Pepper Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by evelynathens

This chicken needs to marinate for 2-4 hours before cooking - but putting it together and cooking it is a breeze and the taste will make you happy. This recipe is also great done on the bbq.

The taste made us VERY happy! This dish really is incredibly easy to put together, enough so for weeknight meals, and is delicious. I made the recipe exactly as directed (although I only used chicken pieces, not a cut-up chicken). The mix of spices was perfect, and when I began cooking the chicken, the aroma really made my mouth water. DH and I agreed that this is a very unique-tasting dish (not for the spice-challenged) that we'll make often. Wonderful dish - thanks, Evelyn!
