    I used bone-in chicken breasts cut in half, so mine did take a bit longer to cook I followed the advice of another poster and added some garlic and thyme. This is beautiful, flavorful and easy--who could ask for more? Thanks for posting! Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8, Pick a Pepper Challenge.

    DH and I made this dish for dinner tonight. Although we salted and peppered the chicken before sauteeing and added garlic and saffron to the sauce, like Chia suggested, we still found the dish to be a little bit plain for our tastes. Adding some parmesan cheese to the dish helped a bit. I did like that this was easy to prepare for a mid-week meal and required very little prep. Thanks!

    I used fresh oyster,fresh bella and fresh shitakii Mushrooms, a mix of red and yellow bell peppers for color and sweetness, a minced jalapeno for heat, canned crushed tomatoes, added 2 cloves of garlic and a pinch of saffron. Seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary and paprika before frying. Made for ZWT 5 and really enjoyed it! Yummy good. Thanks

    My kind of recipe - simple, quick and great tasting! The ingredients are convenient - things I usually have on hand. In addition it is as colorful as it is delicious. With the rice cooking as the chicken simmers this could easily turn into an affter-work meal for our family. Thanks for sharing this one lazyme. Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT5.

    Very good! This seemed like savory comfort food to me. Not spicy, not too acidic from tomatoes, just right. I loved getting all my vegetables in such an easy manner. DH wouldn't eat it because, news to me, he doesnt like cooked bell peppers. (snort) Anyway, this packs a nutritional punch, and I really liked it. Thanks for a great meal!
