Sizzling Chicken

Chicken and I have a love /hate relationship. I’m the first one to walk out the door if you give me plain chicken with nothing on it but salt and pepper and . Chicken in my book needs to be full of flavor. Add spices, herbs, different marinades and tada good old boring chicken becomes interesting and down right yummy.That’s why I’m always trying out  things to put a new spin on chicken.

This particular recipe is the result of my experimentation to recreate a dish I had at a restaurant once. The combination of spices, the slight crunch of the vegetables and all the colors made this one of my family’s favorite chicken dishes.

I usually serve this with some rice , fried vegetable rice works nicely too.
