We made it with red & yellow peppers and served it over buttered pasta. It had great flavor and even the kids ate it! Would make it again.

Oh! This is a refreshingly, delish, dish. I hadn't seen this chicken made like this before~so I was anxious to try it. Between the garlic cloves, the onion, peppers, and chicken~ the aroma would call the neighbors to the door, begging for a try. I made this even easier, (hope you don't mind) I just cooked everything on one pan, an ingredient at a time. First I s&p'd the chicken, browning it and finished cooking it right in the skillet. After that was completed, took chicken out, added mozzarella, let it sit warming. Next, I browned onion, peppers, garlic, and added water. Let evaporate to thicken sauce up a bit, added a bit of soy sauce, (had a packet in junk drawer) and spooned delish sauce over top. Outstanding! Thanks for posting this simple, but pleasurable chicken dish.

The chicken was delicious, but the peppers and onions needed a little something. Next time I will add salt and pepper to the peppers and onions and dissolve a chicken boullion cube in the 1/2 cup water. Great recipe - justs needs a little tweaking. I served it over brown rice.
