We eat a lot of chicken and I'm always looking for ways to make it different. This quick recipe certainly is that!
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 pounds total)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 cup chopped onion, use a sweet variety such as Vidalia
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 sweet red pepper, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
- 2 cups frozen lima beans, thawed
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (good, as Ina would would say ,-)
- 1⁄4 cup chicken broth (or water)
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- Mix together 1 tablespoon chili powder, salt and pepper. Sprinkle on the chicken pieces.
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken pieces and cook 7-8 minutes per side until browned and juices run clear. Remove from skillet and tent loosely with foil.
- In the same skillet, add remaining olive oil and onions. Saute for 3 minutes then add red peppers and garlic. Continue cooking until onion is tender; about 5 minutes.
- Add corn, lima beans, remaining 1 teaspoon chili powder and the vinegar. Cook for 5 minutes. Add broth (or water) and parsley. Heat through.
- To serve, place a bed of succotash on a plate and top with whole or sliced chicken breasts.
This is a fabulous recipe that my whole family loved and I can't wait to make it again. Absolutely delicious, easy to make and low in fat. The cooking times for each step are perfect. I wondered about the amount of balsamic vinegar and how it would go with the chili powder, but it really works so don't skimp on the vinegar. The big change I made was to substitute canned black beans, rinsed and drained, for the lima beans as no one here eats lima beans. I thought I had a red pepper but did not so I used jarred roasted red pepper. Perhaps not a true succotash my way but we loved it. This is good enough to serve to guests, at least those with adventurous tastes. Thanks, Susie!
This dish was very tasty! Next time I will probably add squash, and maybe some zucchini!
Very good. But it is better with smoked sausage which makes it hard to keep lit.
