I've been cooking up all sorts of yummy new meals, and decided I just had to take some time and actually post them!
This recipe comes from a new sort of program that Shaw's Supermarkets has going on with America's Test Kitchens - they provide the recipe cards, free - and of course, you buy the ingredients (cute how that works huh?). In any case, that's where this recipe comes from!
Garlic Chicken w/Sweet Roasted Pepper Sauce
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- salt & pepper
- 2 Tbls. vegetable oil
- 1 sm. onion, sliced thin
- 6 garlic cloves, sliced thin
- 1 12oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained & chopped
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 1-1/2 c. low-sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 c. fresh basil, chopped
- 2 Tbls. unsalted butter
In my photo, you'll see more than 4 chicken breasts because the ones I had were really big, so I cut them in half to cut down on cooking time.
Add peppers, sugar, broth & browned chicken, along with any accumulated juices and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes (make sure your chicken is 160°F please!)
Transfer chicken to serving platter and tent with foil. Return skillet to high heat and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Off heat, whisk in basil and butter. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken & serve.
It really was as good as it looks! It was very quick to make (their whole series is 30 minutes or less recipes) and I'll definitely make it again!
