Garlic Chicken w/sweet roasted pepper sauce

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.

chicken_pan Pat chicken breasts dry and season with salt & pepper. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.  Transfer to plate.

onionsAdd onions to fat in the skillet and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.  Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.  



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!

My husband just made this tonight. We ate it over brown jasmine rice. Next time, we're going to skip the sugar and sub white wine for some of the chicken broth.

It's really tasty, though. :)

This was very good. I imagine the sauce would do well tossed with pasta, too. 8)
