      Absolutely awesome recipe!! Added some soy sauce and brown sugar to give the dish some extra flavor. Strongly suggest to butterfly the chicken breasts first and make a few short cuts on each fillet (don't cut it all the way through) before seasoning. This will allow chicken to be easily cooked through and the flavor to be held in well. My chicken breasts were quite thick, so I sliced each one horizontally into 2 or 3 thinner pieces. Love the peppers and onions in this dish. Ate it over rice. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for posting!!!

      Awesome. Made as is (except freeze dried basil, a good 2 tsp or tblsp.) and had with rice. Excellent. You *could* add broth if you want it saucier, but the flavor of the veggies was great with plain rice in my opinion.

      I made this for dinner tonight using fresh peppers from the garden. The chicken breast I had were quite large so they took additional time to cook. Next time I may serve it over rice to soak up some of the wonderful sauce.
