Chicken with Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Chicken with Red Pepper Cream Sauce


"I've been making this for my family for years and they love it! You can substitute cream or half and half for the evaporated milk and reduce the sour cream if you want a richer recipe. I always serve this over pasta."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the onion, mushrooms, and garlic until onions are tender. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. Heat remaining olive oil in the skillet over medium heat, and cook the chicken and turkey bacon until chicken juices run clear and bacon is browned and crisp. Return the onion mixture to the skillet, mix in the peas, and reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, while preparing the red pepper and sour cream sauce.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the roasted red peppers and oil until heated through.
  4. In a bowl, mix the sour cream and evaporated milk. Heat in the microwave on High for 1 minute, or until heated through.
  5. In a blender or food processor, blend the red peppers and the sour cream mixture until smooth. Pour over the chicken mixture in the skillet.

This was nice. Needed a little extra seasoning and some time to simmer on the stove. Thanks for sharing, I'm always looking for new things to do with roasted red peppers.

I would have given this 4 1/2 stars but decided to give 5 stars because it is a wonderful recipe as is or for adapting to personal tastes. Cook the bacon (I used regular pork bacon) separately,...
