    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I found this recipe on the Internet and still looking to verify it's authenticity. I suspect the name comes from the brilliant red and green from the tomato sauce and vegetables. For now what I can say is delicious and easy to prepare. Most of the cooking time is a passive simmer so you can easily start this dish and go attend to other things around the house. (For WW, this is Core.)

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a large stew pot and add 1 teaspoon of oil. Add chicken cubes and cook one or two minutes just until the surface of the poultry is opaque. Add the onions, peppers and garlic and cook an additional 3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the tomato sauce, water, bay leaf, garlic powder, cumin and oregano to the pot and bring the stew to a light boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 110 minutes uncovered.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper. Add lemon juice and celery; cook until crisp tender, about 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove bay leaf before serving.
    5. 5
      This goes nicely over a bowl of brown rice and a green leafy salad.

      This was very good, and very easy to make. Next time, I will add some cayenne to give it a kick. Thanks for the good easy recipe!

      Spectacular chicken that was an ease to put together and as stated in your description, perfectly easy to go do things around the house, which I did. I was able to halve this recipe easily, and this was a cinche to put together. I used cubed chicken breasts, great onions, and peppers. Really loved the cumin and the oregano. I had some homemade tomato sauce so I used this and cut back on the water a bit. The celery was a unique and great addition too! Served with some long grained rice. Oh yummy! Thanks Toni!
