BosGuy cooks: Wicked awesome chicken and peppers

bosguy cooksThis easy to make dinner provides a lot of flavor and can be prepped and cooked in approximately 30 minutes. Ingredients include: 1 lb of chicken, 2 bell peppers, 6-8 small spicy peppers, 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed red pepper, oregano and flour.

Step 1: Dredge the chicken in flour and add to an already hot pan with olive oil and two crushed garlic cloves over medium heat. Cover the chicken once added and flip the pieces as they start to brown.  Add the dried herbs – crushed red pepper and oregano.

Step 2: Cut the bell peppers and smaller spicy pepperoncini and add to the pan then cover.  Continue to vigorously shake the pan to keep the chicken from sticking.  The peppers will create a lot of steam that the chicken will absorb so be sure to cover the pan once they are added.

Step 3: Add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of white wine and cover.  Continue to vigorously shake the pan rather than taking the lid off to stir so the ingredients all mix. Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the meat.

BosGuy cooksThe smell of this as it cooks (esp. once you’ve added the peppers and wine) is heady, keep it covered so the chicken will absorb those flavors. This dish is best served over a bed of pasta – my preference is linguine.  If possible add 1/4 of a cup (half a ladle) of the boiling water that cooked the pasta this will add more liquid and flavor. Toss the cooked pasta in the pan or use tongs to coat it with all the flavors from the chicken, peppers and wine.

  1. One thing I learned – chicken thigh cut into 1″ or so chunks – dredged in a corn starch, soy sauce and chicken stock slurry, and then deep fried. They’re delicious. They’re actually part of the recipe for General Tsao’s Chicken. But they’re good all by themselves.
