Chicken with Red Peppers and Tomatoes

Share

Chicken dinner is always a crowd-pleaser, and if you need a new dinner idea, this Chicken with Red Peppers and Tomatoes is a super flavorful and utterly delicious option. A combo of juicy chicken and roasted bell peppers smothered in a savory tomato sauce. You can serve this with a chunk of crusty bread to mop up all the juices or over steamed white rice. You can’t go wrong either way.

This classic Roman stew involves just a few ingredients: olive oil, pancetta, chicken, white wine, tomatoes, garlic, bell peppers, and rosemary. It requires a bit of time, as the peppers must be roasted separately in the oven, then peeled, and added to the stew at the end. But the end result always gets rave reviews. Enjoy!

To make the Chicken with Red Peppers and Tomatoes, you will need the following ingredients:

Preheat oven

Place 4 red bell peppers on a baking sheet and roast, turning once or twice, until soft and charred, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil and add the diced pancetta. Cook the pancetta, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes.

Add the chicken, skin-side down, and sear until golden, then flip over and brown the other side. Season the chicken with salt and black pepper to taste.

Half-cover the pan and continue cooking

45

Half-cover the pan and cook for another 45 minutes or until the sauce is dense and the chicken is tender and starts to pull away from the bone. If the sauce is too thick but the chicken is not ready yet, add a splash of water and continue cooking. Taste and season if needed.

Steam roasted bell peppers

Once the bell peppers are roasted, remove from the oven and immediately transfer to the pot with a lid. Let the peppers steam for 10 minutes.
