Chicken Red Pepper Saute for Two

"A very simple recipe to serve over rice. Although peppers are in season in summer, I can also see making this for Valentine's Day since it is red & white! From Taste of Home's Quick Cooking (July/August 1999)"

directions

  • Stir the cornstarch, 1/4 cup of broth, garlic and lemon pepper together until smooth; add the chicken strips and toss to coat.
  • Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chicken mixture and remaining broth; cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Add red pepper strips; cook and stir until the chicken is no longer pink and the peppers are crisp-tender, about 6-8 minutes. (During this time, I added a little water to the pan because I was afraid it was going to cook dry. It worked out well, and produced a nice sauce.).
  • Garnish with green onions or chives.

    Quite good. I would eat this again. We had it with a super salad. We followed the recipe and wouldn't change anything next. It doesn't take long to make. In fact it's faster than making rice! Imagine that!

    Wow, what a light and delicious dinner! I only used 1 tsp of oil, and added a little salt. Next time, I will add the cornstarch to the sauce AFTER cooking the chicken and pepper through, to make a smoother sauce. I used the green onions for garnish and served over rice, with a green salad and broccoli as sides. Very healthy and tasty!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

My husband and I married straight out of college in July of 1992. I work as the Assistant Manager at a wine shop which allows me to drink on the job! (OK, not that much, but it's still a fun job...) Besides helping customers choose wine they will like (and also help with food and wine pairings for their menus), I also get to help with the catering end of the business, so I get to spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen making fun appetizers and beautiful food displays. I also work part-time at the fromagerie next door. So yeah - that means I eat on the job, too. :^D We live on several peaceful wooded acres on a cute little river in rural NE Wisconsin, with a cranky old-lady Burmese and whatever stray outdoor cats that have decided to adopt us on any given day. The cute puppy in the picture is Jake, our Elhew-bred English Pointer that we brought home on Easter weekend 2007. I've also got 2 painted turtles named Dennis and Fuzz, and a bunch of fish (koi and goldfish, along with the guppies & swordtails in the turtle tank). I USUALLY eat and cook healthy, but I rarely pass up dessert, either. I do not eat red meat, and try to limit other animal products, too. I love to bake, although I seem to collect a lot of scone and biscotti recipes which I NEVER get around to making. I bake and eat A LOT of cookies and muffins... I almost always reduce the sugar by 1/4 and use whole wheat pastry flour for at least part of the flour. Those two changes do so much to make recipes healthier without compromising taste. I try to reduce fat whenever I can, too, but while I want to eat healthy, I still want to ENJOY what I eat!!! I seem to give a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews here - I seem to have a pretty good sense of what I like by looking at a recipe before I try it. Thank you to anyone that tries my recipes in return, or photographs them.
