  • About This Recipe

    “Consider chicken breasts as blank canvas, much in the same way as you might use rice. It does not have an intrusive taste of it’s own, but white chicken meat provides a nutritious, inexpensive source of protein to use as a base on which you can build a variety of interesting meals.Here is a quick meal for one that requires only one skillet and a second pan to make the rice or pasta.”

  • “Now my girlfriend and I have seperate tastes on how our things are done, but this recipie is awesome… she digs the bell peppers and white wine, I prefer onions with a shot – or so – of bourbon. So 3 pans, everyones happy :)”

  • “I used bone in chicken leg quarters. I just browned in a little oil until chicken is almost done. Then removed chicken from pan and sauteed onions,mushrooms and peppers. Added rest of ingredients, simmered them for 10 minutes then added chicken and simmered another 10 mintues. Very Tasty.”

  • “very tasty. We added jalapenos,onions and chili sauce and it was good”

  • “This recipe was ok, I didn’t think it was very good on the reheat and I had to add extra salt because I found it kind of bland.”

  • “This was good and easy. I sauteed the chicken with garlic, onions, hot chili sauce and a jalapeno. I used a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce and served it over spaghetti squash. This is a quick and healthy dish I will make when I am the only one home for dinner. Thanks!”

  • “I doubled it, but not the basil.I also used sherry instead of wine and served it over rice – yum!Will make again!”

  • “Easy and you can add anything you want to it to make it ‘different’. I didn’t have a green pepper, but added broccoli, tomatos and onions. Will make this very often. The basil really tastes good.”

  • “A quick and delicious meal!I made just one serving for myself but now I´m cooking it for my whole family.”

  • “This was a great quick and easy chicken dish. I added a little flour to thicken up the sauce. I served this over pasta but I think it would be even better over rice. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “I added strips of onions and used beer instead of white wine and it fit my tastes perfect!”
