If you have followed me, you will probably remember me mentioning my belief that if it starts with bell peppers and onions…it’s going to be a good meal! And I am going to LOVE it 🙂 There is just something about those flavors together, warm and satisfying. You don’t even have to season it that much if you so choose, because the peppers and onions bring so much flavor of their own, which is the sort of recipe this is! So delicious, and so classic!! Check it out!!! It looked so pretty in my cast iron skillet 🙂 Which I have been trying to use more and more to avoid the controversy surrounding non-stick and it’s potential harms. I have also heard that cast iron will actually add iron to your food! Can you believe that?! And I love the brown it gives to meat!
Don’t you want to eat that? I’ll tell you how you can!
Here’s what you need:
- 2-3 Chicken Breasts, sliced in half lengthwise
- 3 Cloves Garlic, minced. I love me some garlic.
- 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil, Divided
- 1 Onion, Sliced
- 2 Red Bell Peppers, Julienned
- 2 Green Bell Peppers, Julienned
- 1 C Dry White Wine, or Chicken Stock
- Salt and Pepper to taste
And here’s how you do it!! It’s pretty simple, great weeknight meal!
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Salt and pepper the chicken breasts. If you want to shake it up a bit, use Herbamare seasoning instead of salt, or add some paprika!
- Get 2 T of your coconut oil nice and hot in a skillet over medium high heat; preferably a cast iron skillet, but at least an oven safe pan.
- Add the breasts and cook about 2 minutes per side, getting a nice brown color. Take out and set aside.
- Heat remaining coconut oil in your pan, and saute all your veggies for about 5 minutes; until tender-crisp.
- Add the wine or chicken stock, simmer down for a minute or two. If you like more seasoning, add some extra salt and pepper to the veggies.
- Add the chicken breasts back on top of the veggies, and transfer to the oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until your chicken is done.
- Take out. Admire how precious and old fashioned it looks. Taste. Admire how comforting it tastes. Enjoy :O)
