Recipe Time: Two-Pepper Chicken

Every time I make this, it gets better. Easy, and damn good.

Ingredients (per serving)
  • powdered garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 boneless/skinless chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp. chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, diced
  • Mix the black pepper and garlic in a large bowl (the garlic amount is up to you, I happen to love garlic so I use a lot)
  • Slice the chicken into thin strips or bite-sized pieces; slice bell peppers into small strips
  • Add chicken to garlic mixture and toss to coat
  • Heat 1 tsp. of the oil over high heat in a skillet
  • Add the chicken and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes (until cooked through); transfer to a clean plate
  • Add remaining oil to skillet, turn heat down to medium-high
  • Add bell peppers and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes (until they start to soften and brown slightly)
  • Add tomatoes and stock, bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes (until peppers are very tender)
  • Return the chicken to the skillet, cover and simmer 3 minutes (until chicken is heated through and flavours blend)
Voilà, that's it. Now, you could do brown rice with this (about 1/4 cup, uncooked, per serving) and a salad, and it comes up to about 500 calories (depending on your salad dressing, of course). Not bad, considering how much food you're gonna get out of this. Wanna be fancy, serve it with a really good Gewürztraminer.
