This recipe is great! We loved the flavor. To make it better we added more than the amount of veggies required (my husband and I love veggies). To make it easier to eat we cut the chicken into bite size pieces before cooking. Fabulous recipe. A must try! Read More

I thought this was wonderful!!! I've never made pepper steak much less chicken pepper steak but it was fantastic. I took the suggestion of others and only used 1 cup of water and it made plenty of gravy (which tasted great on my garlic mashed potatoes). I also simmered it for about 30 minutes which made the chicken very tender. This will definitely be a keeper in my kitchen. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

My family really enjoyed this chicken dish. Alot of flavorfull gravy... I used about 21/2 lbs of boneless chicken breast and since they were thick I cut them in half length wise and sprinkled each piece with the onion powder and seasoned salt instead of tsp measure also used 14 oz can of stewed tomatoes istead of fresh plum tomatoes. I didn't increase any of the other ingredents. Made 1 lb of bow tie noodles and poured chicken mixture over noodles. I will most definitely save this to my recipe box to make again. Read More

After reading the reviews we used 1/2 cup of green pepper and 1/2 cup of red pepper. Scaled back on the soy sauce used lite soy sauce. Replaced water with chicken broth and added about 1/3 cup of white wine. We did add some cornstarch with water to make sauce thicker. Turned out great. Thanks for the post. Read More

My husband LOVED this. Said it is one of his favorites so far. He's a beef eater so I will probably use beef next time but I think it would be great with either. I followed other reviewers comments and only used 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth instead of the water. I also added red pepper flakes. I was scared of the salt even though I love salt and used low salt soy sauce and just seasoned the chicken with onion powder and black pepper. I too used a can of diced tomatoes. We ate it over rice. This makes 4 large servings. Read More

This was really good and really easy. Took about 20 minutes including prep and cleanup and was very satisfying. I had it with a baked potato topped with greek yogurt which made a very easy and very tasty meal. Read More

I liked this recipe very much. It was easy to prepare very tasty and I will definitely prepare it again. Instead of green peppers I used yellow and red peppers which I had on hand did not add the tomatoes which I didnt have and added green scallions at the end. I also sliced the chicken. Next time I will try it adding the roma tomatoes. But without it was still very good. Read More
