Oh, did hubby and I enjoy this! Simple, fresh and light, this really hit the spot. I had a medley of bell peppers on hand, so I used a mixture of orange, red, yellow and green peppers which really lent the dish a lot of color. No need to measure ingredients exactly, just add or subtract to suit your own taste. Also, in keeping with the fresh flavors I was after in this dish, I opted to use fresh, chopped tomatoes rather than canned. Simply beautiful dish with a delicious blend of flavors.
Geez. Am I ever having a clunker of a day in the kitchen. Breakfast was a flop and dinner was too. I guess I'm just making poor recipe choices today.... While the taste of this was allright (nothing special, but edible), it was the texture that snubbed me. The broth / wine mixture, when combined with a thickener and then added to warm ingredients, made for a wierd "gooey" sauce. I have no aversion to creamy sauces, but broth / wine are an odd pairing for a pasta sauce. Perhaps I had my burner set too high???? Also, as this recipe implies, I was expecting an Italian stir-fry meal. I should have known better.... Sauteeing veggies for 5 minutes and then simmering for another 10 minutes will undoubtedly turn them to mush (especially onions). I think this would have been MUCH better if my veggies were crisp-tender (like a traditional stir-fry should be). Served with Italian bread, this was an "OK" meal. My hubby liked this a bit more than I did, so I guess it wasn't a complete loss lol! Anywhoo, I hope this will float your boat cause it sure didn't mine :( Thanks anyways, JBLUVS2COOK!
Great base recipe. Gave it 4 stars due to some tweaking.... the recipe doesn't state when to add the tomoatoes - not a big deal just throw them in when you add your peppers.
Tripled the garlic (personal preference), doubled the tomatoes and the wine. the result was a nice light, healthy meal.
DH tried this tonight, and it turned out pretty good, except he thought white wine & white wine vinegar were interchangeable. Actually was edible, if a little vinegar-ish. Gave it 4 stars because even with the vinegar it wasn't bad. Want to try it with the wine.
Easy, I typically have all the ingredients on hand. My daughter and my husband really liked it. Only changes I made were to coat the chicken with flour prior to browning, adding some halved, sliced summer squash because I had it, and added some red pepper flakes.
Great recipe! I was looking for a chicken/pasta dish but I didn’t want anything too creamy and heavy full of calories. This was perfect because it’s light, all the ingredients blend well and it has lots of flavors. I didn’t have any bell peppers on hand, so I only used tomatoes. I think mushrooms would go really well too. Also, I used fresh basil instead of dried, this was a really nice addition to this dish.
Didn't add the wine since I didn't have any on hand. Did add some red pepper flakes to taste. Pretty good.
A side note-I have added crushed red pepper flakes(about a tsp-more if you like really spicy)after chicken broth mixture has been added so that it can cook into the mixture. I don't add salt as part of the recipe because it's too personal.
