Bistro Chicken With Peppers

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

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.

I made this tonight for my husband and I. The recipe is great! We made it together which is great because I just had a baby and still trying to get my life in some what of a decent order. I didn't have curry or tarragon, so I used cumin and marjoram. It taste awesone! My husband is having a ball eating it! I think it will be a regular in our house.
