This was GREAT! It took a little while to do but well worth the time. I added garlic and sour cream. The sour cream is a must. It made a delicious rich sauce. Without it dish was a little dry. Thought I made enough for leftovers, -- wrong, all gone!
Tastes like stir fry.
Definitely a keeper for a busy weeknight or lazy weekend!
Made a number of tweaks only because I like to have alot different flavors blending in my food:
28 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes instead of fresh chopped tomato; 3 garlic cloves minced; 3tbs chili powder instead of 1; first seasoned chicken with adobo powder; add 1 packet chicken bouillon in powder form; 1 teaspoon dried crushed oregano; 1 teaspoon ground cumin; and 1 chopped zucchini or squash.
I love this recipe! It's so fast and easy, not to mention colorful and delicious! The only modifications I make are using red peppers instead of green, adding garlic, and topping it off with melted mozzarella cheese. Otherwise it's perfect.
This recipe was a quick and easy dish, that delivered something a bit different. I did make some modifications. We are not big fans of super spicey foods so I did not use hot sauce or the jalepeno peppers. I added one can of black beans and 3 cloves pressed garlic. Also instead of one fresh tomatoe I used one can of diced tomatoes with chilies. I served with Mexican rice and also had cheddar cheese, black olives and sour cream for garnish. I will definitely make this again.
I added zing to this recipe by changing it up a bit. I didn't add more chili powder after cooking the chicken. After cooking the onion and bell pepper with 1-2 tsp diced garlic and 1 tsp ground ginger, I added 2 chopped roma tomatoes, 1/2 cup medium salsa, 1/2 cup water, a sprinkle or two of cinnamon (you'll be surprised how a little adds a lot of flavor!), salt, pepper, and added 1/8 cup finely chopped canned jalepeno slices. I then added the spiced chicken and heated thoroughly, allowing the liquid to form a "sauce". After cooking, I removed from heat and stirred in 1/4 cup of freshly torn cilantro. Excellent!
Quick and easy. I added garlic, 1 cup chicken broth and some corn. will play with the spices next time around.
This was a tasty recipe, with a few changes. I used the diced canned tomatoes with jalapenos and garlic. Served over saffron rice, with refried beans and sour cream on the side. The family has asked that this becomes a frequent meal.
