'I learned to prepare this dish from a local chef before I was married, but I've varied it slightly,' Jennifer Class of Kirkland, Washington shares. 'Served with a green salad and rice or potatoes, it makes a simple but elegant meal for two.'

I made this recipe and loved it. It was easy, flavorful and I could eat as much as I wanted without feeling guilty. I served it with multigrain noodles and my kids topped it with parmesaen. I used 1 can chicken broth, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 yellow pepper diced, 2 full tablespoons of frozen apple juice concentrate, and 5 chicken breasts. I ended up cooking everything except the chicken earlier in the day. Once I had the chicken done on both sides in the pan I threw everything in a baking dish into the oven 350 until it was slightly thickened (20-30 min). I will double the sauce next time. Read More

Just adding to the peanut gallery --very easy and tasty to make! I was going to make fajitas again but I'm glad I found this recipe instead - basically the same ingredients. I had a jalapeno and a serrano pepper on hand, so I made a spicy sauce instead of a sweet sauce. Added more flavor during the dredge - chili powder, cumin, ground cayenne, garlic powder. Also threw in the tomatoes before the reduction and not after. Read More

Loved this! I had a lot of yellow yummy peppers to use up and this was a great way to use them. The broth and wine made a great buttery sauce, served over israeli couscous. I will definitely make this again. Read More

My boyfriend made this for me last week... His first time ever following a recipe. However, since I am gluten intolerant, he substituted the flour for two parts corn starch and 1 part gluten free corn "bread" crumbs. Delicious! Certainly a new favorite. Read More

I am not usually a fan of entrees based on peppers, but this one is great. It's not a meal you put in your weekly rotation, but definitely one to pull out every once in awhile. Read More

I made the dish without cilantro to see how it would be and the taste was a little bland BUT after I added a tablespoon of sofrito (a popular Latin American puree that blends red bell peppers, garlic, onions, cilantro depending on what recipe you use and is the basis for many dishes) in place of the plain cilanto the flavor was improved. I think you could saute the sofrito along with the wine, red pepper mix for the best flavor rather than adding it at the end like I did. Served this on a bed of whole wheat pasta, garlic bread and stuffed mushrooms. Will definitely make again! Read More
