This tangy mix of chicken thighs and bell peppers combines the kick of balsamic vinegar with savory tomato paste and sweet honey. Garnish with dry-roasted tomatoes, pearl onions, and jalapenos, if you like.

Add garlic and continue to cook for 1 minute. Pour in balsamic vinegar and cook until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, honey, and tomato paste. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes more.

  • Return chicken to the Dutch oven and cook for 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and keep warm. Continue cooking sauce until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Serve chicken on a platter covered with sauce and topped with scallions.

Cook's Note:

You can use any color of bell peppers.

I'm somewhat wary of this recipe. The cook time for the chicken seems rather short for safety sake. Six minutes total for frying and another fifteen in a braise falls short of what I consider a safe cooking time. Anyone else share my concerns or am a "chicken little"? Read More
