BELL PEPPER GARLIC CHICKEN

What you need

  • chicken breast (I usually do 1-1.25lbs for us 4)
  • 2-3 bell peppers (red and yellow / orange)
  • 4-5 garlic cloves
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt & pepper

What to do

  • Prep your marinate by chopping up bell peppers and mincing garlic.
  • In a mixing bowl, add 3 tablespoons olive oil, Dijon mustard, fresh lemon juice, bell peppers, garlic, and salt & pepper.
  • Mix well and set aside.
  • In a cast iron pan (or whatever you choose to cook chicken), brown your chicken on both sides in some olive oil and salt and pepper, then remove from heat.
  • Using the same pan, pour in mixture and cook down until bell peppers look soft and aromatic. Stir occasionally. 
  • Pour mixture over your chicken. I like to serve this over a bed of plain pearled cous cous, as it absorbs the juices from this dish nicely.

Notes

TIP: If you prefer, you can also cook the chicken and pepper mixture altogether in the oven. When I do this, I layer the chicken in a stainless steel baking dish and pour mixture over the chicken. I cook on 400º for about 20-25 minutes.
