve been making this version of a chicken and peppers recipe for the longest, and since the original recipe has been in the binder for years and years, I have no idea where I got it.

Ingredients: Chicken and Peppers

Ingredients: Serves 8 (I usually serve half, and freeze the remaining for another meal.)

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 thin boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets
  • EVOO
  • 4 bell peppers (red, green), sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (also used in this recipe)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch stirred into 2 tablespoons water

Recipe: Chicken and Peppers 2

  • Combine flour, salt, and pepper on a plate, and dredge chicken cutlets in the mixture. Shake off excess.
  • Cook floured chicken in oil until lightly browned on both sides. Remove chicken from pan, and set aside.
  • Add a bit more oil to the pan, and cook sliced peppers – stirring frequently – for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add minced garlic to peppers, and cook for about 1 minute more.
  • Pour in vinegar, stir pepper mixture, and cook for about 2 more minutes.

Recipe: Chicken and Peppers 3

  • Add veggie broth, salt and pepper to taste, and cornstarch mixture to the pan. Bring to a boil.
  • Return chicken to the pan, and reduce heat to low.
  • Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through.

  1. I make a version of this too that I love! Served over rice. Delicious.

  2. That looks delicious! I will definitely add this one to my list of recipes to try. In another post, you mentioned that you have always preferred to eat vegetables over meat. I am searching for a good vegetarian cookbook. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks!

      Although I definitely eat more veggies than meat, I haven’t found a vegetarian cookbook that I’m in love with yet. Most of the ones I’ve seen so far have very complex recipes, and I usually prefer to keep it simple, quick, and easy! This is a great idea for a post: I’m getting to work, lol. In the meantime, the cookbooks detailed in my Cookbook Love post contain some vegetarian dishes. Thanks for the comment and the post idea 🙂

  3. This looks really good, I bet it would make good leftovers too.
