    justcallmetoni's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from a Cooking Light recipe and refined with changes in the seasonings to enhance the flavor of the otherwise bland chicken breast. It is delightfully easy to prepare and results in a dish with full complex flavors. Recipe serves two but can be doubled with no trouble. Reheats well for lunch the next day.

      Very flavorful chicken. One change I would recommend: don't simmer the bell pepper - between the broiling & simmering of the peppers, they come out lifeless. Otherwise, very good recipe. Thanks!

      This recipe makes for a moist, nicely flavored and seasoned chicken dish. I flattened the chicken breasts to promote even cooking. Initially, thought there was going to be way to much sauce; however, the liquid cooked down nicely and produced just the right amount to pour over the chicken and rice. This was served on top of short grain brown rice with a side salad for a filling, healthy meal.

      I enjoyed this recipe very much. It was an interesting combination of spices but the peppers in the sauce were a little more soggy than I prefer. It may have been because I used drumsticks instead of the chicken breasts I thought I had but didn't. The additional cooking time may have spelled doom on the peppers. When I cook this again, I use breasts as directed and reevaluate.
