    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Originally from Shape magazine and adapted to suit my tastes and simplify the preparation. This is healthy and comforting with a pleasing, but approachable combination of spices that even picky eaters will enjoy. Though full of flavor this is not spicy hot, so feel free to adjust to your own tastes. A word of caution, this makes 6 perfect portions for my weight watching lifestyle but if you have hungry eaters at your table, it may only serve 4 or 5.

    1. 1
      Coat a skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle pepper on chicken and cook in skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, so that the surfaces have a nice brown color and are no longer opaque. Remove the chicken to a plate and return the pan to heat.

      In the same skillet, heat olive oil. Add onion . If the pan become dry, add 2 tablespoons of broth to skillet. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until onion is soft, stirring frequently. In the last minute of cooking, add the garlic.
    3. 3
      Add tomato sauce, remaining broth and rum to skillet and mix well. Add green and/or red pepper, reserved chicken and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 15 min or until chicken is tender and liquid has thickened.

      This is very good. The directions are clear and easy to follow. I used skinless chicken thigh but left the bone in to enhance the flavor. The sauce is flavorful and not too spicy. I also served it with Buttered Spinach and Rice instead of brown rice. Thank you for a nice healthy recipe.

      This is so good! I had some cooked chicken, so it was really fast to put together. I added lots of red pepper flakes because I love spicy. The spices and the rum add a wonderful aroma and flavor to this. I served it over some leftover Buttered Spinach and Rice. Delicious and low fat - yay! Thanks for posting.
