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.
This was ok. I tried to take the advice of others and added a bit of crushed red pepper but it still tasted bland. It is a simple recipe that I would recommend to someone just starting off, but other than that I wouldn't make this recipe again.
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.
Didn't add the wine since I didn't have any on hand. Did add some red pepper flakes to taste. Pretty good.
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.
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.
When I made this, I doubled the recipe so that I could have enough for 6 people. Everyone had their fill, and there's still about half leftover. It's pretty filling. Also, and this is just personal preference, I would try to make this a bit thicker with maybe a bit more cornstarch and more tomatoes. Lastly, parmesan cheese (lots of it) is a must.
