Saucy Chicken Skillet

"Amazing little sauce with fresh veggies and browned chicken breast. Simple enough for any weeknight yet still special and flavorful enough for guests. Adapted from a recipe I found at and changed quite a bit for my family."

    We served this tonight at our family get-together and it was a major hit. I followed the recipe as written and served it with brown rice, asparagus, broccoli and onion rye bread. Outstanding. We'll have this again. everybody raved about it.

    We all enjoyed this recipe very much. I used 1 whole red pepper and one whole green pepper. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I was just going to add a small can of whole tomatoes, but I didn't have that either, so I skipped them, and it was still good. I'm sure the tomatoes add a nice counterpoint to the sauce. I also didn't have green onions, so I just added a chopped white onion with the peppers.

    This recipe is great! It is really easy, tasty, and quick to make. We left out the green onions b/c I don't care for them. We used low fat dressing to cut calories. We will certainly make this again. Thanks!

    I have made this dish about 10 times already so far, and figured it was time for a review! this is one of my absoulte favorite dinners to have. I always serve it with some white rice.. the sauce is absoultely delish to mix in some rice and gobble up. I use red bell pepper as husband doesnt like green. Also I always use a little extra garlic & green onions! Amazing dish, I love it!
