Recipe by YungB

I first tasted this dish in a restaurant here in Santa Monica, CA. It was marvelous so I went home and tried to recreate it. My family thinks it is better than the original. I also hope that you will like it.

We love Chicken, green peppers and tomatoes, combined with that wonderful combination of seasonings this was a winner at our house. Other than the gumbo file which I have still to find, I made as posted with wonderful results. Served over rice along with a green salad this made for a terrific supper. Thank you YungB will be making this again very soon.
