This is a really simple dish – I can’t stress to you enough. Before there was Rachel Ray and Jamie Oliver, there was common sense! Then along came the pre-made frozen meals and our common sense and creativity went out the window. I’ve made this meal so many times in a pinch to feed the family, and it takes 15 min. This is super served alone, with rice, over or along side noodles, over polenta, with beans…you can choose! Enjoy!
|Olive Oil to sauté||1-2 thick breast filet of chicken, skinned and sliced into 1-2” strips|
|Diced onion||Lime juice for garnish|
|Sliced peppers (your choice, bell, Anaheim, etc.)||Cilantro for garnish|
Begin with dicing onion and sauté along with olive oil. Once onions are translucent and flavored well w/ salt and pepper, add your chicken strips and stir to incorporate all the flavors in the pan. Cook for about 8 min. Clean and pear your peppers, can cut them in long diagonal strips. Throw in your peppers and cover. Adjust heat to medium. Cook for about 5-8 min. Check to be sure the meat is cooked throughout. When it is cooked, pull pan off and plate your dish. Sprinkle on the juice of a lime and garnish with chopped or whole cilantro.
PS: I accompanied the dish with Basmati rice, lemon, cilantro, beans and other toppings.
