* 1 cup chopped onion
* 1 cup each chopped sweet yellow and red peppers
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1 tablespoon minced garlic
* 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 to 6 ounces each)
* 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes, drained

* 1/4 teaspoon sugar
* 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
* 1/8 teaspoon pepper
* Hot cooked pasta

* In a large skillet, saute onion and peppers in oil for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in garlic; cook 1-2 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender.

  • Just a tip-I found that you can buy a rotiseri style chicken at krogers or walmart for cheaper than buying a whole chicken and cooking it yourself. Doesnt sound like it would work in this recipe but I have been doing that with many of my recipes that call for cooked deboned chicken. I just always thought the ones from the deli would be more expensive. I love to cook good food that is easy to fix. I think I will try your recipe out and maybe my tip will make some of your other recipes much easier :)

  • This sounds really good. What kind of pasta do you normally serve it with?

  • I use either penne or bowtie pasta but you can use whatever you like
